If you want something better, get this instead of other dark consumer zoom.. and this works on old cameras flawlessly too.. it even has aperture ring for film bodies and covers FF perfectly! Price of 2nd hand ones are very close to the price of new HD DA 55-300 PLM darkzoom and AF is very fast.

Sig 100-300/4 EX DG

Sigma is a different lens though, I personally favor the images from Pentax and Tamron.
