If the 10-17mm Pentax model is a bit too extreme for you, then Pentax also produces the 12-24mm. It has a constant maximum aperture of f/4 through the entire zoom range, internal focusing (IF) and gives a 35mm equivalent range of 18-36mm.

I bought this for my wife -- she's the photographer in the family, I just tote the tripod! She likes it a lot, says it is a good complement to her 18-55mm and 70-300mm lenses. Ideally she'd like something faster, but in the price range we operate in, this is very good.

Very nice lens, I use it probably four times a week, good glass, good images with no distortion on edges, a very nice lens

I use this lens a lot for landscapes and it works great for me (mostly). The only problem is the front light flare, that in some cases is disturbing.It is a big and heavy lens compared to DA15, but it's also more versatile.

When you just pick the lens up and feel the weight of the lens and it's quality feel you know that this lens is worth the MSRP of $900. It produces awesome, undistorted landscape pictures. I used it on my K-10D for many years but know use it on my K-7.

  • +

    Very crisp images--Try to keep your F stop above f8 for best results or use a Tripod if you need to achieve that in low light conditions. Well constructed lens.

  • -

    The lens has a hard time locking with the auto focuss even with the K-7. No Weather Proofing or SDM focuss like my crown jewel Pentax 16-50 DA* lens.
