Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Ha-ha, not sure why you feel seasick, sorry about that!

It was a good ten quid, in fact probably a bit less. Paid 32 for a Pentax MZ-50 film SLR that came with 2 Sigma lenses, DL 28-80mm macro (has a 1:2 macro mode would you believe it?) and this DL 100-300mm lens. Camera and both lenses are mint condition, sold the camera for 15, so the two lenses were 17 between them. The 28-80 is pretty darn good too and the macro mode is spectacular for a lens of this type. Won't compete with a dedicated macro lens or a prime on tubes, but for a walk-around lens it's fantastic.

Thank you very much! I'll be keeping this lens and its 28-80 companion for now, they are great walk-around lenses being very light and portable.
