  • Excerpt: If you are buying a new camera, get the kit with the 18-135 included. You'll be glad you did. Super convenient, small size, great bokeh, excellent auto focus, excellent flare control and it's weather resistant. Sharpness is fine for a zoom lens and amazing considering the range.
  • Pros: Autofocus, compact
  • Cons: Not a usual pentax filter size.

  • Excerpt: Alright, i was looking for a lens that was weather resistant. Fixed limiteds are not, and pentax offers few choises to go with their amazing WR bodies unless you dont mind carrying alot of weight and paying alot of money.
  • Pros: Simply put, it is good
  • Cons: No internal zoom

  • Excerpt: I recently upgraded the body of my Pentax and wanted to also upgrade the lens above what normally comes in a package. This lens now gives me the technology that matches the body and covers a gap between two lenses I already own. Great purchase!
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable
  • Cons: Bulky

  • Excerpt: Chose this lens to bundle with my K-50 and havent regretted it. Its a compact and sharp lens and acts great as a walkaround especially if you're on holiday. AF is very accurate (in good light). Found sharpness to be decent across the whole zoom range and is very very sharp around F8. Ok maybe some softness in the corners at the long end of the zoom but nothing dramatic. Only real downside for me is the low light performance, where it was struggling to lock focus.
  • Pros: WR, Silent and quick AF, Great range, Quickshift
  • Cons: Low light performance

  • Excerpt: I was originally attracted to this lens because of the sharpness. I take photos at camps-for neglected and abused foster kids and in the past the 18-55 lens was just a bit short in some cases. This lens has enough telephoto that I should be able cover everything without having to change the lens.
  • Pros: Quiet and very fast focus. Very good sharpness
  • Cons: Vignetting in some cases
