available via tokina in canonland....?
Sorry I was being unclear I mean most of pentax's top lenses (16-50 and 50-135) can be had in Canon and Nikon mount, manufactured by Tokina. The coatings are different but technically they're the same lens. That's why I mean if one is using pentax, they should do so for the primes as alot of them just don't have equals in Canon or Nikon.

India is rainy and dusty. WR can help with this.

Pentax 50-135mm: I own this lens. Takes superb pictures. Because of the talk of SDM issues, I got extra warranty for very little. But have not had any issues with it so far-about a year so far with it.

16-50mm: I have been thinking of purchasing it. I have used it. Kinda big for that focal length is the only reason I have not bought it so far.

My favorite lens though is the DA 70mm. Does not focus close but otherwise small and takes great pictures.
