Default Shortest 300mmF4

I have been lazy in bringing out my manual lens. And this one is kind of a legend within Pentax camp (A300mmF4) for being the "best lightweight hand-holdable long telephoto there is in all of God's creation."


Exif from HTC Maple 852







Took it out today for some ready and obnoxious subject always around my house

Definitely a brilliant lens. I still have mine though I don't use it much any more since I have the DA*300. It's just that the DA is about twice the size and weight, so I can't quite part with the A.

I am still trying to get my hands on a M, A or even A* 300/4, I haven't got any good glass longer than my K135/2.5 so I think this would be a great lens for the tele end.

Oh well... one day I'll be lucky

When I get serious about collecting camera lens I'll get a bank loan and buy one!
