First DA 55-300 shots

I bought the DA 55-300 in Calgary, AB about halfway through my road trip. I'm still semi-sorting through the 500+ RAW images I took, are some first shots;

All hand-held.

Great pictures

I agree that second picture is terrific. It draws you to it instantly.

looks like great photos and the lens is working well. the infinity focus sharpness is looking good. seems like more and more people are purchaising this lens and getting great results

it looks like you could have used a polarizer for some of the mountain photos

Thanks for the replies everyone. Yes, the glacier shots and the distant Mt. Robson Peak definitely needed a polarizer.
