55-300mm DA L

There is a 55-300mm DA L in the 'For Sale' section here for $195 usd, plus ship. My brother-in-law has the two lens K-X kit, I have borrowed this lens for 'testing' So far, really nice, I like it.

I don't have a 70-300, sorry. My lawyer has a Pentax K100Ds and A Sigma 70-210mm (among others). He showed me some prints from his last vacation taken with this lens, and the prints looked very good. He said he got it on ebay for less than $50.

i ended up going with the Tamron AF 70-30mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens it got good reviews and was super cheap on Amazon. So far shoots great! I'll get a lot of use out of this while I save up for the Pentax lens.

You do mean 70-300mm, right?
