Forgive my ignorance, this would extend the hood out further? The flare is that bad? I have a couple of years till he plays stadium ball, majority of the games will be early evening. With that said I do have plans on getting the D FA 70-200. And again I waiting to see what the new camera will be when/if it is released. I thought this was too good of a deal to pass up.

Dave I do not, never used one. Main reason I ever got a camera (K10D) was to take pictures of my kids. I then got into wildlife (took camera when I guided duck hunting in the white river bottoms). Now it's pretty much all about my son's football. Just keeping fingers crossed on the newest release, hopefully this summer. I currently have a K70.

I hope so. Keeping fingers crossed it is at least the II but if not no big deal. Honestly I will end up getting the pentax D FA 70-200 and probably sell this one if it is a good copy. I really need the weather sealing due o the fact that I am rough and careless with stuff. Main reason I got pentax to start off with way back when. It will be pretty much football and hunting (wildlife) both of which will be in any and all elements.

I believe it is this one:
70-200mm F2.8 EX DG Macro (HSM) - HSM, macro feature, minimum focus distance reduced to 1m (2006)

She did say it said macro but I do not recall her saying HSM II
Hopefully it will work out. I need to do some reading up. I am leaning twords a K3 II body to go with my K70. Rather than switching between lenses I can just grab and shoot

I just got off the phone with the young lady and she agreed to keep the money in her paypal account till I have tried it and confirmed it does work. If it doesn't I will send it back. I did offer to it half the cost on the lens and return it. In other words she refund me 125 and she gets the lens back. She said to not worry it will be full refund. I will pay the shipping both ways if that is the case. So I am going for it.

So obviously the lens doesn't match the box. This is the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG APO HSM Macro. Keeping fingers crossed this thing works out

I stand corrected. So how dependable are these af motors and how fast are they? Sigma has sports lenses but never made them for pentax. I want to use it to shoot 7/8 grade football. My DA 50-135 is a lot faster now that I converted it.

Correct me if I am wrong. This lens does not have a drive motor, I assume focus is screwdrive. With that said I called Sigma today and they said that lens is not serviceable. It almost sounded as if any Sigma lens that is k mount is no longer under warranty. I asked if I purchased a new unused lens from like adorama would it be under warranty. I was advised it would not. So on my end it is a gamble. She was asking 350 for it but that was too much of a sting for me to handle. I offered $250.

I am currently looking at purchasing this lens. Found a seller that got deceived into buying it cause it had a Canon lens cap on it. When she received it she then discovered it was for pentax. Assuming it is a good sample, is it worth $250? Thinking hard on pulling the trigger on it.

Pentax USA Looking for a PR Person

Too bad they are not looking for field reps. I give my gear a beating in hunting conditions and everyone keeps asking me what I shoot with. I have probably sold over 100 pentax cameras in the last year and a half lol. Rain sleet snow or shine I take the old K10 on every single hunting trip, duck or deer hunting. When my DA* is attached I have no problem getting it muddy or wet and people freak out. If the hunting hobby did not dominate the photo hobby I would have a K5 in a heart beat. But to not hijack the thread I could not do PR work. Here is a video I shot at the end of the season. You will see my camera haning in the tree.

100% sure these are not fake nor am I. I just picked up 9 of these and am keeping 3 for myself. All others I think are spoken for. Soon as payment reaches my account on the last one I will mark thread accordingly. Thanks for your concern.

PS The ones I am selling are Extreme III's not the slow Ultra II's

Answered you in pm and the answer to all that may wonder, it does not come with it. I quess Sandisk thinks everyone is up to date and do not require it or they want to make more money by selling them seperate. My computers require the reader as do most of my friends. It does come with the recovery mini CD software. I have seen a couple of people remove it from the package and sell it seperate but I am not doing that. What is in the box is what you get.

DA* 50-135 will not auto focus w/new K200D
Posted By cajuncutter

I have the K10D and had a few problems with this lens. I heard a squeak when it would focus and then it started taking its time turning its self on or responding. Luckily I had purchased this from a member here and it had warranty left. I sent it in last week and the techs found a ciruitry problem with the sdm. Replacement will be here next week, brand new never used in the box. Also this is cool..Pentax warranty starts all over so I get another year of warranty. I do not know what other companies polices are but I doubt they all stand behind their gear like that. Hope you figure your problem out.
