I was surprised I bought this. I really wanted a 500 mm zoom, but reviews convinced me this would be a good choice. That and not wanting to cart around 2kg on the end of my camera.It is the first prime lens I have bought since a 135 mm one in 1977.How could I have been so silly?
This maybe my favorite lens. The image quality paired with the K1 is amazing. For me this is the perfect walking around lens, I own the DA560 also and it can get heavy when on a monopod and on a 5 mile hike around a wildlife refuge near me but the 300 is so small and light.
I really like this lens. It does so much better in lower light conditions.
I originally bought the Pentax 150-450mm as my primary telephoto, but found it to be inconsistent.So I now have the DA 300mm and boy what a lens, incredibly sharp, not too heavy and can be used on a K1 in FF mode. Highly recommended if you own a Pentax. Buy one, you won't regret it.

So far I have just used this lens for local wildlife. The reviews all said that the autofocus was quick, but I wasn't expecting quite how fast it was, or quiet. The quality of the lens is of the standard I would expect of a Pentax lens - top quality! .

I bought this lens knowing that I was going on safari in Kenya. The results are absolutely amazing, takes photography up to a new level. Photographing animals in low light needs judicious use of a beanbag/tripod as slow shutter speeds are conducive to blurred photographs.
Quick Focus, Sharp Focus
The Pentax 300mm f/4 lens is an excellent telephoto. It's razor sharp and considerably lighter than an aftermarket 300mm f/2.8 telephoto. Unless you absolutely need an extra stop of light gathering ability, this is the prime lens to use. It's an excellent piece of equipment. Highly recommended.
I bought this lens to use in wildlfe photography and sports. Matched with the new Pentax 1.4 teleconverter, the combination delivers excellent results on my K-3. The SDM auto focus is fast and accurate and the image quality is as good as it gets.
I bought this lens for my Pentax K-50, to take pictures of wildlife on our trip to Alaska this summer. Have taken some pictures of a nesting pair of bald eagles near my home in Georgia. The pictures have been great. The lens is well worth the price.
