The DA55-300 at its very best!

Today the wife took her K-30 for a bit of BIFing - shooting birds in flight, that is.

Our previous K-x, nor the K-5s we used to have, worked very well for BIF, but this baby does, yes, indeed!

Very nice - especially the last one in the set "Male Mallard".

I used to have this lens with great success - only sold it when I bought the DA* 60-250.

So the K-30 huh - I guess they really did improve the auto focus then.
