Here's a review. http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/...4_3p5-5p6_n15/

I'm torn between something like this lens, or the Pentax 12-24 for architectural shots. It's $449 at http://www.buydig.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=TM1024NA but only the Canon and the Nikon versions are available. The cheapest I've found on the Pentax is $699.

It was suppoosed to be released for Pentax in June 2009, but I haven't seen it yet.

The dpreview review of the Sigma 10-20 has some comparative comments on the Tamron and Sigma. Each has advantages and shortcomings - I think I would prefer the Sigma which can be gotten for around $400 US.
