Which lenses did you use for those pics? Would the lens that comes as part of the lens kit option be able tocapture pics like those?

Hi. I used a 24-135 tamron, the pentax 50-200DA and the little bird with the FA*300. I don't see why any lens you use for the landscapes wouldn't be possible. Not sure about being able to get that bird picture though. It was at ISO 800 and 1/125s. Might need a better lens than the kit for that shot. I think I was lucky to get it. That's an awfully slow shutter for 450mm (cropping factor). Cheers....Don

Sorry to bum you out Reg. Life can be a b__ch sometimes. Seriously though, if you're looking spend around $800-$1000, you can get a pretty good setup for starting off. High ISO shots that are definitely usable, and better IQ. Might be worth a look...cheers..Don

If I am to start again, I would go for the body K100D and FA50mm 1.4. The total is around US$800. Absolutely low light and a great walkaround combo. This set up is to allow expansion (in lens) and the quality is comparable to the best equipment in the market now.
I am sure Fuji 6500 is a great camera. But like any consumer electronics, price drops like a rock . Lens hardly drop in price and in some case it can appreciate in value.
That is my input.

Daniel
