If I didn't already own the DA-L version of this, I would be all over the lens. It's a handy compact zoom and surprisingly good image quality. Agreed that the retraction mechanism is a bit wonky but once you get used to it, it's fine. A perfect match for the K-S2, K-70, etc., line of DSLRs. I have used it on my K-01 and KP to make those cameras ultra portable! The HD version is supposed to have great IQ, better than my smc coated one. Good luck with the sale!

Honestly, I haven't had any issues with the retraction mechanism. It seems to do its job. Sure, it's plastic and these moving parts are plastic but they seem designed to last a while.
Being all plastic makes this a very light lens and being compact, it's a perfect walk-around. I like the HD coating colors and flare resistance, and it's sharp enough for most uses. Add WR and an in-lens motor and how can you go wrong with this lens? Oh and taking pictures at 18-21mm and f4 it's perfectly sharp and I can take pictures at 1/15s hand held, so being f4 doesn't really represent a problem most of the time.

A fine lens, better than should be expected.
