Anirut J: For me, this lens would be a heaven-sent. I do a lot of photo-journalism type of work where it's all about military exercise actions, moving in from far away and suddenly running into confine space. Everything gets so dynamic. I don't have all that time to change the lens. (I've done a lot of lens changing while running with the troops.) I've lost a lot of photo opportunities because of lens change, let alone dust getting onto the sensor.

I know full well that the IQ will be so-so, if not out right bad. But, hey, there's no such thing as a free lunch. We'll have to sacrifice something for something.

But ... what about Pentax mount? Will there be any? Or, will Pentax get Tamron to do a re-badged? Keeping fingers crossed.

yabokkie, you said, "a camera man usually carries two or three bodies on foot, with 24-70/2.8, 70-200/2.8, and 300/2.8 or 400/2.8 lenses ..."

Try carrying all that when you have to be patrolling with the troops in tropical forests, running amongst trees, dodging thorny plants, etc. and staying quiet as well.

Seriously, you'll learn to appreciate the lower IQ of super-zooms once you're in a demanding situation where you have be as light as possible and as versatile as possible. Oh, carrying you own water bottles, too.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

Well ... Just use the right tool for the right job.

There's nothing to preach (or brag about), really. It's simple common sense that doesn't require any 'big names' to tell us what to do.

A big thanks to everyone for your concern with the floods in Thailand. The industrial estate where Sony is located has been much affected yesterday. I don't know about the factory itself, but the area is now flooded, expecting may be upto 2 meters of water. (Note: emphasis on MAY BE). I'm here braced and ready for the impact at home which can occur anytime.

Thanks again for all your concerns. God bless.

On Asian Prayer in the Prayer challenge (2 comments in total)

As a Thai (South East Asian), may I say that this lady is not in a prayer. With this mood, she's either saying "welcome" or "thank you". This gesture of "Whai" (a Thai word) does not always mean prayer. It is a gesture of respect. I have nothing against the picture, just wanting to share some cultural understanding.

Thanks for your comments. The subject (and the song itself) may be a bit too abstract and philosophical to be understood by the general masses.
