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.View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
