I just hope the new lens focusses much faster. The DA*300 is driving me a little crazy with the number of shots I miss. It's wonderful when it does focus, but aggravating when it doesn't!
It is, cause it is much more powerfull than the little sdm micro engine

moar lens porn!

Plus - do those AF lock (or whatever) buttons actually do anything on the K-3?
the K3 needs a firmware update, as stated before, for the buttons to work

Now, it is time for a DA*300 replacement with new engine, HD, aero bright 2, and focus limiter

You mean the canon 100-400 USM II? Nah that thing is incredibly fast, I watched a video of it just after the Pentax and the canon focused at infinity to close and out agin in the same time the Pentax did 2/3 of the process mention of the canon lens.

Ugh, so much for having this lens by the April 4 lunar eclipse. Oh well, guess I'll have to wait for for the September 27/28 eclipse, though that will be less than optimal as it will occur during twilight hours before it gets totally dark here.

Sounds like a good idea, but it won't help those of us who already have the DA*300. If I'm going to buy another long lens I'd sooner buy the 150-450.

A dunno about the Nikon. The Sigma I tried was pedestrian (150-600 but I dunno which one, the best I imagine, they usually show what's best, right?).
