China with the K-5 IIs

I had the good fortune to be able to make trip to China last month. It was a guided tour so we covered a lot of ground, but not much choice over when we visited the major sites. I left the tripod at home - there would not have been time to set it up in most situations and part of the trip was cruising on the Yangtze river, where the tripod would not have been much use.

All shots are with the K-5 IIs, mostly at ISO 400 and above to drive up the shutter speed. The DA 21mm Ltd did the lions share of the work, but the 15, 40 and 70 all saw some action. For the indoor performances, I used the SMC DA 55-300.

Some samples below:
