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.
It's a pretty good lens but the pentax 60/250 is much much better. I find the 55/300 is works best at about 200mm then after that the quality really drops off
Does not work with K-S2! Bad purchase since the information was misleading!
I have not used it an awful lot, so far, but I believe it is a well made lens! The pics are as awesome as it gets!
This lens is so clear and sharp image after image after image! I would recommend this to anyone who shoots wildlife especially! The range is phenomenal!! I have not had a shot that has not been anything but amazing!! The colors are absolutely incredible!
I don't use long lenses very much, but this has a useful range starting at 55mm. It's light in weight, and sharp. There is a locking button which stops the lens expanding and the camera taking pictures, so you have to remember to press it, even when shooting at its widest.
Great lens! Love using it now that I know how. Really AWFUL 'instruction' booklet. There has got to be more information with each lens. Some of us aren't professionals and a one page flyer inside the box does not cut it. Even a web site with additional instructions would help.
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.
What a lens! Incredibly quick to focus and just about totally silent. I've had this for eight months now and it's a delight to use and is my standard 'go to' lens. Have a look at Pentaxforums.com for an in depth review.
