HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE

Some samples shot yesterday with HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE mounted on a K-70, with firmware v. 1.00.

Dragonflies are Trithemis kirbyi, adult male the red one and female the multicolored one. Both have a length dimension of about 32 mm.
Photos with full dragonflies were shot at the minimum focusing distance. To give an idea of the 55-300PLM magnification capability, they are uploaded without any crop, just redimensioned to reduce weight.
Photo showing eyes is a cropped sample of the corresponding full one.

K-70 and 55.300 PLM seem to make a really good couple. Terrific focusing speed and silent operation
Just today I updated K-70 firmware v.1.11, apparently without any problem

Well done! The 55-300PLM is a great lens. I also own it. Although it's not a FF lens I use it with my K-1 in every mode - FF, Square and APSC.
