Excerpt: Used this lense now for about 5 months. I love the quick Auto Focus. So far I have not had any issues with the SDM motor. Picture quality is outstanding. I also had the 16-85. sold on [[@]]. I just love the 2.8 on this lense. Once you get used to the size. You will be fine for almost every day use.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is truly outstanding! The optics are amazing (sharpness, contrast, colors...), as good as my prime limited lens. The quality of built is superb. I even like the size and weight of this lens that balances out well with the body of my camera (K5).
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Super sharp from 16 to 50, great for portrait or landscape, awesome in low light, street scenes, good carry around lens for all situations with professional output. Makes the average joe look like Ansel Adams.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: An excellent waking around lens, it's the equivalent of 24-70 for a full frame camera. This make it great of general purpose lens. It can be used for landscapes to portraits. The bokeh is excellent. The features and handling of the lens are excellent.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Have only recently bought this lens but so far it's been great. Prior to this I owned the well rated tamron equiv but was in need of a weather sealed option. The image quality and handling feels similar to the da*50-135 however I found it to be surprisingly smaller aNd lighter then reviews suggest!
