Well, I think I am at the end of the road with Adorama. I will send one final Email regarding the hood for the 70-210 lens, but I think my association with Adorama is at it's end. The last email I...

I'm not sure I would have accepted a Sigma lens as equal to a Tamron LD XR lens, but maybe if it was an EX lens I would. ( I am partial to Tamron though)

I got the email confirmation and it seems...

Jim,

I appreciate that. I'm not looking for anything except to get my stuff back. An error is excuseable, but not answering emails or returning telephone calls isn't. I just don't see any effort...

Just an update on the Adorama purchasing dept. and their [lack of] professionalism. It's been about a month since I sent in my lenses and I still don't have all of them back. I've been promised them...

I'll probably just Ebay them. I didn't really want to pack and ship a dozen times, so instead I now get to do it 13 times- lol. I may even not sell a couple, it's always nice to have a spare 50mm and...

On Adorama's purchasing Dept.,sending in the lenses wasn't worth the effort. I sent in a dozen lenses, and the buyer offered me $100. Their fair market value should be between $500 and $600, I can...

I'd think that new Fuji with the infra-red and ultraviolet imaging would be a good way to go for capturing ghosts. They can't hide from every spectrum and luckily that lens mounts to any camera.

I don't have anything against that 24-85 Minolta zoom, it looks to be a nice lens. It may even suit me better than the one I bought last night, but I wasn't going to pass up that lens for under $150...

70-200 wouldn't work for me for a standard zoom though.

I have considered the 18-50 Tamron, it would leave a gap in my coverage ( 50-70mm) in bright glass, but it does more closely match my ideal...

As an old timer, weight in a lens doesn't really bother me much (to a point). I bought the 7d over the 5d mostly for it's balance and in hand feel- which its weight is a significant part of.

Ok, there are now a few decent (or better) choices for a standard zoom. I'm looking real hard at both the KM 28-75 f2.8 and the Tokina 28-70 (or 80) AT-X zooms. (there are several of the Tokina zooms...
