I have the FA-J 70-300mm lens, which is similar to the DA L in many ways (plastic mount, no quick shift) and probably not as good optically. As a newbie, you won't go wrong with the DA L.
Not IF (internal focus) too so if you mount a Polarizing filter it will go round and round..and round..

The only thing that would make me pick the 50-200 over the 55-300mm would be the WR.
And to be clear, that's only on the WR version, not the version optionally sold in the kit with the K-x or the regular version.

If one is buying the K-x kit that has the two L zooms, this is kind of moot. Unless they turn around and sell the L's.

Is there any truth to the rumor that the DAL lenses are made out of spiced lentils?
Yum I hope so.

Shame Pentax! Dhame!

Yuk, You could never pay me enough to own a DAL lens.

I was so disappointed when I saw just how crippled the K-X and lens's were.

Shame Pentax! Shame!

Sorry to dig up an old thread. But this thread came on top of google search results for differences between DA 55-300 and the DA L version.

Just wanted to point out (for future googlers) that this statement in the thread is not correct.

Btw what I was googling for, was whether the hoods for both are compatible. It looks like they are.
