Very good photo's and very sharp. Looks like a good lens and a better photographer If it is this lens, Third-Party Pentax Lens Review Database - 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM APO maybe think about doing a review as the review database doesn't have one yet. I would be interested. I've heard bunches about the Sigma 100-300 F4, but really nothing about this one.

Thanks for sharing,

Very nice. Is this the new one that just came out? Any idea on how it compares to the bigma?

Yes this is the new one and I haven't had it a week yet, I'll do a review soon.
I bought the lens after reading this post. I enjoy it except for the hard to zoom dial, It's not smooth, But I can live with it.
The shots are all hand held also.
Here is a comparison.
