Summary: Nice lens. Smooth zoom. Construction looks and feels solid. Good image quality for a long zoom. This lens is VERY loud. I almost returned it due to the noise alone but I decided not to when considering cost, quality and other lens in this price range.

Summary: It is well made and VERY sharp. Wish it had a fast lens and wish it did 18 to 300. That would make it the perfect all round lens. I sent it back because it can only focus about 5 to 6 feet away from the object.
Summary: I bought the lens because it was weather resistant but the lens was just not up to par when it came to sharpness it's just an average lens especially at 300 millimetres which was the most important for me
Summary: I was quite happy with my Pentax 55-300 lens until I had it in a padded camera backpack, the backpack slipped off my shoulders and landed on the ground and when I opened it, my lens was barely hanging onto the body of my KX.
Summary: It's a great versatile lens, but when on full zoom (300mm) it looks as if it's focused, and the focus light comes on with my Pentax K-7, but once photos are downloaded, the subject is slightly out of focus. This is under good lighting conditions.
Summary: El objetivo resultan bastante nítido con el diafragma cerrado al f/8. Relativamente robusto sin resultar muy pesado. El enfoque es lento y hace ruido (por tornillo, no ultrasónico). Complicado ponerle la tapa con el parasol puesto, pero tiene una pestaña desmontable para ajuste de filtros.
