I have a Pentax K-5...I have just recetly purchased the pentax DA* 50-135 lens and it has been wonderful! I had just about decided to go ahead and purchase the Pentax DA* 16-50 until I read alot of really scary reviews on that lens. Could someone who has this combination of camera and lens please tell me how it's working for you? I just can't afford a $12,000.00 lens if the camera and lens don't get along or if the lens itself still has a big issue regarding the SMC Motor breaking and all that other nightmare stuff I read... Thanks!

Hello... Ok, I am new at this and I am very interested in what appears to be an old post! I have a Pentax K-5 ... I just recently purchased the Pentax DA* 50-135 and it is indeed a great lens! I was pretty much determined to purchase the Pentax DA* 16-50 to complete my bag, until I read all this very negative reviews about this lens! I saw some Excellent photos that were taken with this lens and I read a few good reviews..but the Bad sounded pretty BAD!! I just don't have $12,000.00 to gamble on a lens..therefore, does anyone have this combination of lens and camera? What is your take on it?;)
Thanks for your help!!
