I know what you mean

The RRP of the lens in question is a giveaway as to the quality , might make some who question current pentax pricing wake up.

Sigma 400mm f5.6 AF = £220 (1988)

Sigma 400mm f5.6 Apo = £300

Sigma 400mm F5.6 Telemacro = £3500 (at launch Sep96)

For complteness

£3500 in 1996 = today

£5120 RPI or £5970 Average Earnings

£220 in 1988 = today (£460 and £584 repectively)
