Comments about Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG OS Lens for Pentax Digital Cameras:

I needed a good zoom and after a lot of research I bought this lens. It's a bit on the heavy side but it's a big chunk of glass. Since I use a Pentax k-5 I don't use the OS to much - it drains the battery quickly. Seems to get the same results except in low light - OS performs better. AF is very quick for a screw drive and I'm happy with it. Zoom creep is very apparent in manual focus but not noticeable with AF engaged but the lens is very new. I think a lens band will be necessary in the near future to protect the AF drive. Over all I am very pleased with this lens, for a zoom it's very sharp with good contrast and resolution. Obviously not an DA* lens which are far to expensive for my budget anyway.

Comments about Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG OS Lens for Pentax Digital Cameras:

Special applications in exits of field and works of photograph of the nature. He is not heavy to work by hand free.
I like to work with him for anxious, aloof or dangerous animal takings since she allows prudent distances.
It is a good complement for an objective 18-70 or 28-70
