Pentax DA 55-300mm protrait samples

Hi everyone!
I want to buy a telephoto lens for shooting portraits, but i'm on a very tight budget. So i want you to show some examples of portraits that was made with the help of this lens. Thanks for help.

I have a 55-300mm and although itís a great lens, I find my DA 70 is a better lens for portraits. You have a lot of 50ish lenses, have you thought about selling 1 or 2 and putting that money with your $340 a 55-300 would cost to buy a DA70?

Excellent Dave.. the photos are tack sharp and the colors are great. I've seen many great photos made with this lens and I think it's the best value lens Pentax ever made.

I don't want to sell this 50mm lenses because i often use them. FA 50 for low-light situations and Volna-9 for macro photos.But i want to shoot at longer focal length. From 100mm to 200mm.
