50-135 or 50-150

I am gonna get one of this lens soon, does anybody has any experience in this 2 lens ? The Sigma has extra 15mm at the tele end but will AF micro adjustment be supported ? Any comments on sharpness, AF speed and accuracy etc.

Not going to be much help, as I haven't used either, but from what I've seen/read, really would go with the Pentax. I've just heard too many complaints to even think of buying a Sigma.

If you need more reach, there's also the 70-200mm tamron.

One of our members did a head to head, though the Sigma is on a Nikon body.

Have a look here:

I'm happy with my DA* 50-135. It's sharp, produces great colour, constant 2.8, SDM, water proof and a decent price compared to the competition.
