Ahoy!

Not mine, but it's on the Park Cameras used items list at their Burgess Hill branch for 599.00 (I don't know if that's good, bad or average).

See here. There may be more at their London store.

Might be worth bookmarking for future reference.

That's a bargain if the lens is in good nick. Anyone looking for a copy of this stellar lens should take a look.

If only the kids didn't expect me to waste all my money taking them on holiday again in 2 weeks - it would be mine!

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Carl, sell the kids at the end of the holiday, then buy the lens. The kids will get to go on holiday and you get the lens. Lol.

Hi,

I've just bought it. I'll have a well used SMC DA 55 - 300 F4 to F5.8 to sell shortly. Case but no box, a little internal dust if someone wants to message a cheeky offer first. Also a new F2.4 35mm DAL with rubber hood that will have to go too.

That's life when you don't have the funds.

300* F4 lens arrived it's a beauty. Scuff from use on tripod mount, lens immaculate. My first star lens, I can just hear the internal focusing. No one told me the motor was silent!!! Must replace my noisy (!) 18 - 135 DC motor lens now when funds allow.

Thank, long overdue. I need to save up for the 1.4 teleconverter now.

First time I got a SDM lens I thought it was broken, I was so used to screw drive and when I pressed the AF button and heard nothing I was panicking for a bit.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Looking forward to the pics Bill. It's a cracking wildlife lens. I have the 1.4x converter which is great but you can crop the hell out of the DA* !

+1 from me too, the DA*300 is the best lens I've ever owned and is rarely off my K-3 nowadays.
