Cheap lightweight lens
I use this lens when travelling light and do not expect to use telephoto a lot. Build quality is fine and subpar AF can be helped by instant manual override - the QSF. Optically it is the worst of current Pentax tele zooms. Still usable, but really not exceptional. But it is cheap and very small and light.
