If you are interested in Series 1 zoom with MF, which I think can do well as compared to all of your lens stated. You know you can PM me for a good price for past customers:

The Komine copy is for sale in Marketplace and I am withdrawing the fine lens for myself. but next one up is the Tokina, which I like very much. You can PM me for a friend's price. I bought way too many, my miseries are someone's else fortune.

Out of that list, I've used the F70-210, the Tamron version of the 18-250, and the DA55-300. All are fine lenses, although my favorite, which I still have, is the DA55-300. With the combination of IQ and weight, the 55-300 is the best deal.

HTH,

I have both.

While the DA 50-200 is a nice lens, I much prefer the DA 55-300...
the 55-300 is the best?

Sigma or tamron 70-200 f2.8 is expensive and heavy

Can't say the 55-300 is the "best", but I can say that when paired with a K20D, it is capable of producing many pleasant surprises.
