I have the 50 - 500mm Sigma. It's a great lens once you get used to it.
I will be buying the 300mm Pentax for the WR so I can still have a long lens in wet conditions. The Sigma has been used in quite heavy rain but I don't want to push my luck.
I would buy them in the order I have. Sigma then Pentax unless WR was a major factor.

thanks AJSAUco.

The Sigma 50-500 looks quite exciting, especially its 500mm FL.

With its size, it requires the use of a tripod or some other support, right?

The WR of the DA*300 is certainly a good feature.
