Sample Images: Pentax 560 MM Lens
It will take a month or two for me to write an honest review of this monster lens.
I decided it would be a good idea to post a few photos before they get buried in my files.
This Northern Shoveler, launching into the sky was taken on the morning of November 22, 2020.
Using 1.4 Teleconverter the focal length of this image was 784 MM.
The Great Egret image was taken December 8, 2020, shortly before 9 AM.
Focal Length: 560 MM
A Gitzo tripod and Wimberly Gimbal with Arca-Swiss quick release plate.
Unless walking a short distance, shouldering the contraption, a backpack is required.
My favorite spots (hiking) for wildlife photography are kilometers away from home.
I backpack the big lens, while I shoulder the tripod and camera with a 300MM lens attached.
Nearing a location where the big lens will be needed, I unpack and build my big rig.
One of these days, I'll have an assistant photograph the old guy hiking with all his gear.
Meanwhile, just use your imagination!
