Pentax 150-450 vs Sigma 50-500 OS

I used to have the little brother to the Sigma 50-500, the Sigma 150-500 HSM. I bought the Pentax DFA 150-450 on a killer deal (after cashback bonus I ended up at $1501 dollars). I compared the two. The Sigma was sold because that 150-450 was definitely sharper even wide open, and there really wasn't much of a difference on FOV at the long end, plus even with the HD DA 1.4 teleconverter the Pentax lens gave correct and accurate info and would focus well where the Sigma did not give accurate info and focus was iffy, plus that combo was still incredibly sharp even wide open. If you can get it I'd go for it.

Pentax Forums came to being because DPR banned so many Pentax users. You've earned a badge of honor.

A K50 with 18-135 is a great combo, the Weather Resistance gives you a lot of confidence. You can then look for some old manual prime lenses to satisfy your artistic ambitions.

You mention resale - you can also look for used K30 or K5 series cameras. This is a good option to save some money. The Pentax offerings are more solidly built than the lower to mid level Nikons. The Marketplace here on the PF website is a great place to look for used equipment.

You seem read to make the jump to a more technical camera, the K3 or K5 will give you all the flexibility you need, and the controls to do everything yourself or allow the camera to make some decisions. The K30/50 will give you much of this, too, but personally I like my K5, it's been a great performer.
