I preferred the Pentax in each case. It's odd that the 50-200mm has such a bad rep.
It had a *great* rep until photozone (?) trashed it. I still love mine.

Funny how those things work, isn't it...I do still really like my 50-200 also, although (a) it doesn't get all that much use personally, and (b) I would have loved to have been a couple of years behind and been able to purchase the Pentax 55-300mm lens instead. As it stands, it is hard for me to justify the purchase of the 55-300.

I'm not too happy with the PhotoZone review of the 55-300 either. It's a better lens than their tests show.

I too don't actually use my 50-200 all that much any more. I'm much more likely to want to have my M100 or M135 with me. So actually, I'm kind of glad I did get the 50-200 when I did, because I might have been tempted to spend twice as much on the 55-300 and ended up with a more expensive lens I liked but didn't actually use all that much.
