Pros:
Cons:
Sharpness: 10    Aberrations: 9    Bokeh: 10    Autofocus: 9    Handling: 9    Value: 10    New or Used: New    Camera Used: Pentax K1   

Used a few times on Pentax K1 but with great satisfaction, for now I have decided that it will remain mounted on the camera for a long time to make the most of the colors of autumn. I did not notice hints of chromatic aberration photographing at f.8 the foliage at a fair distance. The definition is really good and, atlarge magnifications, holds up very well the pixels of the K1.
