Got my new 55-300 Pentax Lens

I got it a couple of days ago, first one sold in my town, but it has been in stock since April '08.

I just put it on my Pentax K10D and have only taken maybe 6-7 shots with it. Pictures are fine, seem really sharp, colours are very bright, IMO and the auto focus seems to react as quickly as my 16-45 Pentax.

It seems to focus quickly, not too much noise and is accurate. So far I've only been able to take a picture of the local bunny, and a couple of blackbirds and our mailbox.

I'm quite pleased with it.
