Well done, Roger. I think you have graduated. The Best of Everything on your new venture with the Pentax and the forum there. Come back for a visit some time. I can't think of anyone I would rather have my spare rubber stamp. LOL

Those look great Roger. Looks like your learning curve was very short this time. I'll check in over at Pentex every once in a while and see how you are doing. Don't forget us now.

Jerry your comments are always so kind thank you. I have been trying some of the other forums but they just don't feel like home. Everybody has been very nice but it is still like I am visiting someplace not being at home.

Once I get the hang of this new set up I plan on taking my FZ30 with me and will do some shots with it as well so I will be back with those photos. I would like to try and take the same shot with both cameras so I can see the difference if any.

Any equipment, in the right hands, is bound to work well. Whether it is fromK10D or FZ30, Roger's pics are certainly a treat to the viewers. Just pl let us know when you post pics in the Pentax forum.

Very nice Roger, the hawk is my favorite of course I am partial to birds. Were they hand held or tripod?

I'm very impressed with the Sigma lens Roger, pictures are sharp and clear. The transition and learning curvefrom theFZ to the Pentax seems to be progressing nicely. Well done.

Roger, I have two items for discussion if you don't mind:

Item 1, would it be possible for you to take pictures of the same subject with the two cameras for comparison as Squirl33 did with his? I'm sure a lot of us will benefit from this exercise.

Item 2, I've watched carefully the pictures and although they are assharp and clear as any you have posted, IMHO that "golden afterglow" that we got used tois missing. I know I could be wrong about this and please forgive me. I'm asking these questions because I'm interested in the Pentax and Sigma setup. Thanks Roger.

Emmanuel
