Telephoto

I am looking into a good telephoto lens, the two that have caught my eye are within the same price range. Recommendations Sigma 50-500 f4-6.3 EX APO or
Pentax DA*300 F4 ED. Reach or quality????

"Reach or quality" - that needs to be your personal decision.

I have and use the Sigma 50-500 and find it to be a competent performer. It might not be as sharp as the DAQ300, but in real world photographs, the quality is more "user-limited", as in my personal experience, the Bigma needs some getting used to, to achive the best results. If the focus is spot on and you used a tripod or monopod, the images of the Bigma are very good, even at the full 500mm.
