  • Summary: Good, decent, lens. Not very fast, and not wicked sharp, but a good all around lens for the money.

  • Excerpt: Light weight, fast auto focus, very sharp at all lengths and f stops. I paid only $25.00 for this lens, and I believe it was money well spent. I have a hard time understanding the majority of these reviews. If I believed a product deserved less than a 9 rating, I would not recommend it. Some reviewers find everything wrong with this lens, rate it a 6 and then recommend it. Again, I do like this lens from Pentax.
  • Pros: Reliable and general all around good lens to have.
  • Cons: I just find it to be bigger than needed.

As a less expensive lens, it does what I want and I’m happy.

  • Summary: My Daughter works for a local newspaper. Often she has to cover sport games and when call upon, help her with photography. The biggest problem is that I don’t want to jeopardize my expensive lenses for newspaper quality photos. For the price of an older SMC Pentax 28-80-FA f:3.5-5.6 lens, I didn’t have to worry about “something” messing it up and costing me a fortune to fix.

Definitely A Great Deal

  • Summary: First off, ya can't beat the price of this lens. Yes, it's not as durable as other lenses, but, because of the way it's made it is certainly much lighter to carry around. I don't use auto- focus much, but I was still curious if this lens would operate in AF mode- it does. The pictures I've taken thus far have been of a more vivid quality than Pentax K-x kit lens, and I seem to be getting wider angle shots. So far I have NO complaints.

Without a doubt, this lens is your best dollar for dollar value.

  • Summary: I wanted another auto-focus for my Pentax ZX-7 and ZX-30 Pentax cameras. I couldn't ask for a better lens for the price than this one. The sharpness, color balance and ease of use is money well spent. Interestingly enough, ZX-30 along with this lens seem to work better using Kodak ISO 400 speed film. Also, it is very light weight and no burden to carry with me for eight hours a day or even more. Thanks for reading.

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for $8.50 off of eBay plus S&H. At this price the lens can do whatever it wants and I think I got a bargain. Excellent value! It's cheaper than going out to the movies and getting take-out from your favorite restaurant.
  • Pros: Fast and solid autofocus, good exposure
  • Cons: A little bulky, could be sharper
