I was just lookin thru the Pentaxforum lense database about Telephoto lens. The Pentax 200-600mm has good ratings. :bsmilie:

Sigma Sg cant order for u?

Thanks bro. Good rating no use if cannot get the lens. :sweatsm:


Only found this one. The 500mm also dun have pentax mount.

Try calling Shasinki la.

I would prefer the 150-500 over this 50-500mm lens.
For this lens there's no issue on stock availability, Adorama has it & I think it's better to get from them than from Shasinki as Adorama is giving 1yr Intl + 2yr USA warranty.

But then I still prefer the 500mm F4.5 :lovegrin:

Did you try OP and Alan Photo at SLS?
I remember vaguely seeing a long focal length sigma lens at OP sometime back. Maybe you can call and ask? :)

But I read somwhere in the third party lens thread that 50-500 is better at controlling CA than 150-500? or is it the other way round? :confused:

Thanks Richard.
I've called OP b4, no.
Didn't call AP as some time ago I asked about DA*300, they said they don't sell Pentax lens. :eek:

I've tried the Sigma 500mm on a Nikon and it is very, very good.
But you definitely need to use it with a monopod or tripod.

Yes, I've read good comments of this lens. :cool:
Definitely I'll need to use tripod for this 3.1kg heavy lens. I'll be getting a gimbal head or at least a side kick. ;)
