Thanks Frogfish! Just checked out the 10-20 on photozone and it looks really good for the money! How do you find using the 17-50 vs 28-75 Tammys?

I don't have the 28-75 (but have used a friend's) though there are a number of people on here who have both (or had at one time or another) and no-one seems to have a bad word to say about either of them. I don't think that IQ or AF speed etc. is an issue with either, it's basically which is more important to you, extra width or extra length. If you are doing portraits I'd say the length, if you are doing group shots / landscapes etc. then I'd say the width of course.

My bag usually contains the 10-20 because it is perfect for my work (interiors - on the K5, despite it's 'slow' aperture range, it can practically focus in the dark) ! It also nearly always contains 2 or 3 primes (from 15 to 50) but the Sigma 50-150 covers the upper end for me. The 17-50 is a great lens for client events too, it's an excellent, very sharp, lens and wonderful value.
