Great lens all in all

I got mine for less than half price. It feels very nice to handle, it is sturdy and heavy. Both are good qualities to me.


Pictures look great the colors are beautiful and it has good contrast. Mine BF a bit but my pentax K-5 took care of that. Resolution... dot dot dot, yeah, well I love this lens but I do think my copy (and I cringe when I use that word - My Lens Is Soft) normal price is 3 times what I paid and I feel the resolution should be better. But I just remind my self that far better photographers have said that if you reject a photo bc of sharpness it is a bad photo anyways : )


My lens creeps both facing down and up. But the af/mf slide of the focus barrel does not annoy me.


I would recomend this if you find this out of production lens on a used market.

If you want to see picture taken with this lens on a Pentax K200D and pentax K-5 go to my website or my other site
