You can probably also consider one that has been converted to screwdrive unless quiet operation is a must. It's not that loud to be fair, and a tiny bit faster.

Aye I know that but I was always enamoured by the SDM, not for the speed (Obviously!) but for the fact that they would focus smoothly and accurately and optically they were a bit better than either of the 60-250's I've owned, plus it dovetails very nicely with the 16-50mm SDM that I basically just Stole off SRS!
I'm going to team them with probably the 10-17 fisheye as well because I have just always thought it was fun to shoot and much better than most people think it will be. It'll end up being a contest between my new KP and the X-Pro 2 with Fuji glass, going to be an interesting few months...

Definitely do this. The 10-17 is so much better than I thought it ever would be

Can I add a vote for the 10-17 too? It's so sharp and colour always looks punchy. A great lens.

10-17 Go's onto my (Very) short-list

Found a 50-135 for a good price, will be back looking for the Fisheye in a week or two...
Thanks all who replied in thread and privately, ta...
