So it will not work with the K10D? That would be a great lens. I was looking at the Sigma 10-20 but this is appealing.

Why do you not think this will work w/ the K10D? It sounds like it does since the Pentax mount is in the supported list :-)

I was thinking of the Sigma 10-20 as well since everyone seems to like it, but this Tamron is interesting looking...same filter size, a little longer...

looks interesting, but doesn't mention a release date? (or did I miss it??) The 70-200 was announced march but is only about to be released. Still could be good, gives me time to get the 17-50 and the 70-200 and the ...

That is great news to me too! My favorite lenses seem to come from Tamron. I'll be keeping my eye open for this lens when it is available!

It looks like it is slightly faster...

Sigma Zoom Super Wide Angle 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC J

TAMRON SP AF10-24MM F/3.5-4.5 DI II LD ASPHERICAL (IF)

I guess I will hold out to see what this lens can do before I purchase a wide angle.

I just emailed Tamron about this lens so we will see if they will provide any further info...maybe it's still a big secret.

My biggest (and I guess only?) pet peeve of my Sigma 10-20mm is it's (lack of) speed at the long end. So the Tamron looks like a GREAT option, faster and longer!

it's not much faster...maybe 1/2 stop?
I emailed them to ask them about availability dates as well but no luck. I figure x-mas time which is unfortunate because I could use it on a few long weekend trips this year, so I have to resist the urge to get the Sigma 10-20...

This is what I got back from Tamron...

"Since this was only the announcement of the development of this lens, we do not have any delivery or pricing information."
