Any comments on SMC Pentax FA 28-200mm AL(IF) lens?

Local seller has one and I'm thinking it would be a great second lens for my K-m I just purchased...

Anyone with personal likes or dislikes on this lens?

I'd also like to get the 10-17mm for in the woods shots!

It's a good lens.It's not the sharpest compared to a prime,but I have taken some nice shots with it. It does has an advantage of a very good focal range without having to change lenses.But it really depends on how much the seller is willing to sell it to you for.If it's under the $100 mark and in good condition,then I would consider buying it.Maybe you can take your K-m with you down to the seller and test it out and then make your final decision.Good luck!
