Random Shots with the "Big Guy" and a K-1
Lens: DA* 300/4 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Around the House 
Posted By: Sailor, 12-26-2017, 05:09 PM

Here are a few photos from my early exploration of my Christmas present, a new DA* 300 which I've dubbed the "Big Guy" given it's bazooka-like dimensions and weight. I've wanted this lens for some time, even though I have little use for it; since we stopped sailing, I no longer need the reach to photograph other boats, dolphins and birds while underway. However, when I stumbled onto the fact the Big Guy is compatible with my K-1, I couldn't resist ordering one for my wife to give to me for Christmas.

That is one very sharp lens and it creates good Bokeh as well.

Thanks, Trev. I'm very excited about mine. I bought it for use with my K-1, but I'm also anxious to pair it with my K-3.

It will be good for when you shoot those Ibis.

Nice series of shots Jer. TFS
