    Indeed, it was featured at Photokina 2006 in Cologne, Germany, this week. I wonder what's next - 18-300mm?

    Got this lens earlier this year.
    I find it extremely convenient for travel, being able to frame my photos from wide-angle to pretty good zoom in a split second without the need to change lenses.
    Downside is it's very slow, and you definitely need a tripod indoors.
    It's perfect for me as I travel quite a bit, hate carrying heavy lenses, and take most of my photos outdoors.
    You can see the photos I've taken with it in my recent trip to Angkor.

    Update can mean the existing stocks drop price, or can wait to get the extra 50mm coverage from the new lens.
