Excerpt: Buen lente de kit, colores y contraste muy Pentax. Calidad de construccion basica, pero solida. La apertura de diafragma es pobre, pero suficiente. El enfoque es correcto y bien combinado con el iso puede dar muy buenos resultados. El parasol cumple muy bien con su funcion.
Excerpt: I started using my girlfriends camera with this lense 5 years ago - knowing nothing about it. But i didnt consider it to be great. Soon I realized I am having a great basic lense usefull for almost everything, and I still have it today.
Excerpt: This lens is very sharp at f8 and beyond. This isn't a low light lens but most of you all probably knew that. At 18mm and 55mm it isn't the best but anywhere in the middle is good. I've done some landscape images at 18mm at f11 with pretty good results.
Excerpt: 1, never depend on the wide end, especially 18mm, not really usable because of CA and you will see blur just not far away from the center. I suggest buy a sigma 10-20 to make up the wide end if you also want a super wide lens.
Pros: sharp from 24-55, light, compact, very useful focal range
Cons: wide end very bad (CA, blurry at corners), slow but expected at this price, build quality can be better
Excerpt: Sharpness, aberrations and bokeh vary according to the focal length, so no numeric evaluations from me this time. At 35mm my copy rivals the 35Ltd for sharpness, has less distortion (none at all!) and chromatic aberrations (also none).
Pros: great at 35mm, Quick Shift Focus, size/weight, build quality, price
Cons: corner aberrations at the wide end, "dullness" at the long end, six blade aperture
