Wanna see how sharp the Tamron 17-50 is wide open?

Sharp enough to hurt you!

Shot at 50mm f/2.8

No, it is in Tucson AZ. I haven't seen any Cholla cactus in OK. At least not where we live.

Venturi, actually we are planning a flight later this week if the weather is good. The plan is to fly the 14mm lens on the k10d this time.

So is that Tamron better than the Pentax 16-50? I keep hearing bad things about it and wouldn't mind a Tamron, but I really don't know anything about them. Are they better than Sigma?

Wow nice, that's going to take a whole lot of Earth from 100K MSL.

Nice jab there, Mark.
