DA 55-300mm Adorama

Pretty happy man here.Ordered the DA 55-300mm lens with Adorama on Monday
and recieved the lens in Australia on Thursday morning.Great service,very impressed.Hellen Oster even emailed me to let me know they had them back in stock so i could order.Just thought id mention that for any aussies thinkin of buying lenses etc.They get a 5 star rating from me.As for the lens I got a few shots in this afternoon but the weather turned crap so hoping to get a good day on the weekend to give it a workout.I took my first pic at 300mm and cropped it no PP.Ive only had the K20D a couple of weeks still getting the hang of it.

well done

I'm sure you will enjoy this lens, I have one to and can vouch for how good it is and great value if you purchased from the States.

Funny too that one of my first shots with it was with a Pelican.

I am taking this lens to the AFL footy on Saturday at the MCG and have a front row seat in the members thanks to a mate , so I am anxious to get to use it in such a situation

Happy shooting mate

Delighted you received your order from Adorama

I am SO pleased that it arrived safely, and that you are happy with it - and love your pelican! (Don't think I'd fancy being too close to that beak....)

Thank you too for your kind words about me; they are very much appreciated.
