My 55-300 at 300mm ...
1

Snapped a test shot in my home. The first shot is at 55mm just to give you some idea of how far away I was from the subject (about 25 feet). Second shot is at 300mm f/8. The focus point is the first 5 or 6 lines of text on the label.  Camera is K-01.

Looks like a very fine lens (especially for the price) to me!

It really performs well, doesn't it?

That's the sort of experience I am getting. There is another thread on 55-300 vs DA*300 and the shot taken with the 55-300 seems to have camera shake or something........I usually get great sharp shots all across the range. Perhaps this is just another example of difference between lenses still, or different lenses on different cameras.

Yes ... that's why I posted my own shots with the 55-300. Something was definitely wrong with the shot used for comparison with the 300 f/4. The poster came to realize that soon after posting.

........I usually get great sharp shots all across the range. Perhaps this is just another example of difference between lenses still, or different lenses on different cameras.

... or maybe both. Hard to know. I lucked out and got a great sample with my initial purchase.
