Uttam is in India, and they most definitely charge customs on photographic items imported here.

Sigma lost patent infringement case with that lens in Japan, that's why they are so cheap there.

I think the Sigma 150-600 contemporary is also a steal around the same price as the Nikon. Sadly, not available on Pentax.

Haha, sorry monochrome. This nanhi person is a subtle troll, and I thought I'd call him out on that. Nothing more nothing less.

I've uploaded a quick shot from my 8-16, on the K-01. Kept on my window sill, shot in AV, f/9.5, ISO 100.
At 100%, it's not very sharp, at least I don't think so. SR was off, and I used a 2 second timer as well, to eliminate all shake.

What do you guys think?

First shot @ 8mm, the next one at 16mm.
