All I can say is ----- WOW. What setting did you have the camera set on and which lens did you use. I'm a newbie and I can't wait to get my K10D to try my hand at shots like this. Thanks for sharing.

I used my FA* 300mm lens at ISO 400, manual focus because of the branches and center metering.

It always amazes me how many Bald Eagles are around here, since I always see one or two while driving around. Now getting close enough to take a good photo is another story with a lens this short, but it can be done.

Most bird photographers use much longer lenses, but then they are not able to be as moble as I need to be, which is why I stick with the 300.

Great shot, you must be very fast to get the Eagle so sharp.

Have you ever used a 1.4x or 2x TC with this lens? What's your opinion on the degradation (if any) in sharpness? Also by using a TC with this telephoto prime lens, does it slow down the autofocus speed at all?

Taken with the same lens and a Pentax 1.4x converter. Another manual focus shot!
