To the op... Going through the same dilemma I've upgraded lenses to the sigma 70-200mm f2.8 II. Works great on my k10d ohh and my new to me k-7 should be here this weekend. Purchased from another commentor. We will see how that works, hopefully much better. And I should be Pentax owner at least one more year. I shoot semi pro bAseball and hopefully hockey next fall if i can win the bid.

A mistake from the start? I know the frustration when you cannot depend on the gears being paid from. It has been said many times that Pentax SDM is unreliable, and Canon & Nikon own sport photography. Put your personal feeling aside, buy Pentax for their primes, Canon or Nikon for big performance zooms, it's that simple really.
This is an interesting comment. Zooms can be very important in some types of photography like weddings (according to the pros I have spoken to.)

(I didn't resurrect this thread but since someone did I made the comment.)
