What has been your experience with the Pentax 560mm lens
1

Rather simple question.  I have the Sigma 500mm and the Pentax 150-450mm lenses.

With the new camera coming out I wonder whether the Pentax 560mm might be a winner.  Now, I seldom use the 500mm Sigma - a little too heavy hand held and I use it with a tripod.  The Pentax 150-450mm works fine when hand held.  So, two questions regarding the Pentax 560mm:  (1) How would you rate image quality; (2) how does is work hand held.

Thanks

John Morris
