err I have been eyeballing this. Really need a real telephoto. Just cant decide if the HD is worth the added cost from used older models.

That is almost what I paid from the Pentax webstore. The HD plus WR is definitely a plus. I noticed the HD coating does help reduce flare.

I have the older one and it's quite good. If you get the L version, buy a cheap knock-off hood for it and it will eliminate most flare.
WR is why I would pay more, but I already have the non-WR and another WR lens to cover most of the range so it's not worth it for me to upgrade.
