Tamron 17-50

Is anyone, anywhere shooting with the new Tamron 17-50 in Pentax mount? I've held off buying the Sigma 18-50 macro because I have high hopes for the Tamron. I don't think it's available here in The States yet but perhaps one of our friends in the UK or elsewhere can post a personal review or some pix.

I'm in the States too, and I pre-ordered mine a week ago from B&H. Hopefully, I'll be able to report on the lens "soon-ish."

I posted on here and dpreview that mine i imported from Japan to UK was front focusing bad. Sent it back for a refund. Must point out that though the focus point was a good 2 cms in front of the chosen point it was nice and sharp at 2.8. Will definatly get another but from a UK shop sometime.

interesting illustrated note about the focus field curvature that Tamron has
