petax da 16-50 experience (pentax k-m)

Hello does anyone have experience with pentax k-m together with the pentax da 16-50
Is this a good combination or does some option not working

What exactly are you asking?

The KM is the most current DSLR from Pentax... I hardly believe will have any issues with any current lenses... Hecka, even with my older K10D with bios update, the DA* 16-50 worked perfectly...

You'll get full SDM support, if that's what you mean--the K100D, K110D and older *ist D/DS/DS2/DL, etc. models use the camera's screw-drive only.

The 16-50 is a weather sealed lens, but the k-m isn't a weather-sealed body, so that might not be an advantage for you.

Those two will work fine with each other but IMO a better combo would be K-m+DA17-70 for longer reach, less weight, same SDM noiseless focusing, none are weather sealed so you don't pay for w.s on one and don't use it. It's also less expensive.

Good luck with your choice!
