I have now finally made up my mind and bought myself the new Pentax K5 and Pentax 300mm prime lens.
I posted some Bird in Flight shots with this equipment on my Blog. I am really impressed with this camera so have a look.
I also posted the specs on the camera and lens, if you are interested.

Hi Philip,

Congrats on the new purchase!! I am sure you will be very happy with the K5! <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: -->

Love your Cape Sparrow in flight shot!

I am busy considering getting a Nikon D3s or its replacement and a Nikon 500mm F4... though might still go for a K5 and Sigma 500mm F4.5 ??

Want to wait till the end of this year though. I might stick with Pentax after the Ricoh buyout. Looks like they will finally bring Pentax back up to the top which hopefully means they intend to release those fabulous super telephoto lenses again?

Cheers,
Gordon

Thanks Gordon. With all the money you are going to get with the LBJ's made simple you should buy the best equipment you can afford. If not then keep to Pentax. Worth the money spend.

He he he, I wish it was going to make that kind of money!

LBJ's was created out of the love for the subject rather than the money... ultimately the market here in SA is too small to really make a living from writing books. Overseas is a different story!

I have heard rumours of a Nikon D4 due out at the end of this month?

I want to wait and see if it is released and then if its any good... once problems are ironed out I will sell my kidneys and get one... <!-- s:spin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/spin.gif" alt=":spin:" title="Spinning" /><!-- s:spin: -->
