Excerpt: It is a prime lens of high quality. Quiet, fast, focus, overall smooth. Everything you would expect for the price. This is a great birding and outdoor lens. The low light usage is limited but logical considering the focal length vs diameter.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is simply the best lens I have ever owned. The clarity and accurate focus is overwhelming. The motor is whisper silent. It is expensive and I really had to think a long time before purchasing a lens that cost more than my first car but worth the money indeed.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Whisper quiet
Excerpt: Living in Western Colorado, I try to get out as often as possible to photograph wildlife. In just a couple of weeks time I have captured the wild horses of the Little Book Cliffs and the bald eagles that have returned to the valley to fish the small streams and rivers. This lens has done a beautiful job of capturing the various wildlife on the western slope. By using the 300mm, I didn't have to get too close to the wild horses, thus disturbing them.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I don't often write reviews for the photo gear I have purchased, but this lens DESERVED a review, and a very high praise one at that.I am primarily a wildlife photographer so I needed a high quality lens that would get me up close to the action without interfering with the wildlife. I primarily photograph marine mammals so it was very important that I could hand-hold the lens that I purchased since having a tripod on a boat is absolutely useless.
Excerpt: This lens is great! Fast auto focus, sharp and accurate. The lens is heavy, but what would you expect in a weather sealed, 300mm lens. You can really reach out and get that impossible shot with this one.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Been using a sigma 170-500 non hsm lens. Finally got the combination right with this purchase.Staying in AUH, donot get many choices for Pentax. Thanks adorama for having such a good variety for pentax.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
