I've been waiting for the Tamron 70-300 LD Di for some time now (3+ weeks). I just phoned the store today and they won't know until Monday what the status is. I had the DA 50-200 for a short time before deciding on the need for a longer reach, now I'm not so sure I need it and might just get the DA 50-200 again. I'm missing opportunities without having the reach of any type.

On another note, I did find a 3rd alternative but its used and I don't know the condition. The lens is a Pentax FA 70-200 (looks like a big brother to my 50mm 1.4). Its at the same local store I ordered the Tamron from (saw it online). Anyone have knowledge of this lens? It's going for $239 used, where as the DA 50-200 is $199.
