yes is the same lens, but for pentax
someone told me that it's japan production, marked with carl zeiss trademark.
and that the price request is too much.
do you know the lens?
i attach a photo shoot with this lens, whato do you think?

A lot of the Carl Zeiss Jena zoom lenses from the 80s and early 90s were re-badged Sigma. I used to have a Pratica slr and had a couple of these zooms and they were all pretty good.

ok thank you!
my idea is to substitute my 50-200 DA with this lens.
because it's a 300mm then more long focus
and i think it's more sharp and with a bokeh more blur than the 50-200.
what do you think?
