    Thanks Roy. I like this version better. Another project I've never done, along with the mailboxes, is to take 9 images similar to yours and put them side-by-side in rows of three, and then stack three rows into one image, i.e., a 3x3 array, sort of a triple triptych or a triptych of triptychs.

    Thanks guys.....the 31 is a beautiful lens, wonderful balance on the camera and smooth focus. It's a little odd focal length (31 X 1.5= 47) but as a "normal" it still works ok. It seems all my lenses need micro adjustment, this was the only one that was a minus adjustment (-3). It is a contrasty lens with nicely saturated images. I haven't shot it as much as I thought I would, but when I do I am very pleased with the results.

    Speaking of the 31FA, it is not only outstanding for landscapes, but does very well close-up as well...focuses down to less than 12". We've begun the "monsoon" season, so between showers, I ducked out the back door and worked on rain drops on the leaves of the Scheffelera tree...subdued light, ISO 400, wide open to f/5.

    Excellent images. "Some" post production is much too modest. I've done work on aquariums and I know it's not easy to get results like yours.

    Carl, very nice, wide open? The 55-300mm is really a very good lens.
    I can only assume that you do not have a garden or a very effective electric fence around same.

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    I've posted a few photos over the last several weeks using the Sigma APO 100-300/4 lens. I've been pretty pleased with the results, but still felt that I wished it could be a little longer.

    Here's a shot (nothing real special) from yesterday (uncropped):

    260mm......1/400 @f/5.6......ISO400

    What's different about this photo is that I used the Sigma 1.4x DG EX teleconverter with it. That means the effective focal length is 1.5 x 260 x 1.4 = 550mm.




    Here's a 1:1 crop:



    I feel this combination will cover a fairly wide focal length (155-630mm) in a kit that is still lighter and much more compact than an equivalent dSLR combo.

    The lens combo focuses very quickly and accurately.

    Thanks Tom. I use the 55-300 wide open most of the time. The lens is loud and slow to focus, but I have no complaints about the optical qualities. We do have a garden and my wife is constantly battling with the deer using fences, netting, and god awful smelling sprays.

    Very sharp Rich. Looks like a nice combo for action shots. My slow 55-300 would struggle with shots like this.

    Hello guys,
    As a proud new owner of k5, it was impossible not to bump into this thread, so i had to register and read/enjoy the pictures through it.

    I have gotten some inspiration, and i hope i can return some as well.

    Here is a picture taken with k5 pancake 40mm outside one of Gaudis houses in BCN, the street right next to where i live Look at the sharpness.




    The only modifications is darker exposure.

    @Trygve: excellent wasp close-ups, showing the remarkable resolving power of the 200 and 300.

    @Ashwin: that second shot is awesome: full of drama !

    @Ario: beautiful close-up of this lovely flower.

    @Michael: gorgeous b/w summer impression

    @Carl: a very enjoyable series of the dragon boat festival.


    Thanks for sharing your shots, guys.
    All the very best.
