Summary: Bought my 18-200 on march 8th 2015 and it has become my go to zoom for my Pentax K-3. For a relatively inexpensive zoom its very sharp through out the focal length, providing you keep the aperture a stop or two over fully open.

Summary: I think this is the perfect travel lens. Who really wants to switch lenses over and over on a vacation cruise or European street? I've always thought it was a pain, especially when in a group of none enthusiasts.
