I don't have experience with long lenses other than 55-300, but it's one of the best for the price. I have the DA L version. It's definitely slow to focus and little noisy too, but gets the work done if you use it right.

Here's one BIF I took recently that I'm pretty happy with.

Good shot.    

Note that this was taken with Pentax K-x. With K-30 it should be little easier with improved AF performance.
