The lens I am refering to is a 55mm diameter, just make sure it is a f3.5 constant and has the Macro switch. It will not be your expected 17-50mm, but its definitely is a nice sharp lens. I do not find it bulky, but that is a very personal appreciation...

I am not aware of any MF lens that could match your 17-50mm wish, though.


Yes, I was afraid there wouldn't be any.

How much should I expect to pay for a 30-55 ? $50-ish ?

I need to think about this lens... I am afraid 30 mm is still too narrow for landscapes.
