Comments about Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX DG Lens for Pentax:

I spent the weekend working with the new lens. It is fast in auto focus and I didn't miss a shot when trying to photograph snow geese! Wish I had bought the doubler for it.

Comments about Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX DG Lens for Pentax:

This lens was purchased because I needed a long, low light lens and pentax offers nothing at this focal length with a constant f/2.8 aperature. So far I have used this lens mostly for photographing wildlife. I have to say I like everything about this lens. It's built like a tank. The lens hood is easily removable and is stored inverted on the lens. This lens uses drop in filters and a CPL is included. The whole thing comes packed in a padded nylon carrying case with a vibration spacer. Ok, it's packed nice and it looks great but how does it perform? The photos I shot with my K20D were razor sharp even at 100% crop. I was very pleasantly suprised on just how sharp this lens is. I am totally happy with this purchase.

Not what I expected...

Comments about Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX DG Lens for Pentax:

This wasn't what I expected.

It's even better!!! The AF is very fast on my K10D compared to my Sigma 50-500. It's much much sharper, even with a 1.4 TC. I highly recommend this lens.

The only bad things about it is the weight and the cost. Then again, this kind of lens needs a monpod, or better yet, a Berlebach wooden tripod with appropriate head.
