  • Summary: Great product, service & fast delivery. Some dryer shrinkage causes them to be tight. Going with cool dryer temp now.

  • Summary: This is nice to have in combination with the Pentax 18-55 mm WR and a K5 or K5-IIs for use in inclement weather conditions. The two lenses cover a wide range -- 18 - 300 mm -- for just about anything that comes up.

  • Excerpt: Great value lens. Pentax cameras generally have good ergonomics and this lens just feel great on the camera with its lightness and big grippy zoom ring. One small gripe is that the focus ring is a bit out of the way and with the hood in storage position you can't actually get to it at the wide end, making quick shift inaccessible for quick grab shots.
  • Pros: Image quality, Handling, Price
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: Beautiful colour rendition and sharpness. Value for money for a kit lens, this is about as good as it gets. Focal range is great and build quality is above average. The only thing I could give it a negative for is the plastic mount. But for the price and considering it has the same optics as the DA one can live with this flaw.
  • Pros: Sharpness, Great focal range, Value for money
  • Cons: Considering the price, nothing.

  • Excerpt: The reviews of this lens were one of the big things that convinced me to go Pentax. The lens is plenty sharp for its price range, and light enough to shoot one handed. This is the lens I've got on my camera more than any other because its range is so versatile. Its great for walking around the park because you can get everything from distant animals to right up close insects. For example, the FA*300 cannot focus anywhere near as closely as this lens can.
  • Pros: Light weight, sharp, telemacro, quick shift
  • Cons: loud, focus can hunt, not weather sealed
