Congra on the new K20D. That Tamron 70-300mm takes pretty good close up product shot

Here are some of my K10d taken with the K20d. The 55-300 doesnt perform as well in lower light at closer range but it did a pretty good job.

This photo is so good I'm using it as a wallpaper on my cell phone
Congratulations on your K20!

Do you have any more comments on the 55-300?
Considering one for myself, mostly for outside and some night shooting.

I posted a short compariston between my 55-300 and my tamron 70-300 both on the K10d and the K20d.

In both cases I tested outdoor at identical conditions/settings at 300mm. The 55-300 was MUCH sharper and have better color rendition. ON the K20d this lens is incredible when compared to the images produced by this lens and the K10d. However. under lower light ie indoors where I was trying to take shots at 300mm at the closest range possible ... the tamron did better. however this is what a true macro is better for. Overall I think that the 55-300 is an awesome lens and worth it!

Sweet! I just received the AF360 flash unit, my Pentax DA* 16-50, and my Sigma 105 Macro F2.8

These were taken on the K10d with the new Sigma Macro of the new DA* lens

After a good week this this camera I think that it is wonderful and a good upgrade from the K10d. I posted some photos. the combo of this body and the DA 50-135 is incredible! the ISO is definitely a good amount better than the K10d though occasionally grain does show up. Overall Im am VERY happy that I got this camera and now I have two great cameras to play with!
