A wonderful series of images Philip. I am jealous.

Thanks for showing.

Really super Philip, I'm also very jealous!

How did you like the handling after some time of use? Weight? AF? Did you try the polarizer?

Thanks for posting!

Philip,

I was just wondering if you have tried the Pentax 1.4X HD AW teleconverter with that Pentax 560mm lens yet?

Would it be possible for you to share some of the birds pictures in full resolution on some picture hoster? Even the free flickr account offers that these days.

The pictures you show themselves are wonderful in any resolution as a photograph, but when talking lenses you know there is a pixel peeping curiosity as well.

Hi Miles

Thanks for the comment.

AF is fast and more accurate than I have seen on any of lenses. I actually made a slide show of a gull flying directly at me about 50 frames and converted it to video. I will upload it to youtube and post the link. The handling is fine a bit long with the lens hood extended, but very easy to collapse and extend the hood. Did not have time to play with the polarizer yet.

Cannot wait to try the extender myself no stock in South Africa yet, but our Pentax guys said it should be here by Friday holding thumbs.

Have a look at my gallery some of the earlier shots in the Addo album I only cropped a bit to be able to upload. Also try the dropbox link two full raws to download.

These are outstanding, congrats! I particularly like the kingfisher....magnificent detail and colors.

Do you get much CA with the 560mm? Pentaxforums mentions that in their review.
