I have not used the new version but with the K5 this lens is fast enough for me. I have used it to take pictures of car races several times and I am very happy with the results

I think it also depends on the camera body but as I said it is a very capable lens (at least for me). The image quality is also superb.

I have a 70-200 apo ex dg not macro . On a k10d with a cat eye .at 70mm setting when I use my auto focus at 6ft my line is showing its off and it is .by 3 inches to far away . I know this because I set a box with words back 3 inch and focus on the box in front and the box in front is out of focus but the box behind is in good focus and im focusing in the center of the front box. Whence put it in manual focus and I line up my cat eye the picture is perfect. But if I zoom to 200mm in auto it works perfect. Close or far away. I JUST got the lens and i haven't tryed other mm settings .is being out of focus at 70mm setting in auto focus and in focus at 200 normal if not whats wrong with my lens and is it fixable. Thanks.
