Pros: Really sharp, already very good at full aperture. Pleasantly built, quite silent focus. Large constant opening.

Cons: It suffers the backlight, not very fast focusing, but considering the age of design of the optics there can be.

Opinion: From a month in my hands, attached to a K3 Silver; Bought used in physical store, well, he was right Pasquale to insist almost because I bought it... Very high quality, for a perspective that compared to focal and brightness is not even exaggeratedly heavy or cumbersome, however "feels" and "you see". I appreciate the contrast, the colors, the sharpness and the quiet focus. Pity that the latter is slow for the current canons, but judged for the age of design of the optics I do not think we can complain. Surely, however, it is not a lens for action photos. Aesthetically beautiful, especially with the lens hood mounted! Really a happy purchase, with the only real flaw that suffers from the backlight. Now that I understand it because the prices are stable and do not fall, despite some congenital defect that often affects the engine focus... Blurred fantastic

Pros: Image quality, detachment of the plans and three-dimensional, compact for a 70-200 equivalent

Cons: Motor af a bit 'slow to "wake up"

Opinion: The problem of this lens is that when mounted on the machine is a real problem off for another mount, so you fall in its quality of each image to be fixed focal, on the blurred and his tridimensionalità.rnLa construction and weather sealing are excellent (I have a video on youtube when I wash it in the shower to sea) and is compact enough to not get tired even after a day of foto.rnL'af is a bit 'slow to wake up, or there is a small lag between when you press the button, it begins to focus. Once hooked, however, the tracking is one of the best I've tried and accuracy is excellent.

Pros: sharpness, bokeh, construction, weather sealing, zoom range

Cons: AF race long enough

Opinion: sharp as a fixed (even more), excellent three-dimensionality, blurred pasty (at short distances as the minimum distance of focus maybe a little 'hard) especially to average distances from portrait, building a reference and tropicalization excellent. what else should I add? rnsolo sull'af a note that can not be fast, not so much for the engine af As for the race maf pretty long, but much, being a portrait lens, the problem is where? :)

Pros: Superb sharpness, accurate focus even in low light

Cons: Autofocus is not fast, a little 'heavy

Opinion: I have used this perspective in the most varied occasions and I have never been disappointed. I've done portraits, landscape, night, even auto racing, and has never pulled indietro.rnCerto autofocus is not really a chip, but it is a lens that is born for action photography and in these cases some hesitation it has, but gets along well anyway. However, it is in portrait and landscape photos that gives the best, with excellent sharpness even at full aperture (has its "top" around f/5.6) and vignetting almost unnoticeable. Keep in mind that it is very light and portaselo neck all day is not a passeggiata.rnNon cheap, but I did not put the price of the "cons" because it is worth every euro it costs.

Pros: image quality, construction, sealed, constant aperture of f/2.8

Cons: AF motor defective in several specimens, slow AF, only suitable format APSC

Opinion: In this pro zoom I put the image quality and this is his main gift, with this view seems to use the fixed from 50 to 135. At the time, I never had this quality in a telephoto zoom lens that starts at 2.8 and note the maximum aperture you have great results at all focal lengths and across the frame, even if slightly decreases the focal length of 135. The build quality is very very good even though I've seen better, the focus is slow but always very precise (tried on various bodies) the big trouble with this view is the AF motor prone to breakdowns also repeated (it is one of the first ultrasonic lenses produced by Pentax) and in the first matches of objectives, the failure rate was quite high although it seems that lately we have put a piece. For the cost quite high and the lens to which it addresses the objective this defect is, however, absurd and bearable only for the high quality that offre.rnHo found here as well as on the 16-45 resistance to flare suboptimal speciesand with the light source off camera (always mounted hood) in some cases the image is unusable. I do not really suited to the optical format only APSC but this is the only one that can make a difference in some situations and sopportandone defects can only give satisfaction.
