Took this today with my backup ist*D. My K10D is still a guest at the Pentax laboratory. The ole' iist*D body still works pretty good despite it's sluggish performance. Shot with the FA*300 f/4.5 in RAW, ISO 1600, f/8 @ 1/750. Processed then ran NR on it......cheers....Don

I haven't even seen one of those in the wild,

Stunning shot

Don, that is fantastic. Where were you standing to get such and interesting shot? Not often you can shoot down on an eagle!

I suspose this is the best you could hope for shooting with an old camera.

Better luck next time....

Only joking - it is a very impressive shot. Really have to have the key elements - a great subject and someone with talent.

The tools for the job are largely secondary.
