  • Excerpt: I was realy surprised when i started to use this lens. I had heard some negative comments on this, but all of the negative aspects don't show up. I get more and more impressed every time i use it. Take good sharp photos, fast AF and easy to use with quick shift focus. Even good in low light with my K-30. WR is another positive aspect.
  • Pros: Best universal lens, WR, Fast AF, Quick Shift Fokus
  • Cons: Maybe the price....

  • Excerpt: I use this lens recently with my K-500. I can not compare it with a Canon 18-135 mm and I think this lens is much better. Feels good and quality workmanship. Gives very nice colors, sharp in its entire range, has nice bokeh, compact AF is very quiet and fast.
  • Pros: nice colors, nice bokeh, AF is very quiet and fast

  • Excerpt: I have a number of zooms, including the original Sigma 17-70 and a Pentax 18-55. This lens even beats both in most ways (including overall sharpness).
  • Pros: Relatively small, very good centre sharpness. Good AF, WR, build, and focal range
  • Cons: Corners 85 - 135, Corner CA at wider angles

  • Excerpt: Am really happy with this lens. Have produced some great shots - macros, landscapes and everything in between. It's a great beginner's and all rounder lens. Definitely recommended.
  • Pros: Happy with everything
  • Cons: wide open and shut right down it's a little blurry, but that's expected with any lens

  • Excerpt: I got this lens as a Christmas present in 2013 so I am guessing at the price paid. All I know is that it was bought off of eBay and it came in minty new condition, complete with all papers.
  • Pros: Solid construction, sharp, fast internal AF, quick shift, weather resistance
  • Cons: Heavy, no aperture ring, could use more vivid colors and deeper contrast
