Default Really Enjoing My K5 New Set

Went out again today with my K5, and 55-300 lens. This camera gives me so much more room to get shots I would have otherwise lost. The dynamic range is a joy, and this little 55-300mm lens is the bomb. Really impressed how much detail it captures.

Fine series of very interesting photos - amazing how little noise at such high ISO's!
Squirrel #4 (peering around the trunk) is my favorite for composition and lighting... (and cuteness factor too - although the vulture is certainly very cute too!)

Great photos Tony. I agree with Mole -- the squirrel peering at you from behind the tree is my favorite as well. The K5 seems to be serving you well at home, and I'm sure it will enable you to take some exceptional photos while on your upcoming trip.

I agree with Mole - the vulture is a nice shot as is the squirrel looking round the trunk. You do seem to be having lots of fun with the K5, and it seems to be serving you well, too.

Thanks! I am having a blast. I just ordered my 18-135 lens. I think it will serve me well in Italy.

Yep, that squirrel poking it's head around the tree is a real winner.

The 55-300 is an amazing lens for the money, it really is.
