Tamron AF 100-300 f5-6.3. Any comments?

Just wondering if anyone on the forum has any experience with this lens? I can pick this lens up right now new for less than the used price of the Pentax 100-300 or 80-320, so I'm curious as to peoples opinions of it. I realize that it is a little bit slower than the Pentax glass, but if it is a reasonable lens, it will be a cheap way to 'reach out and touch someone'.

Thanks for any feedback,

I had the 80-300 for a day. I bought the sigma 70-300 and the company shipped the tamron. I took a few shots with it and the pics were ok, but the lens felt cheap to me, if that makes sense. The pictures didn't have any wow factor, other than zooming in farther than my 200, but I just didn't like the lens.
I am new to photography, but would recommend the sigma instead, from the research and reviews I encountered.
