This new fast telephoto from Pentax is not only optically astounding but also supports the ultrasonic autofocus drive system for fast and quiet operation. Special optical glass including ED glass elements, aspherical lens elements and outstanding lens coating provide for excellent contrast characteristics, a consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and a particularly clear rendition of fine details.

As well as the outstanding imaging attributes, PENTAX engineers have raised the mechanical characteristics of the lenses to a state-of-the-art level. Built-in ultrasonic motors (Supersonic Motors) in the lenses provide for extremely quiet and fast autofocusing. Both lenses are also weatherproofed and protected from penetrating dust by appropriate seals. The front lens elements of the lenses use the special Pentax SP - "Super Protect" - fluoride coating technology. This nano-technology protects the front lens against dust, finger marks or smearing, making the lenses exceptionally easy to clean. The Pentax "Quick Shift Focus System" allows the photographer to manually alter the focus point at will without having to take the camera out of the autofocus mode.

About Me Casual user
So far I have just used this lens for local wildlife. The reviews all said that the autofocus was quick, but I wasn't expecting quite how fast it was, or quiet. The quality of the lens is of the standard I would expect of a Pentax lens - top quality! . It is a little bit on the heavy side, for me that is not a problem, but maybe for others.

Taking photography to a new level
I bought this lens knowing that I was going on safari in Kenya. The results are absolutely amazing, takes photography up to a new level. Photographing animals in low light needs judicious use of a beanbag/tripod as slow shutter speeds are conducive to blurred photographs. The quick-shift focusing ring is light as anything and getting the right focus is enhanced so that you don't have too many throw-away photographs.

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I have had this lens now for a couple of years and it rapidly became my favourite and most used. As most of my photography is wildlife oriented, this one fits the bill nicely and is great for birds and other wildlife as well as larger insects. The best dragonfly shots I have ever taken were with this lens and the detail it can produce is stunning. Some may feel it's a bit short for wildlife but the crop quality is so good it doesn't hurt too much not having a 500mm lens instead. I have had great results with the Pentax AFA 1.7xTC and a Kenko 1.5xTC, although there are currently no SDM compatible TC's available / made. Nevertheless, a superb all-rounder and highly recommended.
