Joe; your images with the K3 and the Pentax 55-300 are amazing! These really have my hopes up, as I'm getting the K3 shortly, and have really liked my DA55-300 with my K10D; so I can't wait to see it with the new K3!

Thanks so much for posting these, so many people do not think the 55-300 is a capable lens, like what you have posted here!

Normhead,

Sure, I'm just across the lake.
Ah, you're in Rochester. A place I've ever been but thought about. When I went to Ryerson Polytechnical in Photo Arts, it was still basically a technical institute, now it's a university. So if I wanted my BA in Photography, Rochester was the place to go. You could do your 3 years at Ryerson and get a couple years of credit.

Or, keep what you've got until you get what you want.

Nice shooting Norm, for right now I'm stuck with a Sigma 50-500 for the time being. I'd rather shoot with what I can afford than wait years for what I can not.

Nice. A flash extender is probably the best improvement available for the money.

Taken with my new 16-85. Dare I say that it's pin-point sharp?

Ouch!!! Yeah, that's sharp!

I think this will be my first glass upgrade next year to go with my soon to be K3.

How would this lens work for astrophotography?

I was in Pittsburgh over the weekend and was very fortunate to get to see a foggy sunrise from the North Shore Riverwalk near PNC Park. This was taken with the DA 15 Ltd.

Wonderful moody AM shot. Not the kind you can get by deciding you want it.
