I have the sigma dg 70-300mm f4 - 5.6 macro - its a pretty good lens over all. (versatile with the macro being quite good)

I was going to sell it eventually.... when i'm ready to get a DA*300 I guess I could let it go. (except I see you already got one

I recently bought a SMC Pentax-FA 100-300mm F4.7-5.8 for about 60USD.
I've just had a bit of a play with it so far, but liking the results.
Good at 300mm.

Some pics I took yesterday.

This is at 300mm

Thanks guys!

I know the 55-300 and I which I could buy it, I really do. But my budget doesn't allow me to spend $350 on a lens.

Any other idea for a cheaper lens?
I could sell you mine - an excellent copy - for $250 plus shipping. PM if you're interested.
