PC Magazine
3 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA Star 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM is a significant quality upgrade compared with a standard 18-55mm kit lens, but it will cost you, and it's a bit soft at f/2.8.
  • Pros: Sharp from f/4 onwards. Weather sealed.
  • Cons: Expensive. Considerable distortion at 16mm. Soft wide open.
