I have the Pentax AF360 but I really don't like using flash as it takes away a lot of the beautiful colours during live shows!

I never use autofocus. I always work in manual. When I said the focus was hard on the Tamron 28-75mm, it's really what it meant. The mechanics seems to be less fluid. The focus is not as smooth on any of the other lenses I have. I am actually working faster with my cheaper telephoto lens Tamron 70-300 mm...There are other people who complained about that issue elsewhere here.

I will have to go for a better body in the months to come. Thanks a lot for the advices. I think I will be using the Tamron 28-75 during the show and the Prime lens after the show when I get to come closer to the models! The prime lens is really so good compared to the Tamron 28-75. I really don't regret acquiring that one!

I would have suggested fast & prime if I'd got to this thread sooner, length would have depended on distance to catwalk.
