Re: The importance of DR - D90 beats K20D... get your facts right!

Really? A bigma is around a grand. the 120 400 sigma is 900

a 100 400 canon is around 1600 and 5 times the lens either of the sigmas is.

If he thinks he is going to do birds with a 300, they best be pretty big tame birds

And even at that, the DA* 300 is what? 1100 to 1300?

And if you go that route, you're effectively crippled at 300 mm because there is no TC.

It's just a fact of life. Pentax has left wildlife photographers hanging. At least with Canon and Nikon he has the options.

I've got both the k200d and the k20d. Both fine cameras. I love the Pentax brand, the lens, the whole concept of SR in body, weather sealing, and the wonderful short primes.

But that does not negate the fact that if you are serious about wildlife, Pentax is probably not the best system to buy into. It's sad, but true.
