Default KP with PLM

I was out chasing Pelicans using the KP and 55-300 PLM and very happy with the faster focus with both and the sharpness of the lens

G'day Hans

Agreed - beaut images and agreeably sharp too

Funnily enough this morning I also went pelican "hunting" and came home with a selection ~ our Aussie birds are white in their body feathers rather than your dark / black? colours. I'll put up some pics tomorrow

You have all reasons to be satisfied!
Over here we don't have pelicans, but as wet as the weather has been for over a month now, I wouldn't be too surprised if a flying fish suddenly passes the window. Too dark even at mid-day for photography.

Cool photos, very well done. I haven't been taking many pictures recently, but I did find some brown pelicans. Only issue is that I always had the 16-85 on the KP, not something longer. So no awesome photo like these.
