I don't have it for Pentax, but I have a Sigma 70-200 2.8 EX HSM OS that I use for concert photography without a flash on My Sigma cameras. It is a great lens and maybe just a hair above your price range...

Yep that is a good one there, I have however found the same lens in tamron to be almost exactly the same in IQ but it's under $800. I am kinda leaning towards getting that and a 2x TC for it, one of the ones they say are designed for longer FL, and I would end up with a very sharp 400mm with AF. This would run me just over a grand but I wouldn't have anything under 70mm other than my cheap 50 I have now. Hmm
