Hey yeatzee,
Nice composition and interesting light IMO. I do feel there is a little bit much empty space to the left of your main subject though, you may disagree.

And on another note, how quickly do you feel the 55-300 focuses on the K-7 compared to the K200D?

I figured it looked to cramped with the left side cropped more.... personal preference of course.

When I first got the K-7 I put on the DA 55-300mm and it seemed noticeably faster. I haven't done a formal comparison though.. heck I haven't used my K200d with this lens in forever.

As I look at your image again, I think I might be changing my mind slightly
I like it anyway.
Thanks for the thoughts on the DA55-300 with K-7. I'm actually thinking I might get a K-7 in a few months time... maybe

Its an absolute joy to use in comparison with the K200d. The K200d will always hold a special place, but everything about it is worse..... it just feals cheap compared to the K-7

More comments welcome guys!
