Yes. Sharp image and nice bokeh from the 16-45.
Thank you Paul! I am definitely enjoying the 16-45. For the price you can get one these days, it's just great. I had the DA 21 for a couple weeks and honestly I don't long for it anymore, I think the 16-45 is just as good. Just not as small and 2/3 stop slower. But the colors in the 16-45 are more "balanced", meaning, I think it actually needs less or no PP for color correction and the images look great straight out of the camera.

Wonderful. Especially if that is a recent picture. Good to see people out and enjoying that area.

Thanks so much. I wish I could say it was recent but it's actually from September. Hopefully people are getting back to normal life there.

Lately these two mallards have been hanging out in puddles that form along the railroad tracks that run a few blocks behind my house. I walk Duke here since they lead to a huge park a few blocks away. I have enjoying using the K50 and 55-300. Much lighter than the K3 + Bigma.

K50 + HD 55-300 WR
This was taken last Saturday during our nice warm spring morning.


A few days later after things warmed up a bit. The ducks seemed happier, I know I was.

More shots with the HD55-300. All are at 300mm hand held while walking my dog.

Robin from last week with the K50 and HD55-300.


Sparrow in a pine tree, K50 and 55-300 again.


Two for one.






I have been trying to catch this dove for awhile now. This one is a heavy crop on the 55-300.

A few with 16-45 at the Booth Museum in Cartersville, GA. Went to check out the Ansel Adams exhibit. Great museum right in my back yard.

K50 with the HD 55-300. Poor lighting, overcast, not enough light, bright white grey background. Lots of PP and cropping, the HD 55-300 handles PF very well.
European Starling @ 300mm cropped.
