If you just want to extend your range from the kit lens, then either of these is a good choice. The smc 100-300 that I use is very impressive for the price, and I wouldn't hesistate.
Save money for the costly stuff later

And the Sigma 70-300mm is another low cost well respected option here.

resellers.com use to not even take new reviews about these people. i just checked and their rating has come up from 1.4. personally i wouldn't order from them unless it was listed on ebay. they HAVE to watch their FB there.

roy
the reason for no more reviews was that they had been posting fraudulent ratings about themselves.

Hard to pass up for $99, but you've gotta be careful with unkowns and their rep. I picked up the J model at B&H for 129 a couple weeks ago and really like it. It's NOT going to perform like a lens that cost six times as much, but at the same time it's no where near six times poorer, just a tad.

Posted a few pics from it in the pentax forum the other day--> http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=80
