Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-DA* 300mm F4 ED [IF] SDM
Few lenses have impressed me as much as this one. Not only does the lens itself feel like a machined masterpiece when holding it, but it is capable of producing images at a quality that few other lenses can produce. I would rank this #1 out of all of the lenses I've ever used as far as the quality of image you get straight out of the camera without any post processing... this one has the magic pixie dust that is mentioned from time to time. I would even rank this above the FA 77 as far as overall optics go. That being said, it is big and heavy and has slow AF... I almost always used manual focus as I found it very nice to use and it saved a lot of frustration. Bokeh is incredibly beautiful, like an oil painting... even when shot wide open. Here are some of my favorite photos taken with the Pentax DA* 300mm: Red Leaves Portrait at North Park by James Baron, on Flickr Fall Foliage III Leaf Portrait by James Baron, on Flickr Fall Sunset Silhouette
