Best Long Telephoto Lens

I have had the lens for a few months so far and it is probably the best Telephoto lens I have owned and I have owned quite a few.  It has become my everyday lens.. I know it's heavy but what can I say, I just love it. From 50mm to about 425mm it's very clear and a little soft the rest of the way.

It has a very Fast focus speed on my Pentax K-5 and my K-30. Not the best on my K-01 but that camera isn't built for such a large lens. The Boken is very good at all focal lengths in my opinion.

I got it on sale at B&H for $1200.00 so I knew I couldn't go wrong for that price.
