This lens takes my K-30 to another level

Customer review by drispin

5.0 stars by drispin

I spent 3 months getting used to using my Pentax K-30, then finally decided to enhance its capabilities with this new lens. I might have benefited by getting this telephoto lens sooner, but I think waiting until I was more comfortable with the camera paid off. I am getting incredible results taking shots of a pro baseball team, and expect I will get even better results as my experience with camera and lens continues to grow. Worth every penny, and I couldn't be happier!

Pentax DA 55-300 - good if you get a good copy

Customer review by 73fs

2.0 stars by 73fs

I've had the opportunity to try several copies of this lens so far. Two were very unacceptable with very soft left-side performance at the short end. The others had comparatively minor decentering or other defects that affected edge performance past 200mm. The lens has a non-rotating front section, simplifying use of a polarizer (a polarizer can be rotated through a small removable section of the supplied hood), and the hood is a bayonet-mount, so it's not dependent on filter mounting threads. I believe that the design of this lens is very good for a consumer-grade product in this range, and a good copy would probably deserve a 4-star rating, but it's difficult to get a copy that fully realizes the benefits of the design.
