UPS just dropped off my new Pentax DA 55-300mm lense, a little after 5:00 PM tonight. I felt like a kid at Christmas waiting for it to arrive! (-:

I went out and grabbed a few shots ASAP. I didn't do any PP on the shots, but I just wanted to share since I'm so excited about my new lense!

Here's the little gem!

1/100s, f/7.1, 55mm, ISO 800

A creek, shot at 55 mm.

1/100s, f/6.2, 55mm, ISO 800

Well you got some sharp shots with it there, most wide open or near wide open.
More evidence of this fine lens performing well at full stretch.

Nice shots!

I just sold my 300 the other day, work related issues.

I miss it already.
