Pros: A particularly interesting focal range, impeccable construction, good quality of materials, WR, very fast and accurate AF, price aligned with the quality it offers.

Cons: So far I have not found any.

Opinion: Lens practically "welded" to the K70 for me is the ideal complement. Weight and dimensions quite "important" (but they are not a problem) immediately gives an impression of solidity and reliability . The optical yield is more than dignified: the color rendering first of all: colors rightly saturated as I particularly appreciate, it is a good optic even at maximum aperture, reaching the optimum, as often happens, at intermediate diaphragms. I did not have to resort to microregulation of fire and I did not detect flare phenomena; Effective and well-made hood supplied as standard.

Pros: All!

Cons: I would say essentially the weight and size are important, if you like to travel with it (car + lens 1.3kg) is to keep in mind this detail.

Opinion: Simply excellent lens, very sharp from f3.5 to f16, a razor to f8, very fast in AF, very versatile, starts from 16mm (24mm eq), reduced AC (which I hate), we photograph mainly landscape. Combined with the K3-ii it is simply perfect, with a professional cut and an extremely pleasant result, both in contrast and colors! Despite the aperture of F3.5 at 16mm I took some remarkable photos of the Milky Way (without using the Astro Tracer). I must admit that together with the K3-II it literally made me pass the FF monkey. Beautiful rendering. What can I say: Brava Pentax!

Pros: appearance, finish, resolution in the center

Cons: unsatisfactory resolution on one side

Opinion: For the K70 I bought almost immediately a Sigma 17-70 first series, used and in very good condition, at a very low price, 120 €. I used it in pairs with the breaker. In November I bought the 55-30 pml on offer on the large sales channel. Really a good purchase. At the end of July I bought the 16-85, hoping that it could form an excellent pair with the aforementioned one. No. Typically, in the center and on 3/4, it is better than Sigma, but not so much. But on the left edge, especially at the top, it has an unsatisfactory resolution, like the 18-55 first series. Misaligned lenses? Returned.

Pros: It has all the merits that you can find in a simply excellent lens

Cons: Maybe arrived a little late on the market

Opinion: It is a lens on which you can not have anything to say. On the fact that some find it as "against" that an F 4 lens is not f 2.8 I do not express myself: it would be another goal, size, weight and double price. Unfortunately it has arrived with infinite delay on the market and many in the meantime have jumped on the very sad Tamron and Sigma but you can always recover. If you photograph with Pentax It is unmissable, also monstrous on K-1.

Pros: All do wr .. HD !!! Min. 16mm distortion is clear from f4 to 85mm from f6 .. not bad x an all done, bright but still authentic colors

Cons: Unusual filter diameter, somewhat bulky, no focus distance for night

Opinion: I have to say that I did not feel the need for having the 18-135 wr and sigma 17-50 f2.8 years ago but then a friend if it was found in kit and doing only macros and portraits ..gliel'ho I took it practically new to 420 € and for that figure it's great !!!!! I mostly use Fixed Fixed Optics and Zoom on K5 and K5ii both for photoreport and landscape as well as still-life and I have to say that this as ALL DOES is really worth it (it would have been 100mm at f5.6 and 16mm at f2.8 i would have given it The double but I doubt it would have been exactly the same sharpness as this)
