I sold the Pentax version at least two years back. IQ was ok, but the lens creep was unbelievable..

I agree about the lens creep - my Tamron version can drive you mad sometimes! Nevertheless, for travel, I turn to it everytime for that one lens solution.

Personally, I think a two lens 18-55 and 55-300 solution is much better, even if does mean switching.

16-45mm and 55-300mm does it for me (the gap between 45 and 55 hasn't been an issue), and I'm constantly surprised with colour and contrast of the 16-45, and that extra 2mm at the wide end does help.
