Well.........I did it.

I bit the bullet and picked out a new lens. Once again thanks for the advice people have been giving me. I looked around for reliablity and decided to stick with the pentax 50-200mm. There were good reviews and it seemed most people found it to be a good lens.

Were others happy with this lens?

thanks, justin

excellent choice. I have been pleasantly surprised by mine- very sharp, at least it seems so to me.

Ditto again. Mine seems sharp to me and It if I am going somewhere that I have to get the shot. It is in the bag. My daughter had a school Halloween parade and out of all my lenses I knew the DA 50-200 would not fail me. I covers good portrait length and some zoom if you need it...

You are gonna really like this lens.

I have that lens also and am very pleased with the performance. Coupled with my DA 16-45 I am a happy picture taker.
