Pentax DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 ED AL IF SDM Review

What Digital Camera
2 January 2009
  • Summary: The most expensive of the Pentax lenses in this category 16-50mm did not always deliver everything that it promised. In particular, the f/2.8 aperture is more for bright viewing than it is for top-quality imaging.
  • Pros: Nice balance and robust feel
  • Cons: Slightly stiff and jerky zoom action
