  • 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. If you don't do that for your lenses before reviewing and evaluating your lens you are selling yourself short.
  • Pros: Wow, very sharp. Easy to handle. Pretty fast to focus.
  • Cons: Not as fast as HSM/Ultrasonic motor. Usual sound of screw drive.

Great Lens for th Price, Speedy delivery

  • 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. B&H was great in delivering this fast regardless the season holidays and the lens price was very good for a great lens at this price point.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Picture Quality

  • 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.

The best lens for the price and quality

jmbow, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is good for this price especialy its a wr and also its very small. Some people say its sharp at f8 - f11 but mine sometime is little soft. i was gonna return but i found the sweet spot at f4-5.6 and desided to just kept it. The quality is very good also and it focus really fast outdoor and indoor. I recommend this lens to anyone who's looking for small light zoom lens and to pair with their wr camera.

  • Pros: Piece of junk...just awful, Pentax is DOOMED, etc...
  • Cons: Everything...just AWFUL...

Love this lens!!!

  • Summary: I'm a novice when it comes to cameras but since I got the Pentax K-30 I love taking pictures, My husband then got me the Da 50-200mm lens. It makes a big difference. I live in the county and can now take pictures of the wildlife with no problem of scaring them off. I'm so happy with what I can do so far I'm taking a photo class to see how much better I can really get. Having so much fun!

Great lens for this price point.

  • Summary: Fantastic lens! I have used this lens in dirt, dust, rain, and snow. It performs flawlessly. It is a fanstastic lens at this price-point. This lens has taken a beating. It has been dropped on the concrete and in the dirt...not an issue. Yes, it has flaws at max zoom as one would expect for a sub $200 lens, but in my humble opinion, its a great value and takes good pictures considering one can have it in inclement conditions!

Great lens for the amature photographer

Justin, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a advanced hobbyist photographer. I shoot RAW and manual at all times. This lens can certainly deliver in the sharpness realm. Colors are great! (but then again, pentax always nails the colors... just saying). I have not found any distortion or fringing in any of my images. Build quality is fantastic, feels very solid. It is much smaller than I was expecting, the same size of the 18-55wr. Pleasantly surprised! Very light weight... compact... tons of zoom!
