      Comments about Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM for Pentax:

      I have only used this lense once shooting action at an indoor swim meet, but the pictures are excellent and crisp. They would be better if I paired it with a better camera. I currently have it attached to a Pentax istD which is only partially compatible and does not support very fast ISO settings (3200 top). I think I will upgrade the camera body next and should result in nearly professional grade shots.
