Have to say that finding a good 16-50 is a bit like finding gold!

Speaking of absurd pricing, I walked into a camera store on George St in Sydney the other day and casually inquired about the DA*50-135, the girl at the counter said $1699 it's all yours. I shrugged and just for the fun of it, asked how much for the Sigma 50-150 f2.8 II, which I know had been discontinued and was selling in DCW for $921, she said sure we can order one for you in 3-4 days for the bargain price of....$1899...How I kept a straight face and walked out of the door I don't know.

Theres only one shop in George St with a girl behind the counter and its where I bought my first Pentax SLR. Shes only been there a couple of years now.I still buy stuff from them ocassionally. We usually ignore the price on the computer or sticker, I call that the "tourist" price. They do price match.
