Roger, all I can do is Drool after seeing your shots. I can only hope I will get near the quality of your shots with my Pentax K10D. Tomorrow is a big day for me, my K10D is due to be delivered. Being a newbie, I'm excited to start learning.
Can you fill us in on the lens you used on your K1OD to take these fantastic photos?
Again, thanks for sharing. Since I ordered my camera, I've been watching for your posts everyday :|

A mighty nice comment. Thank you very much.

I also am a NEWBIE so I am not sure how much help I can be, but if I can help just ask.

I ordered two lenses with my K10D. I did a lot of reasearch and asked opinions on many boards.

My walk around and background lens is a Tamron 24 - 135

My close up lens is a Sigma 50 - 500

One thing I have found out or at least for me is I ALWAYS have my camera on burst mode. More often than not the best photo of any given bunch is not the first one.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy yours as much as I am enjoying mine.

Great shootin' Roger! Man, I'd love to see some blue skies like those you've got. I guess we'd have those temperatures too though. Nice work....Don

I'm really amazed you shoot at 500mm handheld. Thats awesome. You must have steady hands. I hope I can do similar. Just ordered the Sigma 135-40mm. If I can handhold at 400mm I'll be a really happy camper.

You know after reading about your set up and how it weighs about what a rifle used to i thought about this set up. http://bushhawk.shopol.com/Group/5YDIQ7IWWOKX6ZMJ.htm

Not that you need any stabilization, but for extreme conditions might be worth looking into. If your used to a rifle it might be similar in feel.

Hi Roy, I haven't used my Digiscope since I got my K10. Once I get real comfortable with it I will go back to having my didiscope with me as well as my FZ30.

Here is a photo of my digiscope.

Hi Spiritbro, thanks for looking and commenting. I don't think hand held is the correct description. So far I have used tree limbs, a log, rock, fence posts & I have tried out my binocular harness. I do plan on using a monopod and maybe even a tripod after I get more comfortable with the camera and the lenses.

Interesting information thanks for posting the link.
