This lens works very nicely when shooting wildlife with a Pentax K-50. I am amazed how well very tightly cropped photos hold up with this combination. Autofocus is sometimes an issue in some situations for me, but I am able to switch easily to manual focus to get the shot.I normally shoot RAW+jpeg.
Was my first purchase for the K-5. Poor lens. Avoid! Avoid! Avoid! May be cheap but it's a false economy, as most of your shots will go in the bin. While contrast is ok, and CA and flare is not excessive, getting something sharp with this lens is rare to impossible, even stopped down.
WR, price, size, useful focal range
not fast, not sharp, poor bokeh
I would give this item a better review if it was actually the item pictured and in the discription. It was a DAL lens (lesser quality w/o the quick shift focus) and not a DA lens. It would of been one thing if it was actually that was actually the item in the description (see attached photo).
Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 ED WR Telephoto Zoom Lens is a typical kit len for Pentax K-mount DSLR products, it includes a len hood which is great for the bright light outdoor photo shooting. In addition, it is with metal mount apart from DAL lens from Pentax which is constructed with plastic mount.
This lens works fine in good lighting and yeilds great pictures for those who know how to use it within its limitations. Don't expect to pay this price point and get the results of a fixed f/2.8...you wont.
I opine: I found it an excellent lens. Eg: by sight a trawler at sea appeared to have no crew on deck but with this zoom lens attached I could pick out the head and shoulders, clearly though not facial features at about 300 yards; the lens being weather resistant, I have used it in light rain...
Nice lens, lightweight, nice addition.
Solid lens, as usual, I didn't expect anything less from Pentax. It has a good zoom range and it feels solid in my hands. WR is a definite plus, as the lens is best used outdoors.
Great lens for my Pentax! Best lens for everything outdoors and portraits! Works beautifully on both manual and automatic.
sent the kit lens, but i got it for 45$ so I can't complain
