I am an amateur photographer. I use the lens with my K 50. It has produced great pictures. I highly recommend the lens. I use it for taking sports and wildlife photo.
I purchased this lens in November 2016. I've used it for maybe 100 shots. All of a sudden the lock button has failed. Unfortunately, Ricoh USA's only authorized repair center doesn't even list this lens as a repair option, sending you on an endless loop of "contact us" pages.
Very compact and portable telephoto lens. I'm happy with how fast it focuses.The pictures are terrific.
If you have a Pentax that supports this lens, it's killer. Not all Pentax cameras support adjusting the aperture from the camera on this lens and there is no way to set the aperture manually from the lens. I'm using it with a K-70 and it's sorta amazing. Very sharp.
HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Lens:I have been shooting pictures for over 50 years and have used many camera brands and formats, and Pentax has been a mainstay for me.
Just used at Kruger National Park, and the lens performed beautifully. Focus is quick and quiet with no hunting; images are sharp throughout the focal range, even at 300mm in good light. Weather sealing was a bonus in dusty conditions.
This is a great lens, currently I am using this as my primary daily lens, and so far it's been flawless. I have been using this with my K-70 and so far it's been flawless, images are sharp and the focusing speed is very fast (and it's silent when focusing too!
One of the sharpest zoom lens in the Pentax lineup. The 0.3x macro is an added bonus.
Great lens, fopcueses almost too fast. If you are following something moving hold your focus lock button
Great lens it is perfect for wild life photography. And a great price
