Re: pentax 17-70 or 16-50

No problem, I was hoping it would be like the 50-135 and not extend when zooming – I think I had also seen reports online saying it didn’t. It’s a pity that Pentax don’t have any images of the lens at 50mm on their website (apologies if they do and I didn’t spot them).

The sealing on the barrel looks very good even when at 50mm, my only concern is it does make it more noticeable/intrusive when used as a walk around lens.
