Opinion:Great lensCost little, optically good, average design quality, better than 18-55 and 16-50 f 2.8 for surrender The only flaw is that it stretches too far to the wide angle, I like the AF lenses insideForce was built like the 16- 50 would have been perfect Overall rating 8.5rnPs is optically superior to the so famous Canon 17-40 but you know, series l you can not criticize ......
Cons:Focal length, construction and material usage
Opinion:I left 17 17 for this purpose, apart from the construction and the focal length for now is better as far as the focus, the detail. Sharp and very sharp, the blurry I can still fine but something makes and certainly not essential. Bought used at 150 €, I think it was a great deal
Cons:Build quality is not the best, a few millimeters more on the canvas, slight distortion at the edges on the wide side.
Opinion:A lens is no longer in the catalog, you will find on the used market at ridiculous prices (200 e.) And offers a lot in terms of image quality (better f.5,6-8 the diaphragm). Compared to optical most popular and expensive as the DA 17-70 or even the DA 16-50 (star) holds great comparison. A few millimeters more on the paintings did not hurt, they are often forced to change perspective to get to 60 or 70mm. Personally I still use it with great satisfaction.
Pros:Image quality, constant aperture, versatility, speed, focus, optical construction excellent, excellent color
Cons:Short focal length, mechanical construction in some specimens to improve, not to tropical distortion evident from 16-20 correctable in post production
Opinion:From the optical point of view is an excellent lens. Best of optics as the SMC DA 17-70 f / 4 and SMC DA * 16-50 f / 2.8 or the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 SP, colors and sharpness are excellent since the maximum aperture , I suggest you use F4 to F8. The only flaw is a distortion corrected to 16 mm in development. The use of the lens hood is required above under 28mm. Be careful if you buy the lens used without a hood that it costs about 70 Euros. The average price of used is from 200 to 220 Euros.
Cons:short focal length, diffilcoltà of some specimens to focus at minimum range, embarrassing games on the barrel, only suitable format APSC
Opinion:Although not having this point I could use it for a couple of years, the building leaves much to be desired and lacks the sealing was found in most specimens a certain difficulty in focusing at minimum focus. That said optical quality and at a good level, and taking into account the price at which it is used may be a good upgrade to the 18-55 standard. The colors and sharpness are excellent especially since the maximum aperture at 16mm focal length decreases slightly to maximum 45mm. Diaframmando there is an increase in performance and decrease in vignetting at f8 images are sharp at all focal lengths and on almost the entire frame. The colors are warm in style Pentax, on my copy I noticed an imperfect seal species to flare with the source of light almost out of frame.
