It is always in the camera bag and with me. I would say it's my second most used lens for general outdoor stuff. I've found it is also pretty good inside. I've been looking at houses to buy, and after about 25 visited (with loads of pics inside) I've found it is AWESOME in small spaces. I would post pics of those, but I already deleted them all because I settled on a house that's still under construction.

I've had the lens since the spring and I've used it a bunch. It is well constructed, and hasn't let me down yet! I really enjoy the 10-24 range, and most of the time I have it or my Tamron 17-50 on unless I need to go longer. I also like the color and contrast of this lens too.

You realize that if I accept this argument, there's a very good chance my wife will hunt you down?
I understand your concern.

I will buy three more lenses. Once these three have been procured, I have promised myself never ever to buy a lens again.

I see that you're still in denial about LBA. You might as well admit it. Resistance is futile.

I may have suffered from LBA when I got my my first ever Pentax two years ago; backward compatibility is a
wonderful thing, but you usually end up accumulating lenses which you will hardly ever need. I also had an initial
fascination with telephoto lenses, but they are a pain to carry around. Give me an ultra wide angle, a 35mm, and
a decent macro and I shall ask for no more.

A hint: you can get the Sigma 8-16 mm from SRS (srsmicrosystems.co.uk) for 399 Gbp, that is below 500e and makes the price difference with the Tamron much smaller. And if you are a member in the uk Pentax forum you get a discount on int'l shipment.

Ja, I have seen it. 399+25 GBP equal 527 EUR. In October this item was being offered for 489 EUR in Germany.

I think my 8-16mm is great, obviously used in the right circumstances

I particularly like the way it copes with direct sun.
