$100 is a great price. This lens lives on my camera when I go hiking.

$100 is insanely good. I chose this lens over all the alternatives, Yes, even the DA*. I'd prefer a stop faster, but for what I use this lens for (landscapes) that is not really needed.

Another vote here for the Tamron 17-50/2.8. I got mine used from a fellow Pentaxian for $300.
