Pros: Compact, lightweight, minimum focus at 95cm, focusing speed, sharpness. Cost

Cons: 300 mm brightness only

Opinion: The first Pentax lens purchased for the K70. Absolutely a surprise, for that price I expected a sharpness and a yield worthy of a glass and instead it is a great lens. Compact and lightweight, once taken manual skills with the commissioning button, even fast. Excellent color rendering, excellent sharpness, lightning-fast focus. Too bad that f: 6.3 on the maximum focal length, however, even at full aperture behaves very well, even better at f: 8 and you can use it well even freehand because light and balanced. It produces a very pleasant blur great for portraits. If I had to summarize I would say that it is a very versatile lens "a jack of all trades" as the Anglo-Saxons would say. In my humble opinion a great lens at a great price. Even the hood is properly made. Welcome these optics that can give a lot of satisfaction even to those who can not afford to spend dollars.

Pros: lightweight, space-saving, good finishes, very good performance, silent in the maf

Cons: it has a small aperture over the long distance, but in those dimensions and in that weight you can not expect more

Opinion: On the k70 I used for a couple of years as a tele-zoom the breaker (F 70-210). So noisy that, so quiet the 55-300. Few uncertainties in the maf, good resolution (excellent at short focal lengths). Very good color rendering. It holds well in the hand and is very comfortable to carry when it is portrayed at the minimum size. However, there is the brief loss of time to put it back in operational condition: not very significant in landscape photography, a bit boring in the photo of dynamic subjects or in an unexpected action.

Pros: Small, light, weatherproof, in my opinion very very pleasant to touch materials, very very clear and very fast focusing (as well as very quiet)

Cons: Not very bright but it's cheap, so you can not expect more openness and maybe constant ... then it would be neither small nor light nor cheap

Opinion: For me, a little gem of materials, of constructive care, of speed af, of weight and encumbrance and of optical quality. Bought used and paid little, I no longer take it out of the second camera I have. Great for stalking, because it does not make any noise in the fast focusing and then the small diameter front lens rarely reflects the light to scare away any prey to photograph. Beautiful even in close ups, good contrast, great sharpness. Excellent focal excursion. Nice colors. In a word, Pentax ... a great Pentax!

Pros: speed of focus, sharpness, water resistance, price

Cons: low brightness

Opinion: It is a zoom that uses the internal focusing engine (impulse PLM) and is WR (water resistant), so it is ideal for outdoor shooting even for avifauna as the focusing speed is remarkable and has nothing what about the previous model that was controlled by the engine of the reflex. It is very sharp even at full opening and is therefore also suitable for portrait painters, blurry is very beautiful. So I would say that it can be considered a cheap handset but not too bad. Pentax often points to points in their favor but they go silently because the brand is a bit snore (wrong) by most photographers. On the other hand, it is to be said that those who use branded material Pentax knows very well that it has something that is worth much more than its price. Amen.

Pros: Assembly, compact, weather sealing, optical performance at all focal lengths, fast AF

Cons: Apart from the low light, however note, I have not detected it

Opinion: It is a born goal for APS-C but it can be safely used on FF with a small accorgimento.rnSu Aps-c (in particular with the K70) obviously gives the best: made more than decent at all focal lengths, very quickly in the MAF, both single and continuous, in my humble opinion, and for me quite up, good color rendering, exposure consistency in all diaframmi.rnCome said, of FF is perfectly usable, either automatically crop is in FF mode by cutting the 'unavoidable vignetting in pp and with more valid results but, again, with a trick: the exposure is correct up to f / 8, after each closing must stop underexpose by a diaphragm (the thing has been verified with FOWA) ; the latest update for K1, however, should fix the small problema.rnLa great talent of this lens version is, as mentioned, the compactness, but also the performance is impressive rispettor: I have not detected the flare phenomena nor ac (though the latter can be eliminated in pp) and the yield is generally good at all focal lengths, without qualitative collapses even at maximum focal; All this, combined with a relatively low cost, make it a goal to definitely take into account, where you do not want to invest an excessive amount, and you want a view versatile and not too heavy, very suitable for hiking and excursions.
