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. Some of the newer ones don't work in reverse because they are made for the digital cameras and their more advance Electroic Connections. You will not be disappointed with this seller...If you are looking for a WR lense, this is not one of those.
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.
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. I did not regret my decision because of the enjoyable and good experiences I have had with the camera. With the KR came the DAL 18-55 kit lens with it.
