Thanks guys for the warm welcome! I now have a question. I own a Pentax k-x and would like to purchase a 70-300 lens. The ones that I've been looking at are the Tamron 70-300mm 1:2 F/4-5.6 DI LD Macro and the Sigma AF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 Macro DG . Can anyone please advise on which is the better of the two? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum, jarjay.
Both of those lenses are reviewed on the forum at Third-Party Lenses for Pentax - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database
