Bah, humbug! Would I ever love to get shots like this! Which is having the most impact on the high quality you are getting - the camera or the lens?

With this lens, the camera. At f8 I get shots at ISO 1600 as good as ISO 800 with the K7.

Ed, I wouldn't dare try to pronounce the name of your nature preserve. But I will say that's one of the nicest GBH photos I've ever seen. Perfect light, perfect timing, and lovely reflections of foliage in the water. I'm very envious.

Well, being a Florida resident I can pronounce it... once real slowly.
Outstanding shot Ed!

Have got to agree with Lou - it is indeed a fine camera, but getting the best lighting, composition and timing are all in the photographer...
