    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    I just can't pop the price right now for it, I know it's still a good deal but.......arghh!! I am waiting to jump on my 70 - 200mm, and I am watching another lens that is going to be around $300.00 at least, I have a price limit on it also, and did you see there is a Tamron 200 - 400mm listed also, but seems to be running toward the high side. Will watch and wait for another 24-105, but might wind up with a 28 - 105 old style KM. it is always something!!

    Okay ...I'm done announcing glass on here. LOL Someone should have gotten that one. Unlike many other offerings, that one was actually useful. Oh well.

    We enjoy hearing your suggestions.... duh.... why do you think everyone here has the Tamron 70-300/4-5.6? And Sean and I have the 50/1.7 and 17-50/2.8. We do what we can! And for some strangggggeeee reason.... we all have this Sony branded lens that's 18-70/3.5-5.6 don't know why....

    This was exceptionally cheap ... compared to what I paid recently for the same lens. Deals come and go, I suppose. Unfortunately, the timing usually sucks ... on that I agree.

    Too bad we can't get a refund for the kit monstrosity. LOL ... I could use the extra $199.
