Some of fa*200mm pics with k5iis in Egyptian village
22

Some information about my village, Nassimia, where I was born. It is one of the villages famous for cultivating Egyptian rice. In the winter months, which are by the way very warm, all kinds of vegetables are grown in addition to the wheat crop. I forgot to say that it is one of the villages in Mansoura Governorate in the Nile Delta.

All are SOOC .no editing lam far from my pc .

..

Yes Pentax is not for birding and me too !

Very nice! You wouldn't want to see (current) pictures of Ottawa for sure . One comment, EXIF on your pictures shows the year 2012.

The camera is still factory default.

Weather in Egypt now is enjoyable. 23 degrees in morning and 14 at night. A soft light sun all the day . I still wear my summer clothes.

I was lucky enough to buy it brand new from my local store when they made a clearance of all the Pentax gear a 7 years ago. They know how i love the FA * lenses. I got it at very good price.

I don't know what the secret of FA lenses. It's rendering of green color is amazing.

Since they have moved out of Pentax cameras and lenses i have to buy on line at a high price. So I decided to buy some x and z mount.

Yep, I have seen you on the fuji forum, I have an x-t4 I use as well as the Pentax gear, have considered a mount as well.

Thank you tassos

I will do that next time. I dont like big cities or the very modern places. I like  photographing people in countryside..people in streets.

Maybe you will laugh when you know that I never visited  the great pyramids in Giza even i live beside it before going to uae for work.

Thank you so much Paul .

Yes k5iis and FA *200 mm 2.8 are my preferred ones. I discovered that tele photo lenses are the best solution for street photography in some areas and places.

Yes, the 200 is excellent in this aspect. Used to own it myself, one of my favourites. Sold it when I got the D-FA 70-200 2.8 to go with the K-1. But I sometimes miss the compact and lightweight 200

I agree... particularly in parts of Africa where there can be some cultural sensitivities about being photographed to navigate. Best to get permission of course.
