If you'll look at 50-200mm F4-5.6 DC OS HSM - Telephoto Zoom Lenses - SigmaPhoto.com you'll find they claim that "Super Multi-Layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting and assures high image quality throughout the entire zoom range". It seems to be usual Sigma version of SMC...

But why would you prefer this to Pentax own 50-200?

There are a lot of used 50-200 Pentax DAs around, because so many people have replace them with 55-300s, so you might look for one used.

I have the DA55x300 Paul, I just want to add to my goodie bag. I will look here on the forum for the for sale threads, you can never have to much glass. Next is real wide angle the 10x17 looks good. Just a little fun box that I am building to store all my lenses in that has wheels on it. You never now where you might go and need more then you can carry. Have fun everyone!
