Summary: This lens do what is made for and I strongly recomanded this. Very fast delivering and I have one questions with other bayers: Did someone receive this item without original package and boy and also without user manual and varanty list? That I have to give only 4 stars.
Excellent lens at a very excellent price! Highly recommended…

Summary: This lens is surprisingly good. With a bargain basement price (I paid $137) one would expect average performance at best. However, once I put this lens on my K5IIs and shot about 50 test shots around our summer Saturday farmers market, I could sense that I was going to get some good results… focus was fast and very smooth (a good sign). My suspicion was confirmed when I reviewed the images in Photoshop CS6. Outstanding color, saturation and sharpness.
Summary: I was so sad when my Pentax KX fell on the ground and the lens broke, and I was so glad to find a reasonable prized replacement! It comes with the little hood as pictured in the second photograph.
