Summary: I just got this lens for a K30 and they go together great. It is a bit different than Nikon and Canon lenses as this lens has no m/af on it as it is on the camera but it takes sharp pictures. This lens is very small and light for it's size and it is light as it is plastic.
Summary: This is an excellent general lens for my K-30. I use it just as well with my K-X. All of Pentax Lenses for the most part are upwards - interchangeable. It just required a little tweaking to use the older lenses from my K-1000.
Summary: The lens is great, in perfect working condition. The only negative is the it was advertised as a metal mount lens. The one I received was one of the "L" or light, plastic mount lens. But it works. Thank you.
Summary: Prior Generation Kit lens for my new K500 DSLR and very inexpensive, including hood and caps. Arrived in perfect and seemingly untouched condition, as in never used, and very quickly. Quite satisfied with the entire transaction and item
A very light and compact good quality lens at a very low price

Summary: I have my first ever DSLR which is the Pentax KR. I would have preferred the entry level two other more popular brands with the same price range, but my searches in the internet in 2012 suggested that I would go for the KR.
