I'll keep my Bigma, which at 500/5.6 is basically equivalent to the new Pentax for 1/7 the price, since I bought it new for $1000 a few years back. I find it quite sharp at f/5.6 and very sharp at f/8. Oh, and ya, it also has every focal length from 50mm to 499mm included for the same price!!!!

Heared the saying "you get what you pay for "

Never was a truer word spoken

Never compare a Zoom against a prime

The Bigma though an awesome 10X zoom easily besting any consumer zoom of equal lengths is nothing more than a Haze filter compared against a £2000+ prime.

Methink a slice of reality if needed around here the amount of misconception is funny.

I to own the Bigma and a number of HQ long primes so I do know what I'm talking about.!

Speed is no indication of lens IQ take the above the Sigma 300f2.8 would be easily bested by the Pentax da* 300 F4 @F4
