That is the second kit lens. There is at least one professional who uses it. It's very good for the price.

You can read what some of our forum members think of the lens here, at our lens database:

Best of luck

I don't own that lens so can't offer an opinion on it. But I want to point out that every Pentax lens made in the last half-century or so will fit your K200D, although some of them (all with "Takumar" in their name) require the use of an inexpensive adapter.

Basically, if it says "Pentax" on can use it.

I recently acquired one of these at a local Circuit City. If you have any near you, you might poke in and ask if they have any Pentax Lenses left behind the counter. Evidently they must have sold them a few years back, and some stores still have stock. I got mine for about $90.

In any case, I'm impressed with the results from this lens. Small, lightweight and pretty fast focusing on my K100D Super. Here's one of my first shots taken last Monday.

The DA 50-200 is a very good lens for the price. I had one but had to sell to finance 50-135.
Look in the Pentax lenses database. There's also a photozone review of it.
Good luck,
