Ah PS: I bought a Tamron 80-210mm for Au$110 bran new in box and all and absolutely love it, but, at 210mm it's not so sharp, I tried some moon shots and you can't get a sharp circumference as I could with my Sigma 80-200mm manual focus lens.
This is about the best I can do, still some moisture in the air and taken from S.E. Melbourne suburbs. 100% crop.

If tele end upto 300mm is your preference then it is better to go for Pentax DA 55-300mm. Otherwise DA 50-200mm is just fine.
