Thanks for posting this. At one point in my LBA, I actually considered upgrading to the II version. The principal reason was that I dropped my k10d with it's kit lens attached and munched the kit lens a bit, it still works fine but sorta has a hitch on either end of the zoom, not worth fixing really. I went for the DA*16-50 and have never looked back. So next year when I get a k-7, I'll opt for the WR version of this guy I guess.

Anyway, I was wondering whether or not the II lens was worth the effort. This review says yes. That's good to know.
