No! No new guys! No soup for you!

Just kidding! Welcome to the forum!

I can't speak for myself, but from what I read here it seems this lens is a pretty good super-zoom. you won't get quality equal to primes at any given focal length, but then primes don't give you this much versatility. If you're looking for a do-it-all lens this one, or it's Tamron twin, seem to be your best bet in the pentax mount.
