Great character. Yes, I've not been able to coax myself to part with my DAL 55-300mm despite since buying it I have acquired the Sigma 150-500, the DA*300 and the Tamron 18-250!

Great character shot and perfect setting.
Such a versatile lens, the 55-300 !

Super portrait David. I've had more success with the 55-300mm since taking the filter off and using a tripod.

Can we have a look at some of yours Richard? I think, from what I have heard, that they are worth seeing?

Cheers
