Period of use: 2 months


well-built lens; good sharpness and colors; nice macro goes to 1:5


tends to have some zoom creep; somewhat heavy; does not have auto aperture


I used the Pentax version w/ Ricoh pin (which is rounded type which does not get stuck on Pentax K mount)

Liked the lens, but never use it since I got a Pentax DA 18-135
