    You might want to check with K-13 on 2nd level peninsular, saw they have the tamron 28-300 before but can't remember which version.
    Thanks for the info. Will drop by & take a look.
    Wonder if there's difference in image quality between the 2 ver?

    Went down to Penisular/Funan just now.
    Yes K-13 have the Tamron 28-300 but the guy is not sure of the version, A06 or A061?

    After several calls to Bally Foto, finally got the price of Tamron 18-250, no more $640 but $650. I confirmed over the phone have stock & price include GST. OP & K-13 quoted $680.
    I then rushed down & was about to buy & when I asked about the warranty if it's 3yrs from JEL, the guy said is for export, meaning no warranty. Of cos no one will pay for $30 cheaper minus the 3yrs warranty. Wasted my time to rush down.
    Even their no-warranty Tamron 28-300 is going at $535 where the Mass Sales forum only $350.

    Yes, I did tell the K-13 sales guy about the "DI" thing but he don't seems to know & he's busy with a foreigner, so didn't check.

    Found that there's a Samsung version of 18-250.
    Wonders how's the image quality compared to Tamron/Pentax?
    I suppose both Tamron & Samsung doesn't have the quick-shift feature.

    Pentax 18-250 doesn't have the quick-shift feature either.

    I just googled & you are right. All the while I thought Pentax DA lenses will have this feature
