SMC PENTAX DA STAR 300MM F4 ED(IF) SDMThis page is a collection of photo samples taken with the Pentax smc DA* 300mm f/4 ED (IF) SDM, plus related image galleries, user pictures and other examples that I’ve come across in forums, online communities, blogs and related websites.

This should help in determining if the image quality of the P-DA 300/4 SDM meets your expectations.

Bear in mind that the majority of these photos are re-sized, and may have gone through post-processing, retouching or other edits. I just thought that it would be interesting to see, at a glance, what SMC PENTAX DA STAR 300MM F4 ED(IF) SDM owners and users are shooting with their lens.

Full-sized images, where available, will assist with judging the image quality.

DA 300* Osprey Series

Dale Doram has shared three images photographed with the DA 300/4 lens mounted on a Pentax K20D Digital SLR Camera in this forum thread.

He remarks that the DA 300 focuses faster, and is much lighter, when compared vs. the Sigma 50-500mm (Pentax mount) lens.
