The rescue was just me testing out some panning shots

By the way all were shot with the Pentax M-200mm f4 with a 2x kenko TC (unfortunately i chose the wrong side of the river to go to so didnt have much of a choice). The wide shots were with the Sigma 10-20 EX

what f-stop with the 200?
the sigma seems to have excellent color.

Most were around f/8 on the apeture ring, so taking into account the TC theyd be f/16. Much easier to get them in focus that way

you did real well from the wrong side of the river
thats a fair distance away
where abouts were you
i was up in Kings Park on Saturday
it really was to far away
and i was in south perh on sunday
but not at the air show
and it was really packed out
i took a few photos on saturday
this is the only one i have "fixed"
raken with an old hanimex 400mm screw mount
that never really seems to be in focus

Gumnut I went to Langley Park in the hope of being able to get in and see the planes while landed, but the line was so long I didnt bother.
