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!

Re: More from the K3 & DA560

Philip,

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

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.

Re: More from the K3 & DA560

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.

CA can be a problem especially with adjacent black and white feathers in bright sunlight. It is less than I use to get with my Sigma 300 2.8 so just something to watch out for.

Yes I myself have been hunting that Kingfisher for more than 10 years my first decent shots.

Thanks Angelo

You're so merciless upon us

Fantastic shots, what a lens (won't mention your skill because of your cruelty toward poor peopleĀ  )
