I can't wait to receive it and shoot it with my G1. It will become a 600mm prime lens.

Did anyone from the group used this lens with any of such cameras? Do you like the results?

If yes, I would LOVE to see the results and hear your opinions on it.

Cheers,

HB

I used to own one many years ago and liked it a lot on my Pentax ME Super. I think you will like it. However the Pentax 300/4 is a bit of a beast and it does not have a tripod mount (depending on the version you got).

I currently have the Nikon 300/4.5 which I like and I just picked up the Pentax 300/6.3 so I can compare them. If I can give up an F stop the Pentax 300/6.3 is much smaller and lighter.

I'd be interested to hear how you like this lens, and maybe see some sample pictures, since I've been thinking of getting the same thing.

I recently bought a Nikkor 300/4.5 ED-IF, which was really nice, but I sold it to raise money for a Panasonic 100-300mm. The Nikkor's probably a better lens, but I'm going to need the flexibility of the zoom for some upcoming trips.

So anyway--I hope the 300 is working out well for you.

Well I have the Lumix 45/200mm already. I wanted to play with a prime 300mm. I will show samples as soon as I get the lens.

That's impressively sharp for hand-held and low light.

some more fresh samples.

Shot with the old/new lens behind our home's office window. We have an active garden.
