    Arrow Yes, I think I would be able to live with this lens

    This super-telephoto zoom lens has been developed to cover focal lengths from 150mm to 450mm a focal-length range most demanded by high-end PENTAX-camera users
    With a crop factor of 1.5x (K5, K3) it will be a whopping 225-675mm !
    But weighing as much as 2 kilos it requires some exercise ... or a tripod.
    What do you guys think ?

    Kind regards.

    It's a big sucker for sure ...

    Bart......I got to hold one recently. Balances quite well on a K-3 with grip. It felt so much better crafted that the equivalent Sigma's.

    I will stay loyal to my ancient eBay-sourced F* 300/4.5 lens - that is, if the good (repair)man in Prague manages to fix it, after it started wobbling and disintegrating during an Africa trip late last year, leading to the discovery of many screws missing Still, it managed to take this picture (among others) so it deserves to stay. Long-winded answer to the initial question - no, I probably wouldn't buy the zoom, as for my purposes I need small & compact & razor sharp and my relic lens ticks all these 3 boxes.
