And let's not forget, the 24-70 is a rebadged Tamron 15-30, while the 15-30 is a rebadged Tokina 24-70...

I bet customised rather than rebadged... the common think - and easy to check, Pal - being the optical formula.

Are you serious? In another thread they said it's not.

Really? Well, I would not bother if Tamron would rebadge Pentax lenses to Tamron lenses sold at a cheaper price, it happened that my Tamron lenses are as good as non rebranded Pentax lenses.

A closer look at those focal lengths would have answered that...

The camera manufacturers are design and assembly outfits. Almost all parts are made by subcontractors. Some mix up this with rebadging which is something entirely different...
Ok I see now, a Tamron lense rebranded Pentax, it's like Ricoh products rebranded Pentax then :-) ( am I excluded from the forums now? )

Yep. There's no unintentional mistake in that post

I keep my fingers crossed for a modern F*600 f4 My friend has the Nikon 600 f4 - worth what he paid for it - sharp, fast focusing etc.

I am sure there would be some arm wrestling in the home front but I am guessing I would save and get it.

I don't have the cash in hand but I'm willing to save up. Wonder what that would cost now?

I have had remarkable success with FA*300 F2.8 and 2x Tammy PZ TC and the HD 1.4TC for less length...Hence no 560DA. APSc buys me a smidge of time...

Once again.. Who cares if the new K lenses are Tamron, Sigma, Pentax, Tokina, etc.. as long as are good lenses that deliveres great IQ and are well build IS OK. I still dont get why people worry if the new K lenses are branded or rebranded.
