Pros: Construction, tropicalization, metal bayonet, value for money, focal range

Cons: ...

Opinion: Bought for my daughter at the first photographic experiences, but before putting it in her hand I tested it and evaluated it personally, although not in a maniacal way. The construction quality of this zoom suitable for general use immediately comes to the fore. as soon as you take it in your hand you immediately perceive a certain robustness and general ness of the lens that, has no games or weaknesses in general. The metal bayonet also gives the idea of greater stability to the plug on the camera and longer life. Seals do their duty by protecting it from moisture, even high, dust and various infiltrations once mounted on the machine. Construction and finishes make it really pleasant both to the eye and to the touch.... almost wanted to keep it to me. The zoom ring is well sized, has no strange games and offers pleasant resistance. Maybe a little tight and light in adjusting the focus ring but, considering the wide use of autofocus, it's also fine. The optical yield is very valid at all focal lengths, obviously also considering the price, with a decent resistance to flare. In the class of this type of optics is fine.... if you are looking for fast and ultra-defined optics, you need to go to other types of optics. Overall I consider it as an excellent first lens that, coupled with equally tropicalized machine bodies, will allow you to photograph in any climatic situation... for sure the photographer will be the first to give in to the weather and not the body machine and lens system.

Pros: Value for money, tropicalization, compact and light

Cons: Nothing given the cost

Opinion: It is distinguished by the lightness that allows you to transport it easily, despite this the construction quality is very good: the rings are very sliding and precise. A point in favor for tropicalization that allows you to shoot even in adverse weather conditions (tested during a copious snowfall and despite being wet they have not suffered consequences neither he nor the machine). Good sharpness especially for diaphragm values greater than 5-6 while losing a little on the sides at the extreme focal points. Not too bright but in critical situations you can easily compensate by raising the iso. In my opinion perfect to start with, it combines ease of transport with a multiplicity of uses to which it lends itself (portraiture, landscaping, etc...).

Pros: Discreet optical kit, price to use

Cons: It has its obvious limitations that must be compared to the price

Opinion: I do not go down to the technical specific because you can find all sorts of reviews about it. I say that he gave me shots that I still like a lot years later. I remember all its limitations such as open diaphragms sharpness and plastic construction (which makes it light) tropicalization not too effective in my opinion, especially against dust. To start a great companion, a lens that on the go you can mistreat without remorse thanks to the low price of optics.

Pros: Well done,tropicalized ,light,minimum MaF distance of 25 cm

Cons: At 55 AF sometimes it's a mischief

Opinion: I picked up this 18/55 after almost 10 years (purchased with the K7) and then put it in a drawer to use a Tamron 18/200 as everything do . Out of curiosity I took it back to use it a bit and it stunned me . Compared to Tamron there is no history, with others I do not. Only precaution if you use for close-up images ,portraits etc close a little the diaphragm the sharpness improves a lot (at 18 mm even at 5.6 ... rather raise the iso) A greeting to all Piero

Pros: Build quality, tropicalized, metal bayonet, Quickshift focus

Cons: Blender Autofocus

Opinion: Honest kit lens that nothing has to envy to the other 18-55 but with some extra features that are appreciated and that make it usable for a long time without you feel the immediate need to switch to more professional lenses. Introduces the design of modern Pentax optics. It's weather sealed, so it resists the interperie. I used it in the snow, in the fog and with water splashes without problems. The focus is through the engine of the machine body, which involves a little ' noise but the speed is definitely acceptable. It has the Quickshift focus that allows immediate switching from autofocus to manual focus by tapping the focus ring. Optically asks to be closed at least one stop to compensate for a slight softness typical of entry-level zoom lenses. The yield to the center is good and at the edges recovers diaphragming. The chromatic aberrations are very contained, almost absent I would say.
