    Cons: Super Sharp, outstanding construction

    Pros: None so far

    Summary: WOW!! this is my baby, my go too lens. It is solid and very well made, focuses very quickly and quietly, takes gorgeous pictures, the zoom and focus rings operate smoothly, and it feels great on my K-1 Mark II. I have tried to think of something I don\'t like about this lens, but I can\'t. If you don\'t have this one...GET IT!!!! -- Michael (builder hamilton)

    Cons: Heavy

    Pros: For landscape fotography as useful as the 15-30 and the 24-70. Very sharp, nice colours and wonderful handling, especially on tripod.

    Summary: Beatiful addition to the Pentax line-up and a dream to use, when you\'re willing to do some (not to much) weight lifting. Always in my camerabag!

    Cons: Heavy, big, expensive compared to Tamron 70-200

    Pros: Superb optical quality, All Weather (AW), internal focus, bokeh

    Summary: A big, heavy tank of a lens. But the optical quality is astonishing; very sharp. Very good AF on Pentax K1. Occasional chromatic aberration easily cleaned in Lightroom.
