  • Excerpt: Bought this lens used in almost perfect condition a few days ago so this is an early review. Also, I painstakingly adjusted the micro focus before use. On my camera it was a +6 which is pretty normal for this camera.
  • Pros: Wow, very sharp. Easy to handle. Pretty fast to focus.
  • Cons: Not as fast as HSM/Ultrasonic motor. Usual sound of screw drive.

It's a Traaap!!!

  • Summary: The lens I received was a DAL 50-200mm, not the DA. The title and photo depict the more robust, metal bodied DA lens; while the actual product is the DAL budget version made of plastic.

  • Excerpt: First of all this is a real DA WR lens, not a DAL that has been removed from a camera kit, be careful on other sites because they offer at similar price the less expensive kit lenses.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Picture Quality

  • Excerpt: I picked up this lens before I decided on which Pentax K-5iis or K-3 I was going to purchase.Weather Resistant,light weight and a zoom was a few of the main reasons. So far it's decent walk-around lens, I will be picking up either the Pentax 18-135mm or f/2.8 by Sigma or Tamron in a few weeks.The...

Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 ED SMC DA WR review by jamesm007

jamesm007, slrgear.com
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Rating this lens is hard. In general, yea its got soft spots and the DA55-300mm is much longer and sharper. However when compared to other APS/FF lens of 50-200mm or 75-300mm this lens is as good. Really better if you put a Sigma 70-300mm APO on a FF.
  • Pros: Just a tad bigger than DA18-55mm. Solid Build. Weather Resistant. Nice Range
  • Cons: It could be a bit sharper. But not bad

  • Summary: I am astounded at the quality for such a modest price. I have taken some amazing photos with this lens on my Pentax K50. The performance outshines other lenses that I've paid over twice as much for.

  • Summary: Product was not as shown in the ad. Product was not new from pentax, but was a white box out of a kit, and was missing the hood and warranty and instructions.
