    Handheld. At the time the Sigma 150-500mm OS HSM had dropped to about US $699. That was just before it was discontinued for Pentax mount. IMO, for most of us, that Sigma 150-500mm OS HSM was a ...
  • What are California quail doing in Utah? Cheers. Ron
  • Hi folks, Gambel's Quail (might be California Quail) - Another first from my Porch Sittin' Place (PSP). Taken with the Pentax K-3 II + Pentax 1.4X HD AW + Pentax 150-450mm lens. Subject distance ...
  • Replied in Jerry...
    Thanks for the tests Jerry. I appreciate them. Although I would really like to know how the autofocus version works (speed of focus, tracking, etc.) with the K-1 I can still tell from your images ...
  • Replied in Sweets...
    I don't see any Hack Files for using the K-1 or K-01 to do the conversion. However, once you use a camera that does have Hack Files then the converted lens will work as a screw drive lens on all ...

  • Replied in LaRee...
    Thanks LaRee. I thought these Robins were all over north America. I have never heard of a "California Jay" before. I had to do some research. I found the following on Wikipedia . "The western scrub jay

    About 95 farenheit (35 celcius). Thanks. Ron
  • Created discussion thread Open Mouth Robin (4 imgs)
    Hi folks, This is more about the "Open Mouth" than it is about the images. This North American Robin landed on my fence. From my Porch Sittin' Place I took some shots. He was sitting there for ...
  • Dale, those are truly outstanding captures. You did very, very well. Thanks for showing these. I really enjoyed viewing them. Ron
  • Replied in Steven...
    Make sure you keep busy with things you enjoy. It is so dang easy to become a couch potato if you don't take care. Carl always told me when and where to point my lens when taking those kinds of ...
  • FWIW: I tested the above again today using a Pentax k-5IIs and Sigma 400mm f/5.6 Tele-macro lens. It works the same as I wrote in the OP. In doing the test I manually set the lens to 10 feet then ...
  • I tested the Pentax k-5IIs + Sigma 400mm f/5.6 Tele-macro today and it does work similar except it is not in anyway as good as the K-3 / K-3II. Ron
