Also, the 50-135mm that Derren has may be a good shout. It's an awesome lens (and I don't know why you'd want to avoid it!)

Cheers guys, i had seen the one in srs online, and have messaged them. Cheers

Harris, I know you really like the 50-135mm and rate it really highly.
Tbh I had one a few years ago, and I just did not like it. It may just have been front or back focusing and before i knew how to fine tune af, but I really couldn't see myself going back to it.

I have had 3 Sigma 50-150mms and 4 50-135mms .... It took me a long time but iin the end there could be only one.

Both have their pro's and con's but the IQ of the Pentax lens is just unbeatable IMO.

Is that 3 50-135mm
One for each body ?
Or just to be sure to be sure to be sure

It was a period when I really missed the one I sold. Then three different ones came along. I bought them and kept the best one for myself (converted to screwdrive). Sold it recently as I wouldn't use it with the K-1.

Thought I was sorted. Apparently not.
Still looking. Will consider other lens options also

Would you not reconsider a 50-135 Derek? Best lens I have for what I would term 'general use', superb optically. I just wonder whether you had a duffer previously?

Some cameras, some lenses, some bits 'n' bobs
