Summary: An excellent all around lens for the Pentax digital SLR camera system. I'll leave it to the professional rating services to handle the technical data. I have used it in a wide range of applications and it has performed flawlessly.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Pentax fan; even more so now that they are free from the clutches of Hoya and now part of Ricoh. This IS Pentax's standard 18mm-55mm shipped with most Pentax DSLRs and it does perform well. That said, if you are really into photography, even a beginner, there are far better 18-55mm lenses out there for the same price point. Pentax actually makes other 18-55mm which are better quality.
