Summary: I'm always a little aprehensive when ordering something unseen and used. I am very pleased with this purchase, however; and with the savings over purchasing a similar new lens. The lens works as expected on my Pentax K5 and seems to be in nearly new condition.
Summary: If you are wondering about buying this lens the main thing you should consider is if you are purchasing one that is designed to work with the digital line (assuming you have a digital camera, otherwise it will certainly work just fine with a film camera).
Summary: The Macro feature is especially useful and easy to use, offering various magnifications simply by zooming in or out. The zoom range from wide angle to portrait length will cover the ordinary needs of most of us, and is provided in a lightweight package that won't make you feel like you've been tied...
Summary: That's pretty much the good and the bad of it. I ordered mine because I liked the range on this lens and it's cheap, so it should get me by until I can get a better lens. That said, I wasn't expecting much from this lens, and I got about what I expected.
Summary: Excellent value for what I paid, about 12 dollars.Smooth AF and Great Macro shots and above average pictures at other focal lengths, as good as or slightly better than the kit lens. A good buy and definitely worth it.
Summary: I have found this to be a very versatile all purpose lense - good to have on hand for most occasions - when someone dropped my lense and it broke i replaced it because i really missed it and realized how frequently i relied on it
