Item Description
SMC Pentax-FA J 18-35mm F4-5.6

Bought this lens ~2 years ago to go with my K1 for indoor and group events, particularly robotics. I found that it was used FAR more than I ever would have thought. Great range for events with lots of people and tight spaces on the FF camera. Lens surprised me with the vivid nature of the photos that it took. My experiences are similar to those of garywakeling whose review is here:

Hoods are tough to find for this little beauty but the one I have on it is a quick detach that is firm, rotates, and does a great job. Letting my FF kit go and this lens is one of two that I will miss most.

It really is an unappreciated Gem of a lens then? Sad because it took a ton of great photos at the Robotics events.
