I have the older 28-200, it has done very well for me on my K20. And, I don't pixel-peep, or have a 4K display. Looking forward to printing some 8x10s out on an Epson 3880 to see how they look. Thanks for the post!

Does anyone know if this lens has a built in motor on the Pentax model (not screw drive). Thanks

Should be built-in... can't remember which acronym in the name is for the drive... There is an A-M switch on the lens, should have a motor...

This does not have focusing motor built in.

Sigma has HSM motor

TriopicaMonkey, are we talking about the same lens? The pic from the page on BuyDig shows "XR" as part of the lens name. I believe this is the correct user manual from the Tamron Website:

http://www.tamron-usa.com/assets/pdfs/18-200di-II_manual.pdf

The reviews on B&H says one of the "pros" about the lens is its "Fast/Accurate Autofocus"

Hope the links work, Edge is a bit different...

I wonder how this compares image quality and performance-wise to replacing the 18-55 and 50-200 kit lenses?

So, I'm getting a little confused whether this is disputing TropicalMonkey's assertions that this is screw drive based. My screw drive mechanism on my K20D doesn't seem to be working all that well (although lenses with built in motors work fine), so if is a screw drive lens, then it won't work for me.
