Latest Review Posted Sigma APO 100-300mm F4 EX DG
Apologies if I have reviewed this lens (V2) before, but if I have then I can't find it!

Anyway, I "robbed" someone in the UK around 2010 when I got it for around 570 to go with my newish K-5 - wont' be selling anytime soon as it's still working well with the K-3 II.
Edited Oct 2017: autofocus is lightning quick on the K-3 II - unless it overshoots! MUCH faster than the 150-500 OS HSM, which is totally "turgid" by comparison.

Can't add much to all the previous reviews in this thread, but I love it.

The only thing I might add is that, if using the body AF mode then keep the lens in (screwdrive) manual focus mode as you then effectively get the same sort of "quickshift" manual override that you get with many Pentax (and other) lens - OTOH, if you put it in lens AF mode then you lose that override.

However, a warning: there are few if any spares available for this lens, so "try before you buy".
