    Well, in that case I may just have to sell the 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 and put the money towards the DA 300
  2. Bcrary3
    I think after a Panagor 90mm f/2.8 that is my next lens to get! I think it would really work well to replace my Sigma 28-300mm. I was thinking about the Sigma 300mm f/2.8 but.. At $3400.00 hardly seems worth it. How is the flare with the Pentax, or does the hood take care of alot of that? (hopefully it comes with a hood I have only seen photos of it without the hood)

    You said you have the DA 300mm, I am curious, what is it like? Is it worth the nearly $1400 (or would a second hand one be better due to a lower price or is it something you would only want new?)
    How is the IQ, focus, weight?

    Dear Sparkle,

    In keeping with my Pedagogy bent, Sociology, familiarity with various Cultures and Comparative Religions and regardless of the fact that I find Buddhism, not as a Religion, but as a way of life most attractive, my first post for a caption is supported by the following quote from a version of the Koran, commented upon as:

    "Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert." -- Sahih Muslim 10.3811
    ---End Quote---
    The reason for this reminder was: Inappropriate posting

    Religious commentary such as this is not allowed outside of the politics and Religion forum.

    Shipping to Sweden would run $60.80. With a $20 credit toward shipping, it would be $40.80. With PayPal fee (2.9% = $19.44) it would come to $710.24. I have recently returned to Pentax, so this is the second copy of this lens I have owned. Neither copy ever had SDM problems. I have shipped lenses in the past to Australia, South Africa, Germany and New Zealand. There have not been issues with customs. I provide a tracking number and request that buyers email me when the lens arrives. There haven't been any delays in my experience.

    Best wishes,
