Hi AML see you like this forum it seems like a nice place. And it seems everyone likes the 55-300mm, at least most. And nice pics. But the reason I write is I have always liked the "K10 proud owner" where did you get yours "Samsung GX10 proud Owner"? and how do you feel if I use it? I really like it.

Great shots,

The hunting probably stopped because of the bright light and contrasty shots.

Low light is always an issue especially at f/5.6.

Where in Australia are you located?

Did u use the 1.4xTC as u had mentioned at the beginning?

I need to know the performance of DA55-300 with a 1.4x TC and a 2x TC..in terms of Autofocus (I am an uncurable optimist!) and IQ..

Also, which is the optimum aperture to be used with either of the TCs?

I dont mind smaller apertures as I'll use flash.. So if the IQ is retained with a 2x TC, i'll sell off my beloved k300/4 for it..I have never had an experience with an AUtofocus lens at 300mm..for some reason I wonder it is going to be good..

Hi James,

Nice too see you here. One of the forum members made it for me. I'm sure he wouldn't mind you using it too. Go right ahead and save it and use it.
If you have any problems just PM me and i'll find the original file and send it to you.

Hi hrishi,

I did try the 1.4x TC. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in reality the lens is too slow with a TC, it's very slow going from close to infinity focus and mine hunted quite badly. When i did get a couple of lucky shots (which i can't seem to find now), the IQ was very good with the 1.4x, can't comment on the 2x though.
From my own personal experience with the 55 -300 i wouldn't buy this lens just for the intention on using a TC with it, you'll end up sorely disappointed, imo.
