Narenvaidee, welcome.
There is an active Pentax user group here now, with all lenses available. We are in touch with the main Ricoh guys here, and they are very good people. Pm me your phone number, and I'll get you added to the Pentax users Whatsapp group.
There are 3 users of the DA560 also.

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.

it is 54000 yen on Amazon JP. That is about 440 USD. Pentax mount is available. They had a 10 percent off promo in June when I bought mine.

I went to Japan for a business trip, so I just had it shipped to our subsidiary office in Tokyo. Picked it up from there personally.
