Pros: To be a lens kit: chromatic aberrations often absent or reduced without the software of the machine, very good detail, excellent sharpness, af fast while using the car engine, because good focal range from wide angle to normal.

Cons: Slight vignetting at 18 mm, underexpose by 0.3 stop by 50mm, to be set, it remains a lens almost top!

Opinion: A lens that I do not think so good to be kit, I found the good as the 18-55 kit lens of sony that is best only for macro compared. A detail of the images really good, we're on the excellent sharpness, af just right for a Pentax, is not as slow as many say, aberrations really ridiculous and often absent in comparison of a lens as Sigma or Tamron to buy separately leggermenti more cari.rnHo found that all Pentax lenses, even the kit, are processed in a special glass that other "super famous" brands do not, allows this work, really quality above average despite the kit, which is why a little costicchiano more, and all those coins are worth more if I had to buy it separately but fortunately it bought in kit!

Pros: AF precise and fast, good sharpness and very good detail to be an "optical kit", color rendering and superior to other brands of the same "category kit" statement in line with the prices of basic optics, but of much higher quality compared to competitors

Cons: Slight vignetting between 18 and 22 mm

Opinion: Simply raise 2 stop and ... the scenery is very good. Although I have evolved in optical Pentax I own, I have to say that this will be in my team because it betrays me in detail and sharpness even if the quality is not at the top, but since it is an optical kit I must say that is far superior to competitors.rnLeggera vignetting between 18 and 22 mm, nothing that can not be correct in PP, even today the fashion like vignetting so it might be an advantage (for some) .rnNon it doesnt but by much more than it should give perspective of the base. Recommended for photos not binding and rapide.rnVoto 9 of 10 in the category of basic optical kit (to me), no comparison to its superior optics, because it is very different systems and quality

Pros: Cost, color rendering, fast and accurate auto focus

Cons: Slow, presents obvious vignetting @ 18mm, it is not very clear.

Opinion: Overall good optical kit supplied but also with machines of cattegoria superior to it (K10D). The value for money is good, but it is not a perspective from which one can not expect much. The vignetting at 18mm is very evident in some conditions and also limiting. The sharpness is not bad but not so good.
