Pentax 300 F2.8 -what's it like ?

Anyone have , or have any experience with the pentax 300mm F2.8 ? What's it like, picture quality like ?

I've never seen one in the flesh. Is it a metal body ? I'm assuming it is.

I have a photo buddy who has a Canon 400, F5.6...white body, etc. Cost a few bucks but seems like a great, outdoor wildlife lens.

I've wondered how the 300 mm Pentax compares, aside from the fact that it's 100mm shorter.

Any comments ?
