I am giving this lens 1 star not for it's quality or image quality but for the fact that it will only work with the K3 II, K70, and K1, and even then only after a firmware update.

Every shot is razor sharp (except a few due to operator error), autofocus is super fast and rarely hunts, color rendition is gorgeous, and bokeh is great. I shot a good chunk of a (outdoor) wedding and the entirety of a (outdoor) portrait session with this lens, and I'm very pleased with the...

Everything good can be said about this lens. It is compact and great for hiking and the outdoors. The focus ( Pulse Motor ) is very fast and completely silent...and can be used for video also. The lens has the latest Pentax Coatings.

I purchased this lens for that little bit (or more than double) more of focal reach than my kit 18-135mm along pentax k3. I love to shoot birds and other animals found around our university campus, and I am also looking forward to use it when I go to a tropical country.

I waited to see if the price would come down. Well I couldn't wait any longer so I bought it. Wow what a great lens. I have used the older version and this one is far superior to it. Quiet, quick and clear. I have shot with my Pentax K-5 and Pentax K-50.

I'm very happy with this new 300 lens, the older Pentax 300 was just a bit loud and slow in focusing compared to this one. I updated the firmware on my K-3 and everything seems to work fine. I was a bit disappointed Pentax didn't include a case for the lens tho.

Bottom line- It's an average lens. Images appear fairly sharp although up close images are lacking crisp edges. Color and contrast ok although nothing special. Focus is reasonably quick although don't expect to get birds flying. This is a slow lens so expect to use it in bright light.

I like to do nature but mostly bird photography. You know they are not very cooperative and my old DA 55-300mm lens with the screw drive motor was just too slow. The photos I got were nice and clear when I didn't miss the shot.
