    if you lock it at F22 it can be controlled by the camera

    but it can also be adjusted manually for film bodies :bowdown:

    Yeah, thats too rich for my blood though. The Sigma 24-70 2.8 will have to do...I'm just waiting for the updated version to come out (I heard it's supposed to be around December)

    negative. no plans for a christmas ship. In fact, it is still being developed with no time frame for production yet.

    Aren't there usually "good" and "bad" copies from 3rd party lenses? I was thinking of testing out a few and picked whichever one looked good to me (at the store). Otherwise I might just go with the Tamron 28-75...I just would rather have the wide end instead of the 5mm in reach.
