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 bought my K5ii with this lens. Only lens I need. Not professional sharpness, but I can jump from wide to tight and not miss a shot. Quiet. Accurate focus. For an apsc sensor Pentax, you be well satisfied. No good for you macro shooters, great for family,sports and travel!
Its an excellent lens. However, it isnt anti-shock gadget.
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 moon shot says tons. Awesome lens!
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.
You can pay more for a sharper lens. But the lens is pretty sharp depending on zoom range and how far it is stopped down. You have to realize that the lens zooms from 18mm to 270mm. That's a long range so some sharpness is sacrificed. Has a pretty smooth and almost noiseless sound when focusing.
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.
