Lens Upgrade

I have a Pentax K-30 and have been using a Tokina SD 35-200 mm 4-5.6 lens that I had from an older Pentax camera. I am considering purchasing a Pentax DA 50-200 mm WR F4-5.6 lens. With this lens I could use the automatic focusing and have a WR lens. What are your thoughts on making this change considering picture quality and lens weight? Thanks from this first time poster. Ken

First off welcome to the forum.....I consider the DA 50-200mm WR to be a sleeper lens. The one I have has really decent IQ, it's small, inexpensive and I enjoy having the WR. If you want to save a few more $$$ on one check this one out;
