I gave one a going over at Jessops with a Canon Rebel XT400. JPEGs straight out of the camera were a tad soft but post processed the results looked quite good.

Not having used the XT400 before, it was on default metering and I'm not sure if it focused that well at 'infinity' - it may have been a function of the focing arrangement taking the nearest object.

IntrepidWalker,

I still believe this is one of the best superzooms available for Pentax. (and maybe for canon to )

I've heard that the 18 - 250 might be better, not that I'm going to change one of these is more than enough in my glascontainer. :roll:

I don't believe that it's worth an extra £100 for the extra 50mm.

When I checked out the 'Tamron 18-200mm', I commented to the salesman that I hadn't realised that they had started to mark digital lens as 28-300 instead of, as in 35mm terms, 18-200. Well, they haven't - they had actually given me a 28-300mm.

With the Tamron 18-200 fitted to the Canon XT400 with focusing set to centre, I retook a number of shots and the focus at far distance is fine. Shots straight out of the camera (depite DP Review praising Canon as SUPER SHARP JPEGS) are still a tad soft but once post processed, they look pretty good.

Might just splash & grab one if I can negotiate a good deal.

Chromatic abberation (or lack of it) also looks good
