Pentax 560mm is clearly not designed for sale. Buy Sigma 500/4.5, I think you get a better lens for much less money.

Why do you think the Sigma is a better lens?

Sigma 500/4.5 is well build fast 500mm lens, IQ wide-open (at f/4.5) already good and very sharp at f/5.6. Excellent sharpness at F8.0. Weight only 3.15kg.

I'm also pis*ed off that pentax is playing with us with such a marginal BS product.
