    Hello from Ukraine, guys! Thanks for the great thread!
    A few weeks ago i bought 43lim for my K-5, very happy with this lens.

    Requires some skill and concentration to get a rock pile like that, quite remarkable.
    Good catch, David. But don't tell me you did this, right ?

    Kind regards.

    Rich, your SA series is stunning and the shots of the hippos and that bird are superb. But the killer shot for me is this leopard: just awesome !

    All the very best.

    Welcome aboard, Bogdan !
    And what a fine series to introduce yourself here (love the chickens and sunflowers).
    You know the FA43 is Jim Radcliff's favorite Pentax lens (he's one hell of a photographer) and I can see your passion for this lens, too.
    Hope to see more from the Ukraine

    All the very best.

    Bart, Jim, Vlad, Roy.......thanks for the comments. The one take away from this trip for me has been that the photo...the final product.....became secondary to the photographic process.

    I always would work for the "shot".....but when I stopped working for it, the shot just came. It was very relaxing.

    Hi there Trygve,

    what a fine lens that 300: excellent series of that dragonfly and gorgeous colours.
    But the little lizard makes my day

    All the very best.

    Hand held stitched pano's with the 21 Limited. I really should use a tripod and my pano head but I'm getting by without. Laziness, when out walking is my excuse. These are in early stages of preparation and still need a bit of colour adjustment.
    I'm really liking this lens and combined with the 70 Limited is a great combination. I recently added the 40mm f2.8 as a halfway house.
    Must confess all the 200mm and 300mm shots by Knorp and RichM are getting my old wildlife fingers twitching.

    Rich M - the Rhino shot is fantastic. Cool that color of the vegetation seems so right for the shot. Blyde River Canyon you looked pretty darn close to the edge!

    Love that Rhino photo Rich, well done!

    A few recent favourites of mine...

    My eyes seem to prefer the B&W version of this little kitty...(colour version here: LINK)

    FA 50mm f1.4, f3.5 @ 1/100th, ISO400

    His cute little brother:

    FA 50mm f1.4, f2.2 @ 1/100th, ISO160

    And finally, their adorable (and tiny) mother:

    70mm LTD, f2.8 @ 1/125th, ISO400

    What can I say? I fall for cats every time but these are great, especially spooky, 'batty' cat number 1 (he is going to be big trouble)!

    That's funny Lee. They were skittish farm cats and didn't like to be approached at all.

    Cat #1 was different than the rest, he walked up to me and liked to be held...very unique cats they were. A lot different from the 14-pound big sucky cat (Angus) I have at home!

    Fantastic light & tones in those shots Rich. I wish there were less plants in the middle in the 2nd shot but still.

    Please tell me when this becomes boring...

    6:25am.....sunrise at 6:57am......ISO 25600. This is why I love the K-5.

    Not boring - the animal in the wild shots are great. I hope to have an opportunity to do this one day.

    At present the best I can do is take some photos of our cats. Probably should do that!

    Thanks Rich, well actually the IQ is degrading somewhat: dead center it's not too bad, but in the corners ... mmm.
    That said, let me add that I basically shoot wide open at 2.8(~4,5).
    The DA200 is at it's best between 5.6 and 8.0, but that translates to roughly ~9 and ~13 with the T/C resulting in slow speeds or (very) high ISOs.

    Kind regards.
