Personally, I prefer the newest version of the Sigma 18-250 zoom. Independent tests rate it higher than the Tamron/Pentax 18-270 zoom. My favorite part except that I don't have to change lenses all the time is that it close focuses down to 18 inches and is surprisingly sharp when closed down to f11. Last, it was a bargain at $351.11 from Hunt's last May...It is an almost perfect match to my K-30...

:)Just saw the What Digital Camera.org review of medium priced DSLR cameras and they determined that the Pentax K-30 was best overall. Well worth a look....

How soon on the comparison test between the Pentax 18-135, Sigma 18-135,18-200 (new) and Sigma 18-250? Wonder if Tamron will ever produce an 18-270 Pentax mount or maybe Pentax might 'borrow it" from Tamron and label it as their own. It has happened before.........

Why not include the Sigma 18-250 f3.5-6.3 as it is only priced at $479.99 and might be worth the extra $80.00? Too bad tamron doesn't make the 18-270 in the Pentax mount..

My mistake, I didn't even check what month the issue was. I realise it must be the April edition, not March?

:)The K-5 was on the front cover. Maybe the mags sent to subscribers has a different cover. They have been known to do that !!

It had to have been the March issue. I read the whole magazine at my local Barnes and Noble. I was suprised that it was on the stand so early.

The reviewer raved about how rugged the camera was as the NYC area has been indunated with many snow storms and cold. A 16-50 WR was used as the main lense.

They gave it a four and a half star rating, a first for Pentax.


They also reviewed the new 35mm. f-2.4 lens and found that it was nearly as good as the 35mm. f-2.8.
