Being mostly a zoom shooter I am always on the lookout for one and that one does look good, but for me I would want wider. I love my DA 18-135 but on the cheap side it's not. I have been trying to get a cheap copy of the SMC F 35-75 it's rated quite well and can be had for under $50 the thing stopping me is it's not wide enough


...It is better to burn a roll of film than curse the darkness. Equip. K30, Q7, DA PLM 55-300, DA 18-135, DA 35 f2.4, DA 50 f1.8, SMC-M 28 f3.5, SMC M 50 f1.4, Canon P&S S100 w/CHDK Beta, Panasonic DMC-GM5, Flickr:

My first SLR lens was a Pentax A 35–70 f4. (Constant aperture, not to be confused with the lesser f3.5–4.5 variety or 35–80 f4–5.6.) I still have it, but it's mechanically worn to such a degree I never use it, just keep it for old friendships' sake. Optically though, it's remarkably good and has a "macro" capacity that's not bad, either. You can find one on ebay pretty cheap every now and then, I'm having my radar up myself now that the FF body has been announced.

Edit/update: I just won an action for one, closing at 361 SEK (~42 USD, 39 EUR). Seller claims it is in "outstanding condition", hope it proves to be the truth.

You did a great job with the lens, mole. They all look nice to me. I recently bought the Sigma 17-50 and sometimes find it to be too narrow. It is on the heavy side, too. But, it has been taking great photos with the grandkids.
