This lens offers a nice zoom range and high quality optics. This lens compares with my Canon 24-105mm lens that I have been using for the past 10 years for zoom coverage. The Pentax lens in my opinion is crisper than my Canon lens. I have not found any negatives with this lens.
Using this with Pentax K-1. There is plenty of reviews around of this lense, check them. My personal opinion: This is the best all-around and walk-around zoom choice for K-1 at this price. It is sharp "enough" from open to f16. The IQ is very good, the lens focuses fast, accurately and silently.
As others have said, this is a great walk-around lens to have on your camera. It's very easy to use, easy to carry and focuses quickly and quietly. When it comes to sharpness, however, the images it produces are a little soft; that's is the only issue keeping me from giving this 5 stars.
Knowing this to be a kit lens I did not expect too much from it. The surprise was that on the K-1 it does a good job through the entire zoom range. I shoot primes if it is really important but this is a great carry around lens.
Awesome lens, auto focus is quick and smooth. Lens hood stores on barrel for convenience.
i needed a wide angle lens that would also be good for portrait-kind photosi used while my first trip to USA.
I use it for routine photo outings, hiking, and trekking. Lightweight & Weatherproof, so good for hiking and trekking. It could be wider at the lower end and longer at the upper end but considering the light weight it is a very nice lens to have. Much lighter than the better Pentax 24-70
It arrived intact and seems to perform well with the K1. The zoom is a little stiff, but that's better than too loose. I don't notice any drop off in the corners and it focuses quickly. This will be a work horse for me.
Excellent build quality and image quality when used with the K1 full frame.
This lens has absolutely changed the quality of images I was getting with my K-3. Because the lens is made for the full frame K-1 it is heavy and large compared to many of the lenses I have specifically for the smaller sensor. The image and build quality far exceed the negative of the weight.
