Good Macro Lens,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 Macro DG Lens For Pentax Digital & Film SLR Cameras (Electronics)
I have bought this lens back in 2010. I was trying to get a relatively cheap macro lens that would allow me to shoot from a long distance. This was my choice and I can't regret it. The picture up to 200mm is very good, although from greater zoom you will require a tripod, which by the way you need for this of zoom lens.
The lens is a bit heavy and probably will not be your default lens, but is a great 2nd lens to take into the country.
I have used this lens on both my Pentax km and K5.
Also it is a great lens to focus on the object that you want and blur all the background. The lens also comes with a hood, handy when you do not have polarizing filters.
By the way, if you use filters you will need 58mm filters for this lens.
