The Telephoto lens to get!The Pentax SMC DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED is a viable choice when it comes to an affordable long range telephoto lens. This lens is very compact and lightweight for its focal range. The build quality is decent with a metal mount and has manual override on the focus. It is very sharp with good color contrast. I have used it from Newfoundland to Florida. I do wish it had 'macro' capability. It is an awesome lens for the price.
