I wish there were more reviews to be sure about this lens as far as scenic photography is concerned. Looking at the full size samples the lens seems soft even at f8 (building shots), no better than my kit lens. Maybe they got a poor sample may be not, I would want to see more samples from other copies of the lens to really decide.

Lenstip state that their images are unsharpened and to me they look just that, even the Zeiss Otus 55mm 1.4 images didn't look that great and that's the sharpest lens on the planet.

It's killed Pentax Forums "call" that it could not achieve sharp borders at 40mm even when stopping down. When it's price comes down it looks pretty good for a compact zoom.

Dave's clichés

Lenstip always does that, lowest sharpening possible so you can more accurately evaluate the lens, download the sample and apply some sharpening to your taste to see how well it does or not.
