Roscot, thanks for your review of the Pentax 28-105 3.2-4.5
Can you offer any advice about the Pentax 28-105 4-5.6. I'm wondering if its in the same league as the 3.2. Problem is I can't find a new 3.2 but can easily get the 4-5.6 (silver and black) lens for $189. Would this be worthwhile or would I be better served by waiting for 3.2 to come back in stock (god knows when). Freddy

Hey, thanks, guys. Your input really led me to a decision. I ordered the Pentax 28-105 SMC P 3.2-4.5 yesterday and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Alan, loved your pics. Great quality at 105 mm and a natural unsaturated quality to shots taken with the 28-105. I'll be referring to your site frequently.
Love this Pentax forum! I'll post some pics when I get the lens on my K100D.
Warmest regards, Freddy

I have had the 28-105 f3.2-f4.5 for about a year now. It is practically glued to my cameras. I can not explain it in an objective way, but this lens produces images with a quality about it that is just unbelieveable for a consumer lens. I am constantly amazed by it.

Here are some recent examples (If they don't show, keep hitting refresh, they will eventually come up:

Pentax K10D ,Pentax smc P-FA 28-105mm F3.2-4.5 AL IF 1/60s f/4.5 at 105.0mm iso320

Pentax K10D ,Pentax smc P-FA 28-105mm F3.2-4.5 AL IF 1/60s f/4.0 at 60.0mm iso125

Pentax K10D ,Pentax smc P-FA 28-105mm F3.2-4.5 AL IF 1/180s f/8.0 at 50.0mm iso200
I have to agree with roscot on this. Mine rarely leaves my camera. I just lov the lense.
