Excerpt: I can't add any unique insights about this lens. It is one of my favorites due to its color rendition and overall sharpness. I have found that clear skies look like I have used a polarizer, which of course would not be wise at its extreme wide angle range.
Excerpt: I like this lens very much. I bought it specifically, to take photos of vintage vehicles at outdoor shows. I attend quite a few and I would estimate in the years that I've owned it, I must have taken thousands of pictures with this lens.
Pros: sharpness throughout focal range, robust construction
Excerpt: Reality check: I have tried this lens on both my kx and k5IIs. Initial thoughts are that it's not the tack sharp marvel that so many make it out to be. Don't get me wrong, it's a good lens, nice n wide for Landscapes and architecture.
Excerpt: I would rate this lnes very high in it's class. I have a Tamron 10-24mm and the Pentax totally out shines the Tamron. The difference is very noticeable. I used the Pentax 12-24 mm for architectural photography while my Tamron was in for repair under warranty.
Excerpt: I tried the Sigma 10-20 for a week and preferred the 12-24. K5 also can auto-adjust distortion so you don't have to do it post edit. While not WR, construction feels solid, moreso than some of my other Pentax lenses.
