Which 300mm F* or DA*?

I'm pondering between the 300 F* and 300 DA*. I presently have the 300 A* (great lens) but want to move to autofocus. Also prefer tripod mount, so not FA*.

DA* 1) 1/2 stop faster. 2) WR. 3) Newer technology.
F* 1) Smaller (a little). 2) Smaller filter size. 3) Slightly better reviews.


Image quality? Does the F* have an edge over the DA*? I like DA* for WR, but F* seems to have a very stellar reputation. Does anyone have experience with both? Any other thoughts?

Larger battery. This was the deciding factor for me to not buy a KP.

I recently got a K 55 1.8 and am very impressed indeed. Build quality is top notch, focus butter smooth but the images from it are what impressed the most. This lens is a great value in my opinion.
In the past I've had other K lenses (24 F2.8, 50 F4 Macro and 28 F2.0 come to mind) and they are (IMHO) worthy of a vote here. The 28 F2.0 is the one lens I truly regret ever selling.

1) Thank you for service to country. 2) God bless your family. 3) Great photographs. 4) The operating room is a reminder to me how blessed our country is (I had surgery five days ago). 5 ) The B&W photo does more for me. Draws my eye straight to his face (which seems more prominent in B&W) and speaks volumes by expression. 6) I love Pentax but your switch seems quite logical. It is just a set of tools selected for a job. Best of luck in your future.

I have owned the A*85 for more than 30 years (along with it's sibling A*300F4). It is amazing and easily my favorite lens.

Had one many moons ago to use with PZ-1. Called it a "Flame Thrower". Maybe the best Pentax unit until 540 FGZ and maybe still. I replaced mine with the 540 to gain PTTL.
BTW does appear to me that Penax logo may have been (hastily) blacked out.

+1 for 70-200 F4. The 2.8 is too beastly for my needs. Hope it will be somewhat lighter smaller than 60-250, with internal focus & zoom.
