I agree totally with you on that, but I guess it is how devoted or how well you want the pictures to be. I have another lens in the the range from 70-300, but quality of pictures and keepers are night and day. I bought the lens for its fast speed. as I was going to be taking smaller cars and trucks in R/C (radio control racing) but that did not happen, so why it only got to go on the camera just a few times.

Took some when I first got it, and had just about 100% keepers of which I could never say with some other lens, so you do get what you pay for.

Just took a look. Cost more than my K5 which puts it out of my price range.
Then again, anything over 100 bucks is out of my price range these days

It is a bigger ticket item, and from what I have seen these do attract a lot of attention but not a lot of buyers.
