Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-DA 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 ED AL [IF]
Really good lens, for what it is i.e. super-zoom. Mine copy is sharp, at 18mm even wide open (but wit some aberrations), after ~30mm needs to be stooped down two steps to get best results. At 250mm soft to f8, best for f11-13 In range 18-55 much better then kit DA18-55, less aberrations, better sharpness and in general faster. Where kit at 55mm is f5.6 this lens is f4.5 up to 70mm. Sadly you might need some post processing software to get rid of vignetting and distortion at 18mm. f3.5 to around 22mm f4 to around 35mm f4.5 to 70mm f5.6 to 170mm Lens has obvious limitations it is soft at 250mm, at f11 is better but mainly in centre of an image (which is usually main scope off the telephoto) happily for 200mm and f8 it is really decent. Bokeh is not so bad, lens can imitate macro capability pretty well which can be seen on attached image. While it is really good for range 18-70mm everything above is simply added value so if you can buy it for around 250$ it is really worth considering. It is perfect lens for sunny day or holidays very versatile, definitely worth buying if versatility is most important factor. 18 centre 18 extreme 70mm 100mm
