Pentax does not have a 70-200 f/2.8 but you can use the Sigma or Tamron. The test Nikon ones is better and so is the Canon but they cost $2000+.

Sadly only the old Tamron is available for Pentax, too bad Tamron is not releasing their new lenses to PK mount, I have them are they are quite a bargain for the performance.

You get your information from where ??!!!


"For Sony and Pentax mount, the built-in OS function of this lens can be used even if the camera body is equipped with an anti-shake function."

Please read carefully before responding....




All of these which have the upgraded USD motor are not available for Pentax. I didn't mention anything about Sigma...

Your response is rather slanted, IMHO. When someone posts that Sigma and Tamron are available and you respond that only the old Tamron is available, you're implying that Sigma isn't available, either. Also, keep in mind the prior version of those two Tamron lenses are obsolete on Canon and Nikon (but not Pentax) as they don't have IBIS.

How am I implying Sigma isn't available either ?

I mentioned that only Tamron isn't available, I guess I can be more specific and say Sigma's is available too...

The upgrade isn't just adding VR, the optic is also significantly upgraded along with the new USD AF motor which are faster/quiet/accurate.

Anyways more choice = better I don't know what Pentax did to scare Tamron away from releasing new lenses for Pentax but they should kiss and make up especially with the 150-600 they're releasing
