Overpriced? Nonsense. Not all f/1.8 lenses are created equal.
Finally people are seeing the value of stabilized fast primes. Over at Pentax, we've had this luxury for about a decade.These Tamrons look great, lovely sun stars as well.

WB is on the 4-way controller on the back. Metering used to be on the K5/K5ii, but is gone since. Knowing Pentax, there must be an easy way to get to it, other than digging into the menus.
you never know, this is Pentax!
When this camera arrives at my doorstep, i'll have the 31, 43, 77 and 200 macro in front of me: a big dilemma!
it is not unlikely. A patent they filed allows for a hybrid prism OVF/EVF. That would include a variable-reflection mirrr which could double as an ND filter. Donno if it's ready for production...
I always use auto mode, when i hand to camera to someone else. Very useful. Otherwise i have to start with explaining why i removed AF from the shutter button.... etc, etc....
"Also, is it true that it has a combination OVF and EVF?"That's speculation, but there is a patent."What lens system does this use?"K-mount, since 1975.

Mine too, and her 2 sisters as well!
Apparently it has the Tamron ring-type AF motor. Can't imagine why Pentax thought it would be a good idea to write "SDM" on the lens...
You forgot TAv, that's the coolest of them all!
Pentax flange distance is greater than Canon EF, so no, you can't adapt Canon lens to this.
Leica already has a mirrorless full-frame mount: the M mount, which has been in existance for the the biggest part of a century. Why come up with a second FF mirrorless lens mount?OK, it lacks...
the taxi will come from the other direction...
Thanks for the article, that was very pleasant and informative reading. It sounds like a very promising lens!
They put a ring motor in this one, but for strange reasons kept the SDM name. !?
Stunning shot!!! Well done!
Beautiful image, congrats!
