Well built, Smooth, Aasy to handle
This lens I use on digital, crop. Of all the Pentax lenses I use I find this lens not sharp on the digital camera. I like the range, the price was more than fair, but I just can't be pleased with it. If you shoot film, (I heard the film is again available), this lens might work fine, but on crop digital, I am not crazy about it. This compared to the other lenses in the Auto 110 that are great performers in my opinion. I would still get it to have the whole set as GAS is forcing me, but...
Could be the lens, though I got it New in the Box, but again, doesn't ring my bell.

Handy zoom range to walk around with
Not wide enough sometimes
I will point out that this was used with Film
It is not a bad lens, but the other more smaller lenses makes this lens not always on the camera. It has good sharpness, but I must say that the cam inside is not always accurate and the very shallow rim for the front make this lens very prone to glare and loss of sharpness. So compared to the smaller prime lenses, the contrast is a little loose and it is at best a quick snap shot lens.
It still is a nice lens when you want more flexible and now a days you can cook in some contrast via post-processing. Consider getting an appropriate hood for it and be sure while zooming that you check your focus carefully.
