Bird photo booth with K5?
1

Out of interest, I clicked onto the "Kickstarter" display on DPR's homepage. This in turn lead me to a comment by a contributor to check out "bird photo booth". Basically a bird feeder with a housing for an iPhone in it. Looks like it takes great pictures. I neither have, nor pln to get an iPhone, but I have a K5 which the very good "capture in focus" option.

Now I'm thinking - build a housing, use CIF and there you go!  But what lens to choose, It would need to be MF or have MF switch, also fairly close focusing ability and reasonable depth of field. Has anyone any suggestions (try and be kind please), or am I into the realms of fantasy here?

Kind regards, Rod.
