I got my 55-300 Pentax last Thursday. Apparently I'm the first in my town to get one. Mine was in stock at the dealer since late April and now there are two more in stock at the dealer.

I have only taken about 5-7 shots with it ....a couple of a wild rabbit, couple of birds, my mailbox.

So far....it's very sharp, colour rendition is great, even during the cloudy day, the focus is about as noisy as my Pentax 16-45...it focuses quickly.

I'm a happy camper.

I think I have all I need for my purposes:
  • 16-45 Pentax[/*]
  • 55-300 Pentax[/*]
  • 35-105 macro 'A' Pentax....my old zoom, I bought new in '84[/*]
  • K10D body[/*]
  • 360 Pentax lens[/*]
  • 50 Takumar macro
    [/*]

I understand why you're happy. You've got a pretty good coverage with HQ zooms. My brother-in-law has a 35–105 and I envy him for that, it's a legendary lens. Let us se some pictures from the 55–300!

But what lens is the 360 Pentax lens? Or do you actually have 360 different ones?:O

I should of said Pentax 360 flash. As far as posting some pictures from the 55-300, I'm not too computer literate and I'm not sure of the process. In addition I'll have to take some decent :-) pictures first, that would be worthy of posting.

I ordered the 55-300 to go with my wife's brand new K-200D, but naturally,the lens isback-ordered. No idea when it will arrive, but right now she's so busy trying to finish up the school year, she doesn't have time to take any photos anyway. I hope that changes in another week or so.

I'll be interested in seeing any shots you take with the 55-300.
