Here's one from a recent walk through one of the town's parks with the DA*300/4. I love this lens.

Too many to choose from. The DA*300 is on the camera 70% of the time. Some common birds




The surprise of its close focus:


and with 31mm extension tube

New DA 300mm and K-5 II

First shots from my new toy (since yesterday): first one is a crop scaled to 50%, second one a 100% crop. I'm duly impressed!

I needed to revive this thread with new info for the Pentax K-1

I was browsing thru the 1678 photos I had taken at the Rogers Cup IN montreal 3 weeks ago... and I am really impressed on the IQ of the combo Pentax K-1 and SMC Pentax-DA* 300mm f4 ED [IF] SDM was able to render in the image.

For example, have a close look at this photo of Denis Shapovalov doing a serve.
It was shot in relatively low light conditions, and from the 3rd level in the Uniprix Stadium (I was maybe 100 meters from the subject).


Denis Shapovalov


Now, have a look at the next photo I published. It is a 1:1 crop (696 x696 pixels ) of the tennis ball, where we can clearly see the text "Penn ATP 3" and some bristly hairs around the tennis ball.


Denis Shapovalov

Please also note that this was shot wide-open at ƒ/4, 1/800s and 3200 ISO, and that this photo is direct from the camera body (RAW), no PP at all!.

Photo taken at Rogers Cup 2017 in Montreal (2017.08.11)
