I had been using the Sigma 18-250 mm for several years. I wanted a little longer range and debated between the 18-300 and this lens. Many of the larger lens reviews pointed out some problem areas.
This lens lacks the macro function that was available on the 18-250 Pentax lens that we had previously. The macro setting was great for close-up shots of flowers and other subjects and is missed.The 270 telephoto is really nice.
I am so happy with this lens and only wish I'd bought it earlier. This is a perfect walk around lens if you don't want to be constantly changing your lens. I previously used a 18-50 mm and a 50-300 mm. I felt I always needed to have both with me, just in case.
I was disappointed that this lens was not WR. So far, VERY happy with the quality and function of this lens. The manual focus switch is awesome when I need to switch to manual for challenging situations.
Went spring turkey hunting lens worked great. Great telephoto took real nice photos
So far I have only used this lens around my neighborhood and am more than pleased with the results! The photos have all been great for this type of lens. I would not use it for up close photos of insects or other tiny items but overall I am more than satisfied with the results.
I love using this lens while hiking and backpacking. Great range so I don't have to change lenses in less than ideal conditions.
I take this lens with me when I travel as a replacement for 4 different lenses I used to carry; a wide angle (12-24),a 16-50,a 50-135, and 55-300. The photos are not as sharp or bright as the 16-50 and 50-135; the lens is not as wide as the 12-24. And the reach is not as long as the 55-300.
The 18-270 works with well on the K20d and K-r, although I use it mostly on my K3. It is good all-around travel lens. It is good for bird shots, but I find it most useful for close in "macro" type shots for small critters such as butterflies, moths, millipedes, etc.
This lens was purchased to replace a world weary Sigma 18-200mm zoom. A good lens but starting to show its age. Matched to a K5 II, the lens is very quiet and smooth in auto focus mode with a light manual focus ring.
