Item Location
Philadelphia (United States)

Item Description
I accidentally won this lens about six months ago; I was expecting to get out bid, but I ended up winning it, and I've come to realize that despite it's great image quality, it's a bit more lens than I need. I think I'm going to stick with the 55-300 due to it being lighter and able to zoom out. The outside of the lens is a little scratched, as you can see in the pictures, but the glass is clean without any haze or fungus. The aperture blades are also quick and snappy, and I've had no problems using the lens with my K30.

If I did not have my DA*300/4 ... I'd go for it!

Clearly all the people saying how much they love their current FA* 300 should buy a second one

I have the Pentax F*300/4.5. What do I gain if I purchase this one and sell the F*? Anyone knows? I heard they are about the same, but I think they may not be exactly the same. BTW, I love my F*.

My understanding is that it's the same optical formula, but you lose the tripod foot and gain the totally awesome silver color. I think I read somewhere that the camera select optimal apertures to use on FA but not F lenses or something.
