Note: there is an older version of the lens that does not support HSM on Pentax. See also the newer version with OS Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM

Wow I think these are sharper and have better bokeh than the 85mm shots you posted.

This must be that horribly lens that everyone complaints about because it takes bad photos!
Oh well, I like it and use it a lot. It is a little soft closer to the edges at 200mm f2.8-3.2. though i think thats not bad by any standards.

The above photo was done at 155mm @ f3.5 on the K7
It has been retouched but not as majorly as you may think.

Oh my god, this lens is so horrible, I can not stand it ! LOL, those who can't get a good shot using this lens (which is high quality and not cheap btw) should blame their hands and rethink if they really can call themselves photographers :ugh:
