thanks a lot for info!

about zoom, i see only:
- sigma 50-500mm
- sigma 150-500mm

tamron has a 200-500mm but not for pentax.


a question: but an heavy lens (70 oz = 2.000 gr) is easy to bring?
or then i must use a tripod?
The Sigma 50-500 should be used at least with a monopod to achieve sharp results. Handheld it will mostly dissapoint - that's at least my experience.

Yes, the older versions were available in Pentax KAF mount, the latest version wasn't. So it is very rare on the used market.

I have a sigma 400/5.6 AP0 manual focus. It has been a great lens, meters with my K10, and film bodies. They can be had for @150 in manual focus.

Here is a film shot converted to jpeg by a local photo lab.
