Which one to get?
Feb 25, 2014

I have a K5 with Tamron 17-50 f2,8 Di LD. I have been looking for a second-hand telezoom for some time but there weren't any for sell in my area.

Now I can get Tamron 70-200 for 400€ or Pentax 50-135 for 500€ (produced 2012 so MAYBE updated SDM motor) and I am indecisive a bit. Have anyone used both of them? I would appreciate some comparision.

I shoot mainly portraits (PX better IQ?) and reports (Tamron faster AF). Photography is just my hobby for now. I must admit that DA* is quite tempting but is it worth 100€ more than Tamron which is a bang for buck (400€!!)?

Thank you...
