Great Inexpensive Weather Sealed Lens | Rating: ★★★★★
“Well so far I have to say that I like this lens. It’s light, easy to use, and weather sealed. We had a rain storm this weekend and I never had to worry about getting wet…but I did think about it since it was my first outing. Get this lens if you are looking for an inexpensive sharp and weather sealed lens. It was a no-brainer for me.” – by R. Rudolph

WR means moisture resistant, but Dist resistant is not listed | Rating: ★★★★★
“Fairly sharp lens. Lens construction seems to have good tight fit. Picture quality is good. There is enough detail to show off the 14 mpix of the K20d sensor. “Shift focus” is kind of a nice feature. When K20d/K10d is set in auto focus, and the shutter button is not pressed down, the lens can be focus manually by simply turning the focus ring. No need for push/pull of focus ring for manual focus like the Tokinas.” – by Kelvin Yee

Really sharp lens | Rating: ★★★★★
“Bought this lens 3 weeks ago and I am really pleased with it. I actually replaced the old 18-55 kit lens Version I with this lens and I can really see the difference in contrast and sharpness .. So much better. Definitely a great lens for the price.” – by D. Pinault
