Adopting two bodies approach

For more than a year I was shooting K-5 and then K-3 paired with Sigma 500/4.5 almost exclusively. Despite the brilliance of the Sigma 500/4.5 very often I felt that 500mm was too long for some situations. About 2 months ago I purchased K-5IIs as a second body solution. I'm still working on how to carry and handle a second body along with my way of carrying and shooting 500/4.5 ( ). However, I figured out that it is going to be based on PeakDesign Pro Clamp with some custom tweaks which are still in works.

There is a first attempt of shooting two bodies last weekend. I really liked it.

White faced ibis (K-3 and Sigma 500/4.5)

Green-winged Teal, Male (K-3 and Sigma 500/4.5)

GBH: K-5IIs + DA*60-250/4 ( it was so close that I got only head and beak at 500mm)

Interracial couple : K-5IIs + DA*60-250/4 (I see them 2nd year in the raw)

Canada geese at the sunrise: K-5IIs + DA*60-250/4
