Thanks Des. Your post is really helpful. I may simply have to use my feet and get closer.
Happy to help Gerald. Getting closer is often the answer!

I see that you already have the 55-300 PLM. That seems to work quite well at the long end on the K-1 in FF mode. Should give you an idea of what 300mm looks like on FF.

Another long option would be the DFA 150-450. By all accounts the resolution is excellent. The downsides are that it is relatively heavy (about 2kg) and expensive.

Have a look at the telephoto lenses thread for more ideas and information: 300mm plus Lens Club: discuss your long lenses - Page 420 -
