Sigma 500/4.5 + Pentax 1.4X HD AW (10 imgs)

Hi folks,

Someone had asked me to shoot this rig from my Porch Sittin' Place. So....

Pentax K-3 + Pentax 1.4X HD AW + Sigma 500mm f/4.5, tripod, gimbal. I shot TAv in RAW, converted to JPG, and resized for the web and that is all.

I was taking a few shots when a huge burst of wind came up. This Western Kingbird was really struggling to hang on. I was shooting in Continuous M and now I wish I had shot in Continuous H.

Here is what I saw:

This rig needs to have EV +0.7 to +1.0 for a proper histogram.

I will now have to shoot again with the Sigma 1.4X EX DG for a comparison. If I remember corectly the Sigma 1.4X works better with this lens than the Pentax 1.4X does.
