That's never going to happen!

But these shots are so sharp and full of color...

Great series!

You shoot at really low iso with that lens, and it seems to work out really good!

I always knew that this lens was underestimated

The elephants, interesting one also the first time I observed this in the wild. Spoke to one of the rangers, they were both males as soon as they get older the males must leave the herd. He said the younger bull is showing submissiveness to the older one as not to get chased out of the herd.

Re: More from the K3 & DA560

Have to agree with all others : very nice, crisp and detailed shots. Looks like you mastered this long tele. Did you say you shoot it handheld ?

I wish Pentax had a nicer price point for this one. I would seriously be tempted it it were in the $2,500 - $3,000 range.

When you think about it they have DA 300 at circa $1,200 and when the 560 at circa $6,000. In my books there is a gap that could be filled...

Nice images, weakest point is the bokeh imo. Thanks for sharing!
