Also the sigma 10-20 is not a 2.8 it's slower then That I think 4-5.6?

He had it up for $325 the first time on a "buy it now". I see no one wanted it for that price, but then again you could have got a new one for $338. I'll keep my eyes on it although I'm a little worried about the dust particles inside the lens.

The lens seems to invite internal dust. I have quite a bit in mine. It is disconcerting, but I have not noticed any effect on image quality.

You have to be ready to move fast on these. Once bidding starts, the BIN goes away.

The bidding is just at $11.50 with 2 bidders. You think it would have disappeared with that few or that low of a price?

Set by the seller. Often set to disappear as soon as there is 1 bid.

It will sell for between 250-300

Just received my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 from FedEx today.
Still have a few questions about it though. Like why does the camera the f/ reports it being 4.0, or 3.8 and so on. I thought it stayed f/2.8.

it all depends on what setting you have the camera in.

in auto it can change to pretty much any number the camera thinks it needs to be at.

I usually shoot in AV and I control the f#. I rarely shoot at 2.8. The only time i do is when the situation calls for it. 2.8 is good for indoor shots and shots where you want good depth of field. If you look at the balloons shot i posted today it was @2.8.

So the short answer is no it does not always stay at 2.8. constant 2.8 just means it has the ability to stay at 2.8 through the entire zoom range of 17-50.

It *can* stay at 2.8. If you are shooting in auto mode, it will still choose the aperture. I believe the range is 2.8 to 32.

In aperture priority mode, you can choose to lock it in at 2.8.
Though you wouldn't want to use that aperture all of the time.
