Hello from the Netherlands

Hi Everyone,

('m Not good at English. But i will try)
I'm using Pentax dSLR's for about eight years i think. First a K100D and the last a K-5. I shoot mostly nature. That's why i'm so enthousiast to go to South-Africa this year. The DA*300 is over my budget (1300 in the Netherlands right now), so i bought a DA 55-300mm. And maybe I will buy a Tamron 70-200mm 2.8, for those moments when it is darker.
At 300mm it's a little soft when i compare it with my other lenses. But it is usable i think:

Thank you for this informative forum.

Kind Regards,

Welcome aboard! The 55-300 is probably the best long zoom in that price range, mine has performed pretty well. Most mistakes are mine, not the lens!
Welcome from the Chicago area!
