Good question!
You know, I'm not sure. Sometime they make special lenses for the two big guns, Nikon/Canon and not the rest. I guess you and I will have to go to the Tamron website to find out.

Beautiful shots, Jack. I can't decide which I like best. I love them all!

To answer the question about the 18-270 for Pentax, I just e-mailed Tamron this week asking that same question. The response was they did not have any word it would be made in the Pentax mount.

So, I'm still back to the Pentax or Tamron 18-250. I think the Sigma is out of my price range. I think I've decided on the Tamron but can't find one at a price I can get it. At least I got out of my system waiting for the 18-270 by Tamron.

I'm very happy with my Pentax 55-300. I did think of Sigma and Tamron, but decided against. I always feel that a lens made by the manufacturer for their line of cameras does not have any design compromise as a lens made to fit a number of makers cameras...may have. Whether it's Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Olympus...et al.

Years ago ('70's) I bought two Bushnell lens (W/A and telephoto zoom ) in a Pentax mount. I've regretted that decision ever since due to the poor performance of these lenses and ever since then, bought only the manufacturer's lens from the specific manufacturer.

I'm not saying that modern, good glass from aftermarket manufacturers isn't as good...just that I've been bitten twice and won't take that chance again.

I also realize that camera manufacturers have some of their 'own' lens made by aftermarket...Pentax does in a couple of cases..but I chose to get the lens designed by Pentax...not the aftermarket lens made by the aftermarket and then branded Pentax.

Well done, that lens has certainly shown it's versatility in these shots.
