Pros: Bright, sharp at full aperture, well built, autofocus, price

Cons: It's not WR

Opinion: I Think it's the only 70-200 F2,8 non-Pentax compatible with the K1. It is an old model, superseded by the new stabilized and motorized version, but it is only built for Nikon and Canon and at twice the price. In spite of someone's opinion, the autofocus is very good even if it does not have the ultrasonic system, it hooks the subjects even with very poor light and it does it quickly without uncertainties, both with the K70 and the K1. The Construction is unexceptionable, the whole is made of metal and hard plastics and I must say that it is not a big problem the size and weight, after you got used to it. So far I have done only a few test shots but I have to say that the results are beyond my most rosy expectation, especially at f 2.8 and at 200mm, I have to say thanks especially to the stabilised sensors of the Pentax that have allowed me to shoot below the 1/60 second to Free hand. I bought it from Amazon, not so much for the convenience, but because it starts to be unavailable from other retailers, so my advice is to buy it without hesitation if you find it.

Pros: Used Price, sharpness, f/2.8 fixed on all focal lengths

Cons: Slow AF, weight

Opinion: Amazing performance Lens like optical quality, maybe a little less like AF which is a bit slow and inaccurate in low light conditions. Taken used including lens hood for €420, I mainly use it for portraits paired with the Tamron 45mm f/1.8. Crisp and wide open and blurred by scream. From the best of se between F/4 and F/8. I recommend it to those who like me is fond of portraits and extreme blurred, for those who take care of sports photos do not recommend it when the AF is not the fastest and should adequately to the G2 version more updated.

Pros: Sharpness

Cons: Heaviness

Opinion: It is not a monster of lightness but compared to the Pentax 70-200 it is more manageable. With this lens I immediately found the Feeling. Sharp and precise is not lightning but in my opinion for what it costs them all worth. I have used it with Pentax K-1 with which it behaves very well, it also works perfectly well with the multiplier ring 1, 4x. I also love the colors and the blur of this lens.

Pros: Good brightness and image quality

Cons: Slow AF, weight

Opinion: I've been testing this lens for several months in sports photography, I'm talking about running, and today I'm ready to make a judgement. Nothing to say about the quality of the photos, in the colors and details, once hooked the subject hardly loses it. The problem lies in the slow AF. I found myself repeatedly to discard photos that came moved. It is a flaw that you can deal with but when the scene gets crowded it becomes a problem. I got to try it out even during some summer Night Football tournament. The situation gets tough because of the poor lighting of the fields and the speed of the game. Raising the ISO, allowing camera body, to the limit of accepting some noise you get with a pinch of luck some decent shot, availing of a monopod. Nothing remotely comparable to daylight but if the destination of the photos are the social networks are more than good. I conclude by saying, as always, that I am a fledgling amateur photographer for which I still use for most of the automatisms of camera body and lens but if you find this lens at a good price (I paid it around €400) is an expense of which you will not regret m A attention because if your purpose is sports photography you will be bisticking. Better to exploit it in less hasty areas, where the AF can take the time it needs to focus the subject.

Pros: Construction, well-balanced weight, optical performance, details, very natural colors, minimum focusing distance, cost, precision and autofocus speed.

Cons: I do not know .... for the cost it has and for the seniority of the project I would say nobody.

Opinion: I use it on Pentax K7 or K3, this premise is necessary to consider the focusing system that is PTO. Its speed is not as low as many state if used with some precautions. Certainly it is not a lens devoted to sports photography, for which the ultrasonic focus motors are of great help but, if used with criteria, this lens is a great piece of optics. For fast focusing you must not force the lens to fire first at a distance of one meter and then at 60 meters ... otherwise the focus of the focus will slow down the focus a little and, you have to point the subject with the precision of a sniper, if by mistake go to the background to focus the problem described above presents itself. This aspect limits a few uses, but it is not an aspect that I would insert between the ... once you understand how it behaves you can do a little bit what you want. For the rest it is a really fantastic lens, very natural as rendered on images with never-before contrastsppo strong or too weak. The colors are fabulous and not bright, I would say pastel shades. The blur is very, very pleasant and the detachment of the plans rather progressive. A soft fur at full aperture, which for portrait does not disturb and, very defined by f4 or f5.6 onwards. The weight is a plus .... 1310 gr with tripod ring and lens hood fitted optimally balanced with the camera body. it wields and is more stable than a 24-70 f2.8, because of the greater weight, or larger dimensions that make it easier to handle. The ferrules are fluid and with the right resistance. Perhaps only a little short the stroke of the focus ring to work in manual mode, a rotation of a few degrees corresponds to a large displacement of the point of focus .... therefore care should be taken when disabling the autofocus. Definitely a very reliable and successful lens, built with resistant materials and with little plastic. For the price it costs, even buying it new, I think we can expect little more than what it offers.
