K5+DA*300: BIFs and BITs
Dec 17, 2010

While hiking on some nearby trails the last several days with my K5+DA*300, I've managed to get some shots of birds in flight and in trees. One thing about the K5 I've come to appreciate is that it can handle all the resolution sent to it by the wonderful DA*300. C&C welcome.
