Hi,

I have no knowledge of that lens, except that it is a fairly old design. My current rig for birding, airshows and car racing is the K3iii with the 55-300 PLM. I now that others use the same setup with the 1.4 TC added. So far, I have decided to get by with just cropping.

Good luck with your choice.

I would love to get the 55-300 plm but my K 5ii doesn’t support aperture control in that lens!

The K5ii and the Sigma 50-500 DG OS HSM work very well together.
