  • Summary: Looks to be a Pentax lens. Was disappointed that there was not a lens hood included and the lack of a Manual. I would send it back, but I no longer have the original unmarked box it came in. I took a couple of pictures with the lens and it seems to be working ok.

Good handling, but not sharp!

  • Summary: Do you like the kit 18-55mm lens? The one that probably shipped with your Pentax camera? If you think the overall image quality of the kit 18-55mm lens (called the DA-L 18-55, or the DA AL, or the DA, WR, all of which share the same optical formula) is good, then you'll probably like this lens.

Good starter lens, so-so image quality

  • Excerpt: With an APS-C sensor, as on my Pentax K-30 and many DSLRs, this is a mild wide to serious tele (it would be way wide to mild tele for a full frame). My experience agrees with the consensus of reviews I've read, that the features are nice but image quality is less than one might hope.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Quality construction, Water resistant
  • Cons: Moderate Image Quality

Not as good as it should be

  • Excerpt: The structure and operation of this lens are without issue, my major observation is that this lens creates significant vignetting on all f/stops below f/11 on my K-5! Here's how to check this and prove to yourself for this lens or any other. 1.

  • Pros: Хороший диапазон фокусных.
  • Cons: Очень большой разброс разрешения по полю кадра, притом несимметричный, особенно на открытой диафрагме. Плохая светосила. В общем в диапазоне фокусных китового (18-55) объектива ничем не выигрывает. Жалею что купил его за 22т.р. Избавился от него. Если такой экземпляр достался только мне, то очень...

Obiettivo solido e robusto, qualità ottica discreta.

  • Summary: Ho acquistato questo zoom in abbinamento alla mia eccllente Pentax K-5, oltre un anno fa, L'ho preferito all'obiettivo standard 18-55, principalmente perché ha una buona escursione che lo rende un prodotto tuttofare, spaziante dal grandangolo equivalente ad un 27 mm (nel formato 35 mm, ossia quello...
  • Pros: Ottima costruzione, molto robusta .  Buona escursione focale .  Weather resistant .
  • Cons: Qualità ottica migliorabile .  Vignettatura alla massima lunghezza focale .

  • Summary: Après un an d'utilisation où il m'a très bien convenu, maintenant j'ai envie d'un 50 fixe bien plus lumineux que lui pour des photos d'intérieur et des portraits mieux piqués avec un meilleur bokeh . 135 c'est bien mais souvent insuffisant en extérieur.

  • Summary: Pour vous dire la vérité, je suis un peu lassé des commentaires sur les objectifs "tout en un", dont semble raffoler certains possesseurs de reflex. A quoi bon acheter un appareil dont l'intérêt, le principe même, est de pouvoir changer d'objectif ? Quelque chose m'échappe !
