Thanks for the tip, Stan and Adam. I think I have to wait until I've paid some of my holiday bills, but then...

I'm actually surprised at how quickly this lens is being discounted after release. Looks like it should hang at this price I am thinking. If you can manage it in the future, it really is a very nice lens. I need to shoot some more with it and post some examples.

Oh ok - no problem - no apology necessary. Just wanted to be sure we all have our facts the same.

My main point was the lens came off of selling at list price pretty quickly - seems that is a trend with certain items lately instead of the list price holding for a long time.

oh... this would be ideal for taking to the zoo with my q. Much lighter than the k5 and 100-300 f4. Thanks for the heads up!

Yeah - the 06 is 83mm-249mm equivalent so you won't be loosing too much focal length but a lot of weight!

If you're talking "full frame" equivalence, the 100-300 FOV becomes 150-450 on the k-5, so you are indeed losing a lot of reach. But proportionally, the weight loss is much more significant.
