Still delivering after all these years
19

I'm just about to celebrate 8 years since I purchased the wonderful DA*300. It has been on K5, K3, and K3II bodies and I have trusted it to deliver almost all of my bird and wildlife images to those sensors. This lens continues to deliver. Late this afternoon I went to a Dallas park to see if the Barred Owl pair have started hanging around the nest tree. I found one of them waiting for sunset about 20 yards from the nest tree.

Since she is sitting up there calmly looking at me and then looking around, I know I'm not too close to bother her. Nearby was a small group of White Pelicans
