Great Lens - Great Price

Robert Stubblefield, Amazon
13 July 2014
  • Summary: I'm not a pro photographer and I don't pretend to be one. I needed a wide lens and as my wife and I hike in all weather conditions, and the weather resistant feature is the primary reason I purchased this lens. The price was right as well. The camera body is a Pentax K-30.

Great at 18mm, OK at 55mm; Weather Resistant

Marcus Censor, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: This lens came to me bundled with a new Pentax K-50. I hold onto it mainly for the 18mm side, which is pretty good for landscapes and architectural shots. Once you get up to 55mm performance seems to be average (f5.6) and not as sharp. The weather resistant feature is a plus.

Shines with the K3

CW, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this lens as a lighter weight, travel, weather resistant alternative to my Pentax 16-45mm F4, which according to various tests, should be sharper. Using www.photozone.de test site as a guide, I shot some test frames with the 18-55 at F8, between the 'sweet' focal lengths of 28-35mm.

Decent lens for the price.

  • Excerpt: Though I dislike the filter thread being 52mm, the lens is a great wide angle lens for shooting scenes outdoors, and great for using for creativity. I would suggest adding this lens to your kit just because the build is strong, and well.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Creep
