Re: Sigma 18-50mmf2.8 or Pentax 16-45mm to buy???

I have a Sigma 18-50/2,8. It is my walk around lens. I know for a fact that it is very well built. Mine survied a near two meter fall directly into the concrete. The filter thread isn't what it used to be, but it I was able to fit a filter on it, and it performes as new. The DS survived too

I also know that the hood does interfeer when using the in camera flash. Even when the hood is reversed it is visible sometimes.

Having the same dilemma, knowing what I know now, I would have waited for the DA 16-50/2,8
