another shot with 55-300mm
Nice shots Mr. Wizard. I wonder if you would include the focal length for each picture you shoot, I'm always curious about that with zooms.

This lens is absolutely outstanding for the money. To be fair, I have the DA-L version, but it has the same optical formula.

It is a good lens, just that for some reason I do not really like it. Too big, too bulky, too long, not WR - I don't really know why ...














and more here ...

Fantastic nature shots here !

I think this is the maximum when shooting to the sun without ND filter !

1/8000 F32 80 ISO 300mm

55-300

Right, this is just a cheap lens and that's it. Do not expect much from it just learn where it works. The biggest disadvantage - not good while shooting against the sun light - use 70mm ltd instead and rock on

F6.3 300mm - the sharpness above 240mm is not great, if you want to, then use F8.0 or higher

F5.6 210mm - OK

F4.0 107.5mm - very good

F8.0 170mm - a killer
