Pentax silver/black 28-105 4-5.6 reviews?

If anyone uses this lens I would appreciate a review. I'm trying to find out if it is as good as th 3.2 pentax 28-105 lenses. I can only seem to find the 3.2 anywhere in the mostly silver color. I don't need the power zoom. Just inexpensive that will work on my k100d autofocus. Prefer new lens. Appreciate all comments, thanks, Freddy

Here are two user reviews:

Edit: I actually linked you to the FA 28-105/3.2-4.5 review as I misread the thread title. The non-power-zoom variant of the 28-105/4-5.6 is actually made by Tamron, so it features a different design and build than all the other FA lenses. I recommend that you actually get the power-zoom variant since its build is much more sturdy and it has a 1:3 macro feature.

Thanks, Mo. I did definitely want to weed out the Tamron version of the Pentax f-5.6 I think I'm going to go back and get the Pentax 50-200 ed glass model. Do you think I could get in close with that like my attached photo?
Appreciate all your help. Freddy
