Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 ED SMC P-DA review by wavefunc
22 August 2007
Summary: If you want a low-cost, small, and/or lightweight zoom for this range, then this is the perfect lens. The image quality isn't the greatest, but is as good as one could expect at this price and weight.
Pros: small and lightweight, very good image quality for the price.
Cons: If you want a low-cost, small, and/or lightweight zoom for this range, then this is the perfect lens. The image quality isn't the greatest, but is as good as one could expect at this price and weight. I got it because I wanted a telephoto zoom that I would be able to take on long hiking trips whe...

Summary: I bought this lens as a cheap way to cover the 100-200mm range and the 1:4 macro, not expecting much from it in the image quality department. I was very surprised by how well it performs, even at 200mm. Images are much shaper than I expected and the bokeh is not bad either.
Pros: affordable, very good for the price, decent bokeh, 1:4 macro
Cons: slow (f/4-f/5.6), seems fragile when fully extended

Summary: This a great zoom lens to use with the Pentax DSLRs. It's small and lightweight, inexpensive and gives good reults overall. It's a little slow and not the best near wide open, but I'm very glad it's in my camera bag. It's a little plasticky felling for my tastes, but it seems to be holding up fine.

Summary: Metal lens Mounts. Large rubber zoom ring. Quiet, quick & accurate auto focus. Quality of photographs very high for a kit lens and are comparable to much more expensive pro caliber zoom lenses. Good close focusing distance for macro shots (39.5" to 42.5" aprox) Quick shift AF/MF mechanism.
Pros: This is another very good & affordable Kit lens from Pentax
Summary: After considering several more expensive lenses in this zoom range, I decided to try the Pentax 50-200 for my K10D. I purchased the Pentax 16-45 for an all around lens and was impressed with the build and quality so my hope was that this lens would be a 'sleeper; for the price.
Pros: cost, size, weight, performance
Cons: a bit slow to focus but better than the Sigma in this regard.

Summary: This lens is a perfect companion to the 18-55mm kit lens. The price is not a good indicator of the performance of this lens. It is very light, compact and provides great optics. Its a little short on the 50mm end for a perfect walk-around lens, but it comes close.
Summary: hi, Amazing lens, great pictures just like to say £49.99 Jessops website or a good old fashioned Jessops shop.... come on amazon... not trying to undermine amazon at all its just cheaper there =]
Summary: Very light, versatile and easy to use with my K10 Pentax. Excellent results over the whole zoom range topped off with a well made and functional design. No probs with this lens and an excellent price... 5 stars...
