I have been a pro shooter for almost 40 years, and am a lifelong Pentaxian. I have owned many Pentax lenses, and recently upgraded my old "Green Star" 300 f/4 to this lens. It is simply stunning, and one of the sharpest lenses I have ever shot with. Nearly flawless.
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 have been increasingly interested in capturing images of birds lately. I love my 70-200 DFA and 150-450 DFA, but this lens has upped the ante significantly. Its quick to follow focus and the image quality is simply excellent!
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.
This is the first Pentax star lens I bought and I really love the lens. The lens is extremely sharp and auto-focus is very fast in my modest K-50. I am not a pro and just an enthusiast.
My first big lens and I love it. Sharp photos, quiet focus. Really happy with it.
an excellent lens, durable, sharp with great rendering and image quality. A bit slow to focus in dim conditions with a K1 but no other 'cons'.
Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
I had this lens for 9 years now and it never ceases to amaze me. It was excellent on APS sensors, it's just as good on full frame. The AF is reasonably fast and precise and it never needed adjustments on any of my bodies.
Mainly bird photography. Very heavy but that is the price you pay for rugged build.Expensive now but got mine new for £680!A bargain.

I've had this lens for 6 years. I use it for bird and wildlife photography. It produces a beautiful sharp image which is very useful when cropping is necessary as image quality remains high in any resulting enlargement.
