I believe you're right regarding CAs.
Anyway, the Sigma costs approx $1.300 USD.
If you're lucky you can get the M* 300 for $300-400 USD.

Kind regards
Hi Lars

I have never seen an M* selling for such a low sum. It is very rare and more a collector's item, than say the A*300. But that is nevertheless at least as expensive. When I bought mine in good condition (not LN) I payed around 600 USD. I even sold my old K300 lately for around 350 USD...

I can recommend the SMC Pentax-A* 300mm F4 version

The only downside is that its a slow lens at F4.
F4 isn't considered slow for a 300mm lens. There are faster lenses but they are very large and heavy and cost more than decent used car.
