I understand the logistics of taking both big lenses along as I both hunt with a gun and a camera, but I personally am interested in how the Bigma performs on a Pentax camera.

Although your Canon shots are nice, I am much more interested in Pentax shots since that is what I use. It isn't that I can't afford Canon gear like yours, it is just that I prefer the Pentax image look, which is more like film and less like an amazing computer generation. On the other hand the Canon is lightning fast when taking photos of fast moving critters and beats the Pentax every time.

That is why I made the comment, since I know you have the Bigma and a K10D, which should be able to produce great results especially on Elk which are not exactly fast movers.

Tom, thanks for the comment, if I can catch the elk on their migration back to the high country I will try to get some with both set ups. The problem I had before I bought my Canon set up is Elk do not normaly like sunshine so they are always in the shade or real low light.
