Don Gould's reviews
8 out of 10 points and recommendedGood focal length. Decent quality. Auto focus fairly goodlens extends if carried around neck. Must lock in 18mm position.
Recently purchased a Pentax K100D Super. Bought this lens as I do a lot of general travel photography and need and focal lenth without delay. I am no expert and just like reasonable quality shots.reviewed October 19th, 2007

Recently purchased this lens to use on Pentax K1ooD super. I am only an amateur and have little understanding used in test notes. However I have been happy with the lens. Image seems to be fairly sharp which is my main requirement. Build quality is reasonably good for the price. Barrel extends a long way but presumably this has to be. I have not experienced any "zoom creep".reviewed May 4th, 2008 (purchased for $275)
