  • Excerpt: Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at this all purpose superzoom for use on Pentax digital SLR cameras that covers a range equivalent to 27 – 375mm on a 35mm camera.
  • Pros: Low distortion for a superzoom, Low CA levels, Impressive zoom range
  • Cons: Disappointing resolution at maximum aperture, Slow AF, Susceptible to flare

  • Summary: As I mentioned earlier, lenses with huge zoom ranges like this often result in compromise of some sort. It seems unfortunate in this case that the aspect of performance to lose out is sharpness at maximum aperture, which is how I believe a lens like this will be used most of the time.
