Re: There can be only one...

Totally agree. The 8-16 replaced a Sigma 10-20. Besides not being able to use filter, the next issue is the relatively slow aperture but not a deal breaker though. Here are some pictures taken just in the last two weeks in Spain.

No, NOT Highlander! The 8-16mm!

It outperforms any of its sisters (the Sigma 10-20's) or neighbors (Sigma12-24, Tammy10-24 etc.) in both reach, sharpness and quality. The only contender is Pentax's own 12-24 which at least on paper seems to have better corner and edge performance but a lot less reach on the wide side.
