help to find lenses

I am looking for a long telephoto lens. for pentax k200. Have read that the tamron 200-500 comes in a pentax mount. Any suggestions on how to find one? Any other lenses that you could suggest? Maybe not as heavy as the "bigma". Thanks for you help

I have a Sigma 170-500mm lens. I would recommend it. It's not a $10,000 lens, but it takes real crisp images (with a little softening as you approach 500mm).

Thanks for your input. I just got one of those today. It was heavier than I imagines, but we will see if I can hold it still. Thank you

Hi, Bro Navcom, can you show us some photo from this lens? I'm really interest in this range.

Here is one....User Photo Gallery - Machines and Vehicles

It is heavy, but not Bigma heavy. I've actually been able to handle it without a tripod on a sunny day.
