How fast focus in 55-300mm any better new lenses what reach 300mm ?

How fast focus in 55-300mm any better new lenses what reach 300mm ? i mean same price range,somehow i know image quality is not best possbile but in cheap lenses is very rare thing . i ask becouse i sometimes i pentax cameras. even still here (finland) its little? more complicated get lenses for them than for nikon or canon... but vibration reduction (if work even 50mm/f1.7 type lens),good finders are reasons why i even think and i understanded picture quality is better than competior. but in this area differencies are smaller. ps. currently i use nikon stuff but i have some problems. and idea about high apture lens with vibration reduction sounds nice...

Please do a searhc of this forum to see the dozens of previous threads on the topic. And no, there have not been any new lenses released for Pentax since the last such thread a few days ago.

Focus speed is similar to other lenses of that size - not as fast as smaller lenses, faster than larger ones.

All the threads about the Pextax 55-300 and similar lenses seem to agree that the Pentax is the superior lens for anything up to that price.
