That`s fine, please post a picture or two showing us how your images are losing out without more megapixels.

I'm a birder, so I constantly end up having to use 100% crops.

(In hindsight, I wish I'd bought a K-5 in early 2012. I couldn't get one earlier because I was unemployed. Then I wouldn't be worrying about the new body, just pondering whether to cough up for a DA* 300.)

Hi Paul, yes I can see your problem. I have the same situation and if birding becomes a major part of my photography again (at present I have health issues that stop too much outdoor work) I will seriously consider a Sigma 150-500.

Have a look at this, remember to change -dot- to . and the page should display.


I purchased my K5 July 2012 when I came out of hospital as a perk to cheer myself up. It has replaced my K20d, and my K100d is still with me as a back up. The K5 is a dream machine but I did a wedding two weeks ago and my assistant used the K100d, the work she did with that old camera is amazing.
