Sigma 50-200mm F4-5.6 DC OS


I happened to spot this lens online for what seems a good price. Does anyone have it and if so is it a good lens. On the Lens Review Database there seems to be relatively few reviews.

Would I be better getting this or the Pentax WR version? They tend to go for roughly the same second-hand.

I don't have the Sigma, but from the reviews it looks to be at least on par with the Pentax - which I do have. What I can say of the Pentax is that it's ok, but both my DA 18-135 and DA 55-300 are noticeably better in the overlapping ranges.

The positive things with the DA 50-200 - it's small, lightweight, and WR. The Sigma undoubtedly is more silent and probably faster to focus as well, but it also is bigger and heavier.

Don't know if that was very helpful, though...
