    it depends on its use. 12-24 Is a good walkaround lens actually. I prefer it more than da 21 limited,.
    I dunno!!!
    It's banana-zero-neh. :)

    Hmmmm... well in retrospect, the reason why i gave up the sigma 10-20 for this lens is because it is more versatile and it can be used as a walkabout lens, doing double duty as landscape and also some enviromental portraits. I need the hood. I feel heck of alot safer with it on as i am less likely to bang the front element or even smudge it when i carry it around in crowded or cramped environments.

    So here's the latest update (just in case someone needs to get replacement stuff for their Pentax equipment): i brought my K-5 down to check on a small niggly problem. So i asked them if they can bring in the DA 12-24 hood for me. I gave Francis the lens hood designation and in a day or 2 he emailed me back to give the quotation after checking with Pentax Japan. It was $35 with GST. Considering that B&H may only charge around USD 18.00 but shipping charges is already around USD 40.00, i said OK.

    Useful info if you guys ever need any thing replaced.

    I lost one of the the Strap D-ring Covers on my K-5 too and asked Emjay for a quote. That little tiny thing costs $25.00 plus GST Got it anyway...

    That's a good idea, especially since i only lost one, not 2. i could have used it as the template... unfortunately i committed to the order liao.

    But it is true. You have lenses, bodies and other accessories that Emjay don't even know how to acquire.
