Nice shots! I especially like the first one. I have that same lens and I've been quite pleased with it.

So they do actually still produce the 70-300mm?....

which is infinately better than the budget Tamron 75-300

A really cut corner lens... in both macro capability and otherwise.


What does the the 70-300mm cost now?... as the poor 75-300mm is on par cost with the Sigma 70-300mm (comp with the Tamron 70-300mm in ability at lower cost)

They still sell the lens but a newer Di version of what I have. I also have it for my Nikon D200 for shooting soccer and found it to be up to the task so I believe this newer version would serve well for Pentax as well.

i just ordered the 70-300 on amazon, and it was the last one they had in stock until their next delivery came in, but i know other places have them too. should get mine tomorrow, and after i try it out ill get some pictures posted!

*since it's AF, what if i turn on the AF on my k100d and on the lense? will they fight?
