Item Description
This is an excellent lens. It has one flaw which I've tried to capture in a picture below. On the edge of the forward lens, there is a tear in the coating. In the picture, on the right, near the "HSM" part of the label. I never even saw this until I was taking the pictures to sell the lens. I've never had a complaint about the image quality, never had reason to notice this, but it's a flaw all the same so I have reduced the price in light of it. I have compared images from this lens side by side with the Pentax DA 18-135mm lens and find them comparable. I'm only keeping the Pentax because I of Pentax name-brand mysticism! Includes all original packing, original box, papers, everything it shipped with is here.

I shot some quick takes with this lens. It's a gloomy afternoon, so I did 2 shots out my window, one at 18mm and one at 125mm. The indoor shots likewise swing from the wide to the long zoom. The shots of the archaeological artifacts on the table are done under typical indoor office fluorescent lighting. The others are done with the lights off, only the 5:00 PM daylight on a very overcast, misty afternoon as the available light. Again, keeping the same basic frame, but zooming wide and then long. I shot these as DNG files, imported them into Lightroom, and exported them at a size appropriate to upload here. I didn't do any processing, so only whatever Lightroom does bringing the DNGs in and exporting to JPEG is what happened. I hope they help give you an idea of what the lens is like. One other oddity: Lightroom, and I'm guessing, the Pentax K3, thinks this lens is a Sigma 70-200 HSM. I have no idea why.
