Lou - Thanks for the rubberband suggestion. I've just about gotten used to locking the lens after using, but this sounds much better. Thanks!

Just when I thought my mind was made up, the latest issue of Pop. Photo shows up and what's on the front inside cover but an ad for the Sigma 18-250...more to consider since the Sigma offers HSM for Pentax. As you know, HSM = Pentax SDM. Having used SDM lenses, I am a big fan...quick and quiet focusing. Unfortuantely, the lens is not in stock yet at places like B&H, Amazon et al...I thought this was going to be relatively simple decision

I know just what you mean Jelpee,
After using my 20-200mm with the HSM I think I'd be willing to wait.
I switched back to the DA 55-300 for a few shots the other day and boy, I can't believe the difference!
