Re: DA*300 F4 as a backyard butterfly lens

It's a good general wildlife lens as you've shown here and in your backyard birds thread. I use it as a general walkaround wildlife lens, for animals, birds, butterflies and dragonflies. It is a shame that Pentax don't recognise it's usefulness in capturing butterflies and dragonflies by providing us with auto extension tubes. I have some old extension tubes that pass aperture info and a 25mm extension tube that also works with AF (however it's not very well built), these help for butterflies and dragonflies. An AF set from Pentax would make a good lens great, IMHO.
