Excellent! Nothing more sad than unnamed camera gear - except maybe unaffordable camera gear but I can be patient..
The 150-450 range is an excellent decision.

Especially considering that both lenses seem to have stabilizers in them.

This 150-450mm F4.5-5.6 ...

Looks like a serious contender for those who have been waiting for a decent "birding" super-zoom !

I smell $$$ (+$) too, as serysergy said earlier.

150-450 sure beats the original expectation of 380 on the long end.

I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger on the Tamrom 70-200 2.8 last week.

I am not very interested with 70-200, but 150-450 is what I need. I hope the price tag is not very expensive. 1500 USD max is what I can see myself buying it this year.
Happy happy time for Pentaxian. CP+ Fun.
