Pentax SMC 18-55mm Zoom Lens

 

The lens was received well packed and protected. I tried several pictures and they all came out excellent. This is a very good addition to my lens collection.

When I purchased the Pentax K7 camera, I had some older manual lenses that I used first. Those were not truly digital lenses, so there was a lot of manual futzing around with the settings.No problem they took decent pictures, but didn't allow me to...

This is the "kit lens" that came with my Pentax k200d. I have had the camera and lens for 18 months now and have taken thousands of pictures. I added two more lenses, a Pentax 50 mm, 1.4 and the 50-200 mm Pentax; yet the it lens it the one I rely on...

I have read lots of reviews of this lens and most of the time it is referred to as a "kit" lens. Originally that just meant that it was the lens that came with the camera body but I think it has become unofficial code for "cheap" or "the one the...

I got this lens in a kit w/ a K20D body (excellent overall camera). After looking at the positive reviews here I had to do a double-take, to see if we were talking about the same lens (we were) and the next question was, if, as some reviewers noted,...

I got the Pentax K2000 Camera that comes with the cheap version of the Pentax DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL. I say cheap because it uses the same glass but with a cheaper construction. Plastic mount and no lens hood. Pentax DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL II...

I wasn't very happy with the quality of the 18-55mm kit lens, but I did like the focal range. The newer, upgrade of the 18-55mm is a bit sharper...not the excellent quality of the DA 50-135, but it will be great for family snapshots! Glad I decided to...

I bought this lens as a cheap auto focus for my K20D when I went to China. the quality is great and from what I've seen the lens is fairly sharp, without much chromatic aberration. The only complaint I've had with it is that the auto focus doesn't work...

I was looking for a decent wide angle lens and had read about the AL I version of this lens. Upon researching more I figured out this version (AL II) of the 18-55 lens doesn't have the issues of previous 18-55 AL I. I was about to buy a Pentax SMC A...

Pentax SMC 18-55mm Zoom Lens

 

The low price on this lens comes from the build quality, not the optics quality. The lens is light and feels cheap, but the pictures it takes stand on their own. The focusing ring feels gritty, and it can be tough to achieve a perfect manual focus, but...
