Super shot. Roy, you have competition. Unfortunately, this photo has stimulated a desire for that Pentax lens, which my wallet cannot afford. Like.

Thank you for your comments go4IT and Nuri, they are very much appreciated. go4IT - I didn't pay anything like the full price for the lens, I was very lucky that a good offer came up so it's worth keeping an eye open
Kind regards, Yvonne

That is a really expressive starling portrait with wonderful detail
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thank you so much Giulio, David, Bill and David, much appreciated. It won our camera club competition last night ☺️ David S - Iím finding the K-1 great at higher ISOs, I just did a bit of denoising on the background on this one.
Kind regards, Yvonne

That's a super shot Yvonne! I use 6400 on the K-1 without hesitation!
