Bump!
could be interested; exploring and experimenting with pentax dslr by picking used equipment now - have k5 now and m42 lenses adapted

Results: not quite all there, going to sell eventually. don't necessarily want to do down the road again, just with AF type lenses.

Did you find these match their high ratings in the high eights and nines (particularly for sharpness), as the Forum indicates?

If so, why did you move on from them so quickly? Would like to acquire to play around until I jump within or out of the platform. But want to step UP from the m42's adapted, without a lot of cost, that could last awhile and maybe even toss later.

your thoughts?

In one acronym? LBA - looking to pick up a Pentax 50-135 to be my main WR lens and the 55-300 for a longer telephoto.

It probably all depends on where you're coming from and what you're looking to do. I've never really used these since I have the Tamron 17-50 F2.8 which (along with the Pentax 16-50 and Sigma 17-50) is about as good as it gets in that focal length for a zoom. (PDAF frustrations aside with the Tamron...it's now working well enough with a -10 AF adjustment). I didn't get a chance to really shoot anything in the 50-200mm range yet (winter sucks )

I'd say based on my limited testing, both of these are great lenses but like any have their own set of trade-offs. What are your goals? I would not like to be stuck in a low light environment with either but the 18-50 allows me to pack a 50 F1.8, a K-S2 and the 18-50 in a Manfrotto Bella II which was meant for mirrorless cameras - I'm going to miss this.

If sharpness is your primary concern, I'd say stick to a prime (the 35MM F2.4 is IMO my favourite lens thus far all things considered - sharp wide-open, small, light, fast & accurate AF and inexpensive so you're not worried about bumping it - just wish it was a tad faster.) Having said that, both the 18-50 and 50-200 are great stopped down and usable wide open (I would definitely rather use my 50 F1.8 for low-light / shooting wide open though)

Manfrotto Bella II
