sigma 17-50mm f2.8 doesn't have OS?

I'm planning to get this lens Sigma 17 50mm F2 8 EX DC HSM Zoom Lens for Pentax Japan Model New 085126583613 | eBay but it doesn't have OS. Is there another one with OS for Pentax K3.


Is it even worth getting the OS version?

Thanks

At that short focal range, the in-body shake reduction is fantastic. I had the lens in your link -- and it was excellent. The version with OS is nicely rated, as well. You would use either the in body SR, or the lens OS. Both are effective. I would just buy the one in your link, make sure SR is active on your K-3 -- and get to shooting

In a word no. Unless I am using telephoto lens, I turn off OS and use the in camera SR, a lens without OS is most likely lighter as well.

No. Was worth it on the K20D, not on the K-3ii.

Own this lens, use it all the time. I do not miss the OS, my in body SR works great at this range. You should have wonderful results.

I don't remember for sure with this lens, but the Pentax lenses from Sigma that did have OS were quickly re-released without it since the in-body SR renders it obsolete (except perhaps in super telephotos).
