Digital Cameras & Accessories - Citiwide Online - Tamron SP AF 60mm F/2.0 Di II LD 1:1 Macro Pentax Mount

I have bought before from them and they were reliable, but I keep emailing to confirm they hae this lens and they don't reply...
I wrote to them also and this was their reply:

"Dear Customer,
Thank you for your message.
I confirm you that we don't have Tamron 60mm Pentax mount in stock.
Please kindly visit our website for other lens.

Kind Regards,

same can be said about Sigma regarding the 150mm (no Pentax mount). and I prefer it more than the 180mm, IQ-wise. but might consider the 180mm due to focal-length use relevance.

Yeah, I know Sigma doesn't have the 150 in K. However, they have 3 macro lenses in K verses 1 for Tammy. I suggested that as a way to make the point to Tammy.

you forgot about the Tamron 90.

anyway, as your point implies, Sigma has a lot to offer as compared to Tamron, even if we are going to exclude the other pseudo macros or semi-macros that the Sigma have. I think Pentax should do the same, atleast in the medium telephoto end.

they got the 35,50, 77 (although not a macro can be used with a diopter and could still produce excellent results), and 100. so Pentax lacks something longer.

Actually, I said 1 for Tammy, the 90 is the one macro in K mount. Although Sigma has 4 true macro lenses in K-mount, 50mm, 70mm, 105mm, 180mm. They also have the wide angle primes that are close focusing.
