Large zoom range lenses such as these unfortunately have an old reputation for being convenient and affordable, but of poor optical quality compared to primes or pro level zooms. This lens (along with the 18-300mm equivalent) dramatically improves the optical quality compared to past designs. That fact alone makes this lens worth the price of admission. Yet Sigma has, an added bonus, greatly improved on overall build quality, exterior aesthetics, autofocus speed and accuracy, blur reduction, and autofocus sound levels compared to past designs. Bravo and halleluiah! Sigma (along with Tamron) have completely revamped their entire lineup of lenses after 2013, and both companies have reaped the benefits of improved reputation in the industry. This lens is one such benefactor of the rebranding and restructuring campaign. Further it can be generally assumed that Sigma's Contemporary line mostly have an edge overall on optical quality and autofocus speed and accuracy compared to the Tamron equivalents. Tamron tend to prioritize weather sealing as a feature stand out to Sigma. This is such the case with this lens. For Pentax cameras, weather sealing would have been a welcome feature considering Pentax leads the industry in this category. However, it's only a deal breaker if your priority is to have sealing. Otherwise, this lens is absolutely a winner for its category. If you are in the market for multi-purpose wide range zoom lens in the Pentax mount, this is your best option as of the date of this review. Tamron doesn't even make a new generation super zoom for Pentax, and Pentax doesn't have a rebranded version of Tamron's offerings in this category as they have historically offered. From wide angle to tele, and even for close ups- this lens delivers excellent images. It's small and light, well built, fast and accurate to focus, super quiet, has excellent optical stabilization, and it's low price makes it a huge bang for the buck. Perceived value couldn't be better. Further, there is no zoom creep even though Sigma has included a zoom lock switch. The HSM focus ring moves on the outside, but it does at least include a rudimentary focus distance scale. It's compatible on Pentax cameras that feature the KAF3 mount onward (so make sure your model has that mount). Any of the older KAF mount cameras will not give you full functionality with the lens, but it can still be used to some degree on every Pentax DSLR. My only minor gripes are the lack of weather sealing and, the f/6.3 maximum aperture at 200mm, yet these are by no means deal breakers- at least for me. With Pentax continuing support and development of DSLRS (K3 Mk III for example), there's reason to believe that fact alone will help to support purchases of these lenses in the future. Therefore, Sigma should highly consider making a new version of this lens to include sealing of some sort (preferably throughout the lens) ,and at least an f/5.6 max aperture at 200mm. Many would gladly pay the resulting higher premium for these improvements, including myself. Pentax and Tamron should resolve business tidings so as to offer a either a rebadged Pentax version or a Tamron version of a lens in this class. This would give more choice to Pentax enthusiasts and help to bolster the brand. Pentax are now one of the last manufacturers to support DSLR development and will continue too in the future. Pentax/Tamron/Sigma, please consider offering more lenses in the Pentax mount in the future.

This lens is only compatible with Sony A-mount cameras.
