A good general purpose zoom from Pentax

  • Summary: The Pentax DA 17-70mm f/4.0 AL(IF)SDM lens is a better replacement for the standard kit lens. It has a wider range of focal length 25-105mm equivalent in 35mm film terms which provides everything from wide angle to moderate telephoto. It also has a wider aperture of f/4 throughout the range. It is a very sharp lens, almost as good as the more expensive DA*16-50mm and if anything better at wide angle. It is also smaller and lighter.

  • Summary: It has a constant large aperture/4 which is quite nice and the focal length can meet my daily need . I've heard that the focusing function is not so good, but as I tried, focusing is not bad.

Excellent all purpose lens

Peteroni, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought as am "everyday" lens for a K30. The range is perfect ( approx.26 -105mm in old money) for the great majority of the shots I take and I therefore chose this lens over the 18-135 feeling that the loss of far end telephoto was a worthwhile trade off against the mixed reviews that that lens has received. Great build quality, pin sharp images and great colour rendition.

Great lens, versatile

P. Srinivasan "A Person", Amazon

  • Summary: This lens has a very versatile range, from 17-70. You may be put off by the f4 aperture, but it is pin sharp wide open, unlike the sigma 17-70 at f2.8 which is sloppy and soft. It has some weather sealing, not for storms but for light rain it will be sealed. The mfd is quite small which is nice and it is sharp at all focal length, I have taken lots of great macros and landscapes with this lens. The price has been cut so it's a bargain.

QUALITY

  • Summary: I bought this lens as a standard zoom for the K-01 Pentax CSC. It works well with the camera with the quality I've come to expect from Pentax over the years. For those that want looks as well as capability then the combination of the lens and the new Pentax CSC is very good idea.I've also tried the lens on my K5 and it is pretty good there as well.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, IDEAL FOR K-01, Quick Focus, Rugged, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
