  • Excerpt: Most people who own this lens will have bought it as part of a kit with their Pentax SLR. Does the performance warrant upgrading to a higher spec lens? Gary Wolstenholme takes a look.
  • Pros: Excellent performance at 18mm, Low distortion, Low CA
  • Cons: Resolution at 35mm and beyond at maximum aperture, Slightly uneven distortion pattern may be difficult to correct for critical applications
