If I did not already have this lens, I would buy it. Excellent lens. While I expect Pentax to put out a more modern version soon, I also expect it will be very expensive, much more than this lens. Buy this one; you won't be sorry.

Thank you sholtzma.
I agree on the rendering quality of this lens is top notch. Mechanically it can be modernised. But the image quality speak for themselves.

Well, the newly announced HD 24-70mm f/2.8 is a re-badged Tamron.
So if you want to get a proper Pentax designed from the ground up, give this one a go.

Hi! I can't afford to buy your lens, but I certainly wish that i could! The reviews are great. Your photographs are simply stunning! Great composition, fabulous rich colours without being oversaturated, wonderful dynamic range, and great lighting. My favourite is the grasses, with the lovely bokeh- the colours and lighting are moody and mysterious and beautiful! Great work. Sorry to see that you are selling all of your Pentax lenses. Good luck with the sale of this one!
