One Lens - SMC Pentax-FA J 75-300mm AL f/4.5-5.8

Continuing my occasional project of using one lens, today it's the turn of the SMC Pentax-FA J 75-300mm. The Pentax J series were the first from Pentax to remove the aperture ring and were introduced for the *ist film camera and then of course the *istD, the first Pentax DSLR. They are full frame and when SRS Microsystems found a stock of brand new lenses that they could sell off at less than 120 it was a bargain too good to miss. The 75-300mm sits well with the K-1 full frame DSLR but today we unite it with the APS-C K-3 II as we take advantage of Martin Mere WWT being open again.

The day is fine, skies are blue, so here we go:

The verdict is a very usable lens with very nice rendering and lovely bokeh. At the price paid, absiolutely unbeatable.
