Re: Overpriced product - just buy Sigma 500/4.5

bridge cameras like the fz150 will make sales to birders less. as they attach a canon 500d tele filter and get 900mm 5.2 with great quality at only 500 bucks for the full kit. and weigh 500g.

cheers don

If the Q had an adapter that would allow AF of the SDM lenses, I'd go that direction as I have the other Pentax gear. I still may.

If Pentax would just put the new Sony m4/3 sensor in a K-5 body, the DA * 200mm f2.8 would have 400mm equivalency and the DA * 300mm f4 would  have 600mm equivalency. I think Pentax would sell a lot more of the DA * 200mm and DA * 300mm than DA 560mm. It might even sell a few more DA 55mm f1.4 and the DFA 100mm f2.8 WR.

Thank you
