Re: Alternative to Pentax 17-70/4

The only lens I know of that has a similar focal range and a faster aperture is the Sigma 17-70/2.8-4. But that's only faster at the wide end, not at the tele end.

With a 24-70/2.8 you will lose much wide-angle. I used a Pentax 16-45/4 and Tamron 28-75/2.8 years ago but replaced it with the 17-70/4 because I had to change lenses all the time. 24mm is wider then 28, but it still doesn't come close to 17.
