Re: Pentax 300mm DA on Nikon D800?

If you've enough pennies to get the D800 surely you should have something spare to get the Nikkor AF-S 300 f4....

I own both AF-S and DA* 300 f4 models...

In terms of focussing hits (speed and accuracy) Nikkor wins
In terms of sharpness (crispness) the Pentax wins

If I am at an air show or photographing birds the D3 AF-S combo is preferred. If the subject is more static then I go for the K-5 DA*
