Thanks michael, I havent really handled those sigma or tamron models but for my longer shots I use an old tamron adaptall a19sp (I think) 70-200. Its almost easier to use than the dal18-55 and I certainly see more clearly. I might have been put off by the third party lenses because of my sigma 18-200 which obviously distorts at extreme focal ranges. but maybe I should think about the fast third party lenses.
It seems to me you should definitely "..think about the fast third party lenses..." as in some cases they will cost-effectively out-perform branded lenses for your purposes.


PS how high an ISO (and with what PP and for what display format) have you found acceptable with your Kx?
