  • Excerpt: One of Pentax's top rated DA* ("DA star") lenses, and a stablemate to the well-reviewed 200mm f/2.8, this 450mm equivalent ($1,300 street) is a digital-only prime for APS-sensored DSLRs. It incorporates O-rings and gaskets to repel moisture and dust, Pentax's "Super Protective" SP coating that makes easy work of removing front-element smudges, and extra-low-dispersion glass for added sharpness.

Pentax SMC DA* 300mm f/4 ED [IF] SDM - Review / Test Report

20 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA* 300mm f/4 ED [IF] SDM is highly desirable lens for sports and wildlife photographers. The performance is generally impressive but you expect no less from a professional grade DA* lens. In terms of resolution and contrast the lens is able to produce very good results straight from the max. aperture setting. The level of distortions is negligible and vignetting and lateral chromatic aberrations (CAs) are not field-relevant either.
