Item Description
I just picked up this lens on eBay earlier this week and finally took it out for an outing today.

I don't like it.

I can get some sharp shots wide-open on the long end or the short end, but it's not as close-focusing as I would like it to be.

Yes, it technically ticks all of the boxes:
- sharp (requires a steady hand, but it's definitely there - definitely sharper the more you stop down)
- compact
- macro mode
- VERY fast focus

But it doesn't tick this box:
- close-focusing

As with my DA 50/1.8, I do need to underexpose by between 1/3-2/3 EV...but I'm starting to think that it's just my K3 in general.

In either case, this lens is in great condition and glass is clear and everything works.

I was actually surprised at the speed of focusing - it's definitely faster than my DA 50/1.8.
