I agree with you on this one rfortson. I was recently at a fashion show last weekend with my K10D and K100D backup with me. At ISO800, I find my K10D noisier than the K100D.

thank you guys for your inputs. Based on the information I have gathered on the net, it seems that the sigma 530 is better than the 360 in terms of performance and functionality.

i am shopping around for my first flash on my K10D. i decided to take the pentax 360 for budget reasons. i encountered online about the Sigma 530 DG Super and the Sigma 530 DG ST. Any difference between the two? do you have any experience using these flash?

thanks.

I just purchased a used Zenitar FE lens yesterday and played with it all night. This is one awesome lens and very sharp too! Crude but well built.

It does not however give me that whole fisheye effect for the fun factor but as a WA lens it really serves it purpose. It seems to me I will be selling my Sigma 17-70 lens soon.

Is this lens compatible with the K10D?

Fisheye MC Zenitar-K (Pentax) 16mm f/2.8

Additionally, does anybody here have purchased from the vendor provided on the link? Any comments?

Thanks.

thank you all for your inputs. as usual, it is very helpful.

@Ash - i love also love to shoot wide and i am evaluating the wide angle lens that you and heather have recommended.

i am saving up for a 50-135mm for next year so i am looking to purchase one more cheap wide-angle lens this year. we are approaching the "ber" months and i would love to take wide angle shots during the holiday season.

as soon as i'll find a reasonably priced wide-angle lens i'll sell my sigma.

hi folks!

ever since i got my tamron 28-75 f/2.8, i rarely use my sigma 17-70mm. the sigma is my go to lens since i got it but now the tammy seems to have taken its place. i still use the sigma because of its wide end but other than that i used the tammy a lot more often. should i sell the sigma and get a wider lens? if not, do you see any other advantage between the tammy and the sigma other than the wide end?

please advise. thanks.

The store where I ordered called me up today and said that my 28-75 is ready for my perusal. Do you guys have any tips on how to check if I have a good copy of the lens? How to check for sharpness, etc?

thanks!

Based on the list you provided, below are my recommendation:

DA 18-250mm - i don't own it (yet) but i have tested one. it gets a good review as an all-around lens
Sigma 17-70 - owned it and loved it

As for the other lenses on the list, I have not done my research nor even tried one.

Heather and Troy, thank you for your inputs.

If I have the 28-75, i was planning to part with my 17-70 and replace it with the Sigma 10-20mm. I don't know if that would be a wise decision considering what my 17-70 have contributed for the past few months.

If i grab the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 instead of the Tamron 18-250mm 3.5-6.3, will I end up kicking myself on the arse afterwards?

I shoot both portrait and landscape on different light situations.
My current lenses are the following:

Kit Lens
Sigma 17-70
Pentax 50-200mm
Pentax 50mm 1.4

What is a good lens for Night Club situations wherein there is extremely low-light and lot of people moving around?

Appreciate the inputs. Thanks!
