1st k-5 outing--cute chicks

Got our new camera just in time for the loon to still tolerate hitch-hiking by her chick. Unfortunately, I inadvertently set the ISO at 3200 on 1st image, 320 on second. Both taken @500mm with Bigma, handheld. The K-5 saved the 1st from being unusable, but image quality is still night-and-day better at 320.

This kind of shot and macro is my primary reason to upgrade from K20D. Either due to lens aperature limitations or depth-of-field considerations, we always wanted those couple extra ISO stops without killing the image quality. I already miss the dedicated SR switch, though.
