K-1?

I currently have the Pentax 50-135mm lens and the K-1. My question is: if I were to sell it for the 55-300mm PLM would I loose or gain something in terms of reach? Back when I had my K-3ll and the PLM I was impressed with its fast-lock in on focus.

Re: K-1?

Tom if you put your K1 in crop mode you will gain a lot of reach with the plm.

55-300 PLM can be used nearer to 300 in Square crop , which is better than the APSC in Pixel count !

I'm assuming it needs to be in crop mode for the whole range ? So it will be like an 80-450.  If works OK in FF mode for some or all of the range then there are other options.
