Pentax K-3, Tamron 28-75/2.8 XR Di, test with direct sunlight. Tamron has 7 aperture blades, sunstroke is nice when f14 aperture is used:

These are not the greatest K-1 + 28-75 images, but perhaps they may be useful.

At the long end:

Pentax K-1
TAMRON SP AF 28-75mm F2.8 XR Di
/4.0 75.0 mm 1/125 ISO 12800 Flash (off, did not fire)

At the wide end:

Pentax K-1
TAMRON SP AF 28-75mm F2.8 XR Di
/3.5 28.0 mm 1/160 ISO 6400 Flash (off, did not fire)

FWIW, there are about 200 K-1 / Tamron 28-75 photos in the Flickr album that relates to the last shot. Note: album is mildly NSFW.

Thanks, looks pretty good! Lol at the link content. Not what I was hoping for with the NSFW designation!

Now I can post my K-1 & 28-75 samples too.
Seems pretty good but I have not done any critical tests.
I like this FL better on FF than crop.

It is an f/2.8 lens, whether that is 'fast enough' depends on how fast you need it to be.
AF is reasonably fast and accurate, not stellar, but good for the money. But it is a screwdrive lens, so it's not exactly silent. You would be getting disapproving looks in a quiet church.
IQ is similarly good but not superb. Whether it is good enough depends on how much you are charging if at all...

Thanks for your answer. I have already tamron 70-200 it is screwdrive I think sound is ok not bother a lot and it s not too loud.I have checking sample photos which was taken with tamron 28-75 I really like the quality and sharpnes.im an amateur photographer and getting into a professional.I think for first step tamron 28-75 looks like more than enough.
