Pentax 150-450
Hi all anyone lashed out on one of these?

I thought about it but I think I wouldn't take it with me very often, it's a large, heavy lens. It sure would be nice to have one though. I've found that the 1.7 AFA works better with the DA200 than it does with the 300 on the K1, while it was the opposite with the K5 and K3.

Which lens are you looking at? The Pentax D FA 150-450 is only made for Pentax, so from your question, are you looking at a Sigma lens?

Everything I've seen from the Pentax lens, it looks very good, but I don't think I'm likely to get one. I do think about it, but then I look at how much it weighs and how big it is, and I decide I don't REALLY need that long of a lens.

Hi Harriet, I was just interested in the opinion of others on image quality, relative to the DA300 plus HD1.4 TC. I have finally used that combination at the MotoGP and was very happy, but was hoping it to get some sort of comparison so I can tell myself I don't really need the 150-450.
Thanks Simon
