I was set to go with a Pentax 16-45 F4, went to my camera store and looked at it.

It may be a good lens, but the quality was not good imho, it felt cheap.

I compared it to a Tamron 17-35 and there was no comparison in my mind. I've read all the reviews and the 17-35 is a good optic, so I got it.

I was also in the mood for a long end small telephoto so I purchased the Tamron 28-300 F3.5-6.3 ... I know it doesn't get the rave reviews but it is more than enough for me.

The last two lenses will be the Tamron 90 macro F2.8 and the 28-75 F2.8, two very fine lenses, and these with the 17-35 will be used 90 % of the time

Now all I need is another job to pay for this stuff ;-)
