Tamron 18-250mm zoom on ist.DL

I really like the look of the Tamron 18-250mm zoom lens. I think it is compatible with my 5 year old Pentax ist.DL but would like confirmation that the auto focus facility will work ok. Any advice would be welcome.

It will. The only AF lenses that *won't* AF with the DL are the SDM/HSM-only lenses, of which there are just a small handful. Assuming you can still find the Tamron (it's out of production), go for it. The Sigma 18-250 that is available is unfortunately one of the HSM-only lenses, I think.

Many thanks Marc. I have placed an order for the Tamron lens. Only hope it's still in stock.
