Pentax KP. No post-processing.
Which model? The 55-300 has a reputation for being a solid performer.
I've had mine for about a year now and it stays pretty much welded on either my K-70 or K3iii when I'm outdoors. I also have one of the older SMC DAL ED versions and it's been a solid performer for years.

I love my PLM 55-300! It stays with me. So much goodness in a compact, lightweight WR package.
It's not as sharp or as fast as the f4.0 60-250 SMCP lens, but at almost one-quarter of the price, it's a remarkably good performer.

Yep. You can pretty much leave it on your camera, and you have most shots covered.

Nice shot. The colours just pop. Were the flowers in the wild or your backyard?
