Superb lens in all areas.

  • Excerpt: Outstanding image quality, construction and ease of use on my K3. Great useful range and not too heavy for some handheld shots. I understand it's also full frame equivalent with no crop-factor when used on the (eventual) FF Pentax DSLR - we'll have to wait and see but if so, that would be...
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excellent addition to my lenses

  • Excerpt: Used for a variety of applications: Nature, and Transportation photography. This lens is half the weight of my Sigma 50-500mm, which still allows it to be a walk around lens. When paired with the new Pentax 1.4x telextender it boosts the lens to a 350mm (approx 500mm in a full frame format).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Summary: Incredibly sharp (comparable to a Pentax prime), beautiful color rendition, and very little distortion or CA. While heavy, it's my favorite walking-around lens.

Great lens!

  • Summary: Excellent lens. Image quality is very good--I use it while hiking and around the desert surroundings near home. It's a bit heavy to hike around with but worth it. Have used it for almost a month with no issues. Arrived well packaged and ready to go. So far so good. Very satisfied.

Wow

  • Excerpt: I've been using the lens to take shots of the ducks at my local pond. I previously had a Tamron 70-200 F/2.8 and the Pentax basically blows the Tamron out of the water. It tracks movement better, focuses faster, almost never hunts, has better color, better contrast, nicer sharpness.

I Love the lens though

  • Summary: I am not a pro or even an advanced enthusiast. I Love the lens though. Beautiful clear photos. It works seamlessly with my K3. I agree with other people's enthusiastic reviews who have greater technical knowledge. The lens must have good testing numbers if it produces such nice photos.

  • Summary: I just received this lens today. Haven't had a chance to take any pictures yet but, I did look it over good and mount to camera and operate it briefly. My 1st impressions out of the box: DAM! it's large and heavy, smooth operation and seems to be very well built and did I say DAM!
