    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.

    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
