1st and 2nd outing with my lens
Lens: DA* 300mm F4 Camera: Pentax K5iis Photo Location: florida 
Posted By: dewolf, 08-07-2016, 03:16 PM

My first and 2nd outing to the Rookery with my new DA* 300mm F4. This copy, unlike the first was great right out of the box. Last 2 days drizzle, overcast and breezy, but thanks to this lenses ability I can now shoot at F4-6.3, which makes overcast weather nothing to fear I love this lens.
