Yes, we've had balmy weather this week. A great day for shooting.
I enjoyed learning a bit of SilkyPix today; it's interface is a bit different than PS, takes some getting used to, and it's SLOW because all the adjustments you make are then performed real-time on the RAW file, so you have to wait until it's done to proceed. I found, via a tip in the user's manual, to zoom in while you're previewing the image and the adjustments work much quicker, since they're only being performed on the preview window, until you click on "develop", then it does the whole file.
Regarding adapter rings, I have an old Minolta MD lens set, including a Tokina 80-200 @ F2.8, which would make a real fine birding lens, with an equivalent angle of view of a 160-400 @ F2.8. But I'm waiting on the dedicated MD adapter ring, rather than having to get both the u4/3-to-4/3 and 4/3-to-MD rings.
PS: Added several more attachments, couldn't resist this assortment of bathtubs outside a thrift shop on north 4th street, and the New Mexican folk art.
