Pentax 18-55mm AL II question--IS it better than the original kit lens?
Jan 6, 2009

Hi everyone--As I have listed my K10D on eBay in hopes of raising enough dough to buy myself the K20 finally, I am finding that due to the high amount of clicks I have on it (20,000) including the lens (which I haven't as of now) would sweeten the deal for several folks who are interested. My kit lens has been magnificent but in reading some reviews of the ALII, it sounds like it is FAR better than the one I have--have any of you with the new kit lens experienced this to be true? Is there less noise introduced? How about color fringing, haloing and vignetting? I'm dying to hear, b/c if it IS indeed better than my already wonderful kit lens, I will include it in the deal and get a brand new AL II! Thanks for your help as always, Cindy
