Watch out seller very irresponsible when it comes to delivering

  • Summary: Very, VERY poorly shipped in a padded envelope. Inside the envelope was the original retail box which was not in a reenforced shipping box. The retail box was so smashed and ripped that it could not be taped together or repaired.

  • Summary: I love this lens. When I go out and shoot events, it is in my bag. When I have to travel compact, this is the lens that is first in and last out. I have no complaints about this lens. A great buy at a very fair price.

  • Summary: First of all, I must establish that I am a beginner, not a professional or even a dedicated photographer. However, I am a very enthusiastic and meticulous aficionado.

  • Summary: for a kit lens a very good lens. High contrast and nice colors, I tested it wide open and stopped down to f8. I compared with a tree photo against the sky (without leaves).Between 24 and 55 corners are very sharp,too. In combination with k-x CA's disappearing nearly totally.
  • Pros: very sharp if stopped down a few
  • Cons: very small CA's

Good starter lens

KAREN E TORRELLA, Amazon

  • Summary: Works well for basic, close range photographs. Affordable and better than the older 18-55mm. I'm happy with the purchase, but now I'm already drooling over some more expensive, powerful lenses.

  • Summary: Good lens but probably not quite as sharp as my old 50mm f/1.4 Pentax prime. Very versatile though. Used for about 10000 images so far.

Pentax Lenses are Quality Lenses at an Affordable Price

W. D. Howell, Amazon

  • Summary: I switched from Nikon to Pentax, because I wanted a rugged camera that has a decent sensor. Nikon has those of course, at a starting price of about $1800.00, I purchased my K5 used for $600.00.

great lense

Joe Zannella, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: This is the first auto-focus lens I've had, mounted on a pentax and I am quite pleased. Low cost, lightweight, good quality. It has become my primary lens for just about any work, vacation and portraits. The only time I put a big lens on is to capture some critters in the backyard at a distance.
