Pentax F 35-135 question

is this lens any good? I haven't found any substantial review regarding this lens. somebody mentioned that it is somewhat a poor man's DA* 50-135 in terms of IQ. now is that wonderful to think? or is it just BS? anybody who had experience with this lens could help me out? or atleast show me some photos. thanks !

For starters, you can read the reviews in the Lens Review Database of the forum for this puppy. I only mention that since you are new to the forum and may not have run ito that yet. Fat chance huh?

I am interested too even though its not quite wide enough its certainly inexpensive enough for an extra walk around lens.

I own a Pentax F 35-135/3.5-4.5 and I really like it and the IQ is good.
Here is a link to my site with pictures taken with that lens Capture Beauty: 35-135.

I don't use it has much now since I bought my Tamron 28-105mm F4-5.6 [IF]. But I don't want to sell it, it is a very good lens.

If you have specific questions, let me know.

I use mine mostly on Christmas morning. It's got enough range so I don't have to move around much, it works well with my flash and it's AF. The size and weight balance the flash pretty well. I could probably use my 28-105 for similar shots.
