Hi All,

It's time for our monthly outing again. Our official Pentax outing started exactly three years ago (May 2008), but our very first organized Pentax outing was in Dec 2007 at SBG. So this round we'd go there again, and hopefully we can capture some nice portraits/flowers/macros.

Please bring your macro lens, tele lens, portrait lens, and your families as well, we are gonna have a lot shooting and chitchat fun there :cool:

Date: 21 May 2011
Time: 7:30am onwards
Venue: Singapore Botanic Garden


Meeting up 8:00am at the SBG Visitor Center (there is a coffee shop there). Head out at 8:30am sharp. Please come early if possible.

Cheers and happy shooting!

Goodness..is that what I think it is.

That alone is probably enough reason to go to SBG for this outing.....once in a lifetime (at least for me) to see this...:sweat:

Yeah, I have never ever seen the Pentax FA* 600mm f/4 up close before so this is well worth the meet-up. :)

Perhaps I should move my Vesak Day class to this date instead... If there is any interest that is.
I don't wanna travel far with my lighting gig bag. Had a bad rash the last time around... :(
