It has new Tamron AF motor, that is at leas twice as fast as the old one.
I do not really care about personal believing in a flat earth, Marsians living under us etc. Could you support your equally funny claims with a) a link to an official Tamron statement that the AF motor is new and b) an independent source which has actually measured focus acquisition speeds between the two and given evidence that it is "at least twice as fast"?

For the time being I can tell you that the Pentax DFA is actually at least four times as fast as the old Tamron. So the G2 just sucks speedwise.

Few posts back I've posted a video with comparison of both old and new Tamron and my own feelings about usage of that lenses. Belive what you want I will belive in what I can verify myself after having all 3 lenses in my hands at the same time.

I was asking for evidence. Evidence versus belief is like university versus kindergarten.

There is a review about the WR being bad in its place in the lens database. That worries me, considering the places I take my lenses. Not having IF probably doesn’t help. That combined with the filter size that breaks the rest of my system (not being 77mm), lack of corner sharpness, and not having a Pentax 'feel' to the images, all leaves me without one.

It’s really frustrating though because the 28-105 and I often don’t 'click' like the rest of my lenses do. It leaves me just shooting less in that range, while I happily tote my 70-200 DA* around.
