An F-16 approaching runway at Lahore (420mm, 12x zoom).jpg


I had just missed a fighter pilot that preceded this one when I ran out to the balcony. I was pretty successful with this one,
considering that I got it in focus. This is the max the camera would do, 420mm (12x on 35mm).

other sizes: small medium original

Thanks Samad, it was a difficult catch. I bought the Pentax *ist DL quite some time ago but I still haven't received it here in Lahore because of the crappy customer service and late shipping from
Now I'm thinking about selling that one and buying the K100D instead (the DL's price has gone up :) and the K100D is now cheaper). I would love to get the K10D (10MP, Shake Reduction CCD, lots more, for $999) when it comes out later in October. I don't have the money for it yet any way :)

Very nice. Difficult to get shot really. What DSLR are you planning to get?

Thanks Andrys, hopefully I'll do better when my DSLR arrives.

At those speeds, it's amazing you got this! And on the spur of the moment.
