Summary: This is my go-to lens. The optics are beautiful, although it does vignette a bit at the edges when extended. The Pentax lens coating offers great protection, and after several years of use without taking great care of it, it's still unscratched and works perfectly.
Summary: Great lens ...Sharp images... Very fast.... Great price.......description is slightly misleading... buyer be aware... I received the DA-L lens not the DA lens... The difference is minor The DA lens which is listed has a metal mount and is the lens sold by Pentax.

Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Picture Quality
Summary: The lens itself is fine, however; I feel the vendor another deal site need to specify they are selling the kit lens (DAL) and not the DA lens which are technically better. They need to inform the buyer that there are some differences and not advertise as if they are the same.
Summary: I purchased this lens from Another Deal Site, and it is not what is pictured. The lens that arrived to me has a plastic lens mount and lacks the distance markers on the focus ring. However, it may be essentially the same lens from an image quality standpoint. Note: I have not taken any pictures yet.
Summary: Did not use it much because the camera that I have is to complicated, but the lens seems to be OK I switched it in favor of a super-zoom single fixed lens with auto focus. It is not for regular folks, it's more for dedicated photographers.
