Test shots with DA 55-300
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: K-7 ISO: 100 Aperture: F8

Theese are just tests, no artistic intent att all here.

No PP at all, coverted directly from RAW to JPEG (1280) in Elements, without any sharpening. The WM was not my intetion....damn Elements....
Any exposure bloops is my fault, not the camera or lens

This lens is great for its price! I doubt anyone will disagree. If it comes in WR i'll by it!

Range example, 55mm to 300mm F8

@300 F8

@300mm F8 and 67% crop below

@300mm and F5,8 bokeh

@230mm F8 close to near limit
