photos are hard to find?

they say sigma 17-50 lens is a nice lens on k5 but why is it that its hard to find sample photos taken with this lens?

does it mean not much people use this lens!

It's a rather new lens, and I don't think many know about it, but it is quite good!

@phaser hmmm not yet i only searched at flickr & pixel peeper most of this sites show pictures taken using nikon & canon.

thanks i'll try to look at this pbase site.

because honestly i'm trying to weight the color rendition difference of sigma & tamron 17-50.

i've read the review here, i just wanted a simple color comparison of this two lenses & the sigma shots are quite hard to find.

anyway thanks for the comments.

they have the sigma 17-50 shot but still using nikon or either canon.

i'm doing this just to make sure which one to take because as i have noticed, nikon canon & pentax render colors differently even when using the same lens based upon my observation.

if there's someone there who could share some personal shots it would be very helpful.
