Just bought a pentax Da 55-300mm on E-bay

After a couple of weeks of snooping around I finally got (I think) a good deal on this lens, at 270$, used, but mint condition.

I cant wait to try it out! I've only used my Sigma 17-70mm til now.

Am I a sucker at 270$?

Next up, my first 50mm lens, got my eye on a F1.7 and a FA 1.4...

That is about average (on the good side). You won't regret it, and the earlier version is definitely worth it over the newer DA L kit lens version.

270 for non L sounds good.
Happy shooting.

I was watching that one, for price, no intent to bid.

I think a good call as new DA L's are selling for about $230.
