    I think any overseas trip for this yr may not be likely due to my work situation for now...under probation..


    btw, (I know this qst shdn't be asked...else will face the firing squads, but just want to confirm)
    What's the market rate for Tamron 17-50 f2.8 Non VC brand new set with 3 yrs local warranty? The rates I got so far is ~$600.

    Equote from Cathay I got in June was $577 excluding gst. But then again, they can actually absorb it. try tk or ms color.

    I think cost is also an issue when I'm thinking of replacing my kit lens (instead of repairing it....if possible, didn't want to spend too much on the replacement)

    I think I already try to say that tamron is only good for macro lenses. Their normal lens range is not impressive.

    You can consider tokina or sigma instead. Seriously.... Don't save a few bucks only to get just a 'ok' quality lens.

    Sigma 18-50 is not constant f2.8

    Sigma 17-50 is constant f2.8

    Read somewhere that Parisilk selling sigma 17-50 f2.8 at $700. How true??? Check it out.........

    I think Sigma got a 18-50 f2.8 version....

    btw, the Sigma 17-50 you referring to is it 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM? seems like the only version I find for this focal length.



    Sigh...choose 1 lens also so headache...

    The Sigma 17-50 OS HSM....1.1k....almost double of Tamm...But after hearing that that users of tam 17-50 are "hunters" at night, really scares me...cos I hate to hunt at night. My last experience of MF with 18-55 at night is horrible.

    Anyway, requested for quotes from the various shops liao...(thou I don't expect MS to reply, they haven't been replying as of late)
