    I'm having a trouble finding a review for this lens:
    Pentax FA 80-200 4.7-5.6
    Has anyone used this lens or know where I can at least find a review of it? I googled and everything. :(

    Is the F the same as the FA?

    No. But someone on that link posted above says the optics are the same. The F one is manual focus only.

    I noticed that little part.

    This looks like a pretty good lens. I could pick one up for $45 used, I may pounce on it.

    don't know aot the Pentax lens except the reviews linked about
    I have a nikon lens with about the same specs. Good for bright outdoor shots but useless for my daughter's gymnastics (indoors) I use my 85mm f/1.8 for that. 200mm f/5.6 is to slow for things that move indoors.

    just so you know, that's 55-135 or so on a DSLR.

    Wouldn't it be like a 120-300?
