Oh, how I love this lens! The combination of the DA*300 and the K5iis.



PS Please do check this photo in HD. The detail is amazing. Hand held, although steadied against a solid surface.

The DA*300 is a nice lens. You've got a nice crisp shot with it.

Purple...? Your WB is off... Great image from a fine lens. Love mine and also combo with DA1.4xTC which suffers almost no IQ loss.

Thanks! It's a struggle every time I have to take the lens off the camera!

I didn't name the bird! I've been hanging out for a discount on the 1.4TC, then Pentax announced a 100-450 lens on the way...
