Dude, these kind of pictures...

From the looks of it this is like the FA 31 and the DA 15 mixed. Absolutely stellar picture.

This lens is so fantastic. It is the limited lens that was not. I have the F series one and it is sharp and dreamy. On FF it looks similar to FA 77 does on APS-C.

That’s great to hear! Thanks for sharing. I have always believed a short cut fix was going to get mixed results over the long term. However, I wouldn’t have been surprised if it held strong for a lot of people.

So what would you call ammo then?

I just assumed that every upgrade in AF from new flagships made the current AF lenses better.

I don’t understand the kit comment? I do appreciate the follow up continued issues that may come after my “quick fix”. It helps me assess my k30 situation and potential future issues.

I will readily admit, it seems like the full frame intent was maintaining their legacy of stellar primes. I don’t own any of the zooms, although I will buy the 70-200 2.8 DFA*. I currently own the Tamron 70-200 which is stellar for its price point.
I personally prefer primes, and just recently bought the FA 31 (and just fell in love). Landscape stills with that and pixel shift, I’m not sure anyone makes anything better.
But to the original topic, I think the partnership they got with Tamron to get 15-30 and 24-70 was wise. Their new stuff is as a good as anyone’s!
You have to attack where there is market share.

Iím confusedÖ Pentax has released 15-30, 24-70, 70-200 2.8, 70-210 4, 28-105 since 2015 or 2016.
They have released DFA primes: 21 Limited, 50, and 85. Those are all full frame lenses they have released since the k1 (or released right before). And tell me what company makes primes better than those 3? Like really?
11-18, 16-50 for APS-C.

Pentax has a far more deliberate plan than they did previously. When they release a new camera body it out performs everything else. The K3III has vastly improved AF and narrowed the gap with Canon and Nikon. When they released the KP is was a pure masterpiece and was far superior on ISO levels and using pixel shift. The K1, the 645Z, the k70 (for budget line).

The whole camera industry is trying (or has successfully) mimic the pixel shift. We may disagree at the speed of Pentaxís model, but there is nothing Iíve just posted that is untrue.

Maybe the plan isn’t to get products out to market as soon as possible. Maybe there is a deliberate process that considers a longer period of time of accomplishing newer products. As we saw they have slowed WAY down on DSLR production because of market analysis. I’m currently shooting with a K1 and have zero issues with it. I would rather have the company produce slowly and deliberately instead of rush and fail because of QC (like SDM issues on 16-50 and 50-135). They have a tiny market share and they have to hit on their products to stay in the game. I think the 70-300 needs to distinguish itself from other products available and meet the demands of the new sensors. But let’s be honest - their base zoom lenses have been top notch (newer), 55-300, 16-85, 28-105, 20-40. I expect them to do the same with this. Slowly and deliberately.

Asking Price

Item Location
Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Sigma APO DG 135-400 F/4.5-5.6
I purchased this from another forum member about 3 months ago. I am selling it because I purchased a Sigma 150-500 HSM that is a bit better. This one does pretty well inside 300mm and 300-400 isn't bad, but focus is accurate and it functions well. It has some very very minor fungus that started in a corner that I couldn't take a picture of. It isn't spreading, and it is really hard to even catch a picture of. There is some dust in the front of the lens also.
It functions as it should and takes good pictures.

Pentax SMC A 70-210 F/4 SOLD
I purchased this about 4 years ago and barely used it. It was a back up to my Tamron 70-200 2.8. I rarely used it, but the zoom slides well and the focus is smooth also. It is very clean and hasn't seen much use over all.
