Thats great news, now i'll have to decide if i really want that extra 50mm in the DA* 60-250 or the all round condition shooting that 70-200 offers.....Seems Pentax have legitimate competition now and as more and more support comes along..... Maybe this is one of those years where rather than rushing out and snatching everything as it comes along it would probably be better to sit back and watch the marketplace do its thing. Pentax may well react with an announcement that their gonna come out with some new tele ranges for next year...What ever happens were still gonna have to wait till mid year before we see the new DA* tele anyway...
That sounds like good advice to me. Pentax is getting some much needed reach from third parties so that might dictate what lenses they put into the market first.

On Sigma's website. That's about it now - the lenses have not been released yet. (Scheduled for release this summer sometime.)

Just noticed the Sigma 50-150/2.8 is on special (pre-)order at Henry's (Canada) for 899... compared to the same-store price of $1099 for the DA* 50-135mm...
