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
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 don't own this lens, but tried out the one my son got as a kit with his K30 on my K5. I only shot about 25 images (RAW), but am really impressed. Plenty sharp enough, vibrant colours, perfectly acceptable bokeh, and no serious aberrations in the real-world shots I took (no brick walls). There was some PF in one shot (115mm, f8), but only well off-centre. EDIT: I have now seen PF quite commonly, but only toward the longer focal lengths, and only well off centre.
Pros: Sharp, good colour, compact, quiet fast and accurate AF, WR
