Hi guys,

Sorry to ask, but I have a catwalk shoot this Friday for the local business in development forum, run by the local authority. As I have not done anything like this before I was seeing if anybody else had experience?

I will be one of the main shooters 😮 However kit wise is fairly limited, so any opinons would be most welcome.

There is a no flash rule so I am limited with the following;

K-3ii with k-30 back up
50mm da 1.8
20-40 ltd
18-135
18-55 (kit lens)

I was hoping to get a 60-250 da* before the shoot but the deal fell through, hence my quandry 😕.

Just sold my 60-250, but willing to lend either a DA* 50-135 or Sigma 70-200 f2.8 HSMII if of any use?

Alternatively SRS offer a lens rental service.

However I have today bought a Tamron SP AF 70-200 F2.8 Di LD from Amazon for 475.00 which I thought was a decent buy. Hopefully this will arrive before Friday....

Many thanks agin though for the offer.

The Tamron is a great lens - fast and sharp - albeit noisy focus unless its already near the focus point
