That's really fast! Well, I'm sure some here would be happy to have this one, and/or the 300/4 in their collections :D

Cheers!

That is great new. But as one of the post in the pentax forum, comparing 200mm/2.8 prime and and the sigma 70-200mm/2.8, which will you choose?

on one hand, weather seal and dust proof.
on the other, flexible zoom and 20mm nearer min focus.

I was deciding between the 200mm and 300mm, but the 200mm seems like the best choice for now!

ask me of course i would choose the Pentax 200 f/2.8. simply because i already have other lens that cover the 70-200mm range:bsmilie: Which lens, that depends on individual lah.;)

Grab both is the best cure.;p After grabbing the 200mm isn't it always the case that the mind still tells you "maybe i need the 300mm also".:bsmilie:

Wow looks like the DA* 200mm is also available in some stores in Japan now! A friend of mine happened to see them well stocked in some of the less popular camera stores!
