Default Just Got My New Lens

Just had it deleivered, Amazon UK were doing a deal on the DA 55-300mm, 135 instead of the usual 269 so i could not resist.

Had to try it out but as the light was fading quickly I only managed couple in the front garden. Will do better tommorow.

Both taken at ISO1600

You made a great choice as that lens is an excellent performer. I really love mine and it is my go to for long even above my 170-500 Sigma.
Shot this one a couple of years ago @ 300mm 5.6 and 400 iso in very low light with my K10. We were in the end zone about 40 yards from the action. It is cropped some and EV push.

Looks good. The plus to me is the weight savings over the 170-500.
