Latest Review Posted HD Pentax-D FA 150-450mm F4.5-5.6 ED DC AW
This lens is built like a tank but it weighs about as much as one too! VERY sharp, at all focal lengths, although did you expect it wouldn't be at that price?!?! Yes, you can "hand hold" it and get some decent shots. I actually found the extra weight seems to stabilize the "micro" movements that I tend to do with much lighter lenses, hand held. It takes some getting used to; and finding your own technique (REMEMBER! Support the lens+body by the lens, NOT the camera body!!!), but pays off nice dividends once you grow accustomed to it. Eat your spinach... this lens isn't intended for those that don't want to work for their shots.

All of these are hand held.

I shot this sparrow through about 3m of heavy brush on AV mode, AF-C, "spot" focus. I was actually quite pleased at how quickly it found the focus point I wanted and stayed there. by oktyabr, on Flickr

Good enough for macro work, in a pinch? by oktyabr, on Flickr
