There are many occasions, including most overseas trips, where I wouldn't carry my 150-450 because of weight or size. However, the 55-300 is an easy and effective option to throw in the bag with the K3.

If I'm taking the K1 on the other hand, I rarely pack the 55-300, though I sometimes think about it. Maybe I should use it on FF more often, perhaps in 1x1 mode.

To me, the DA 55-300 has a slightly different look to the 150-450. The colours are little more muted, and of course it's not quite as sharp. However, it's actually a very attractive look. I couldn't imagine getting rid of it.
