Jean Phillippe,

Beautiful captures, the kingfisher is spectacular. Canon's 500 f/4 is much better than the f/4.5, and considerably pricier, but that lens still would not have touched what you got. I also have been next to a 7D and its noise is very disturbing. No way would I want to shoot with it when I'm out looking for owls. The K5 is the winner as well. What an awesome combination FA*600+K5 makes for birding, but also considerable skill on your part to get these shots.

Congratulations on your pics and thanks for posting.


Thanks LPA

Yes indeed I have the FA*600 for 2 years now and have learned to use it;  the K5 is a killer with this lens; I think I'll make a try with the K5IIs and keep one of my K5, thus may be in a near future even better shots ?
