I recently acquired a DA*300 but work and weather have combined to limit the time I've had to give it a decent work out (I did check to make sure it focused on infinity though

First impressions.....WOW!!!!

This shot was taken hand held through my dirty office window, 1/1000sec @ f4, ISO 100
(do you have better view from your office seat )..........



This is approx. 100% crop of the above image.........


The electricity pylon is over 3 kilometres away....



Another quick capture from today (approx. 25% crop), a grey murky day here on the north east coast........



I don't think I need to worry about saving for any future pentax FF camera, this one will do me nicely for a good while to come, I just have to decide if the new 1.4x AW converter makes my Sigma 150-500 OS redundant
Cheers

LBA is good for you, a Lens a day helps you work, rest and play.

I have used mine with a A 2xS converter and that really does pull in the distant objects.

I don't have a better view my office window but I can watch some of the planes overhead coming and going from Hawarden airport
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.
