question

I am going to Indonesia. How will this lens perform compared to my Sigma 18-200mm F3,5-6,3 DC lens, bought in 2008, on my K20D?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Pentax 55-300 will provide a longer zoom range than the Sigma 18-200mm lens. As well, it will have a slightly slower aperture speed. I would advise using both lenses in order to have the option for wide angle images as well as telephoto.

I am going to alaska. How will this perform compared to my pentax 50-200mm F4-5.6 lens on my K20D?
Asked by: Anonymous
These lenses are very similar optically and construction is about the same too.. The biggest difference is the focal length and the 55-300 is a longer zoom lens.

After about a year of use with this lenses, I've noticed a dark halo in the four corners of the image when looking through this lenses. Has any other users experienced this situation?
Asked by: Brenda
That sounds like vignetting from multiple filters stacked on the lens or maybe from the lens hood. If you are getting darkening without a hood and filters on the lens, then the lens has an issue and you might want to contact Pentax for service.
