Works very nicely

Excerpt: This lens works very nicely when shooting wildlife with a Pentax K-50. I am amazed how well very tightly cropped photos hold up with this combination. Autofocus is sometimes an issue in some situations for me, but I am able to switch easily to manual focus to get the shot. I normally shoot RAW+jpeg.
Summary: Great lens! However, having two lens with different range makes me want to just get a lens that covers every lens. Its not easy to constantly changing the lens when you want to take pictures. The lens itself is great though!
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.
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: 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.
