SIGMA 100-300/4 APO EX DG at KEH

This amazing lens in EX condition is still available for $999.
Pentax Autofocus 100-300 F4 SIGMA APO EX DG (82) WITH HOOD, CAPS, CASE, DIGITAL SLR ZOOM TELEPHOTO LENS - KEH.com
I used to have both of them: EX and EX DG versions.
Highly recommended,
Good luck.

Argh! I really want this lens but just can't swing it right now. I'm still recovering from the dent my Limited purchases put in my pocketbook. If I'd seen this a year ago before getting into primes I'd have snagged it up. I don't picture myself using this long of a focal length often anyway but for the times that it'd be desirable I'd love to have the option.

Great lens, way overpriced in Pentax mount - these can be had for $500~$600 in canon and Nikon mounts regularly (not taking anything away from the lens, just the price of it in pentax mount is sort of ridiculous).

Unfortunately, all good 3rd party glass is at least 1.5-2 times more expensive in Pentax mount. However, this lens is very desirable by many and rare. I'm very surprised that nobody has not snitched it yet. BTW: AF is not loud and very fast.

They had a FA* 300 f4.5 last week as well. Had to sit on my hands.

I have FA*300/4.5 and it is superior to the Sigma. I did not keep two Sigmas 100-300/4 because of FA*300 and DA*60-250 I already had at that time. The 100-300/4 is a great lens, but for some reason it did not withstand aggressive cropping as good as FA*300/4.5, when paired with 1.4X TC (I tried both EX and EX DG Sigmas 1.4X and Tamron 1.4X Pz-AF TCs).
The strange thing is that it took a day after I posted about lens availability on both Pentax forums for someone to buy the 100-300/4. Maybe it was not even a Pentax forums member.
Anyway, nice shooting with this fantastic lens to this person!
