I m still quite new to photography and Pentax Q lenses but I ve been impressed with the quality of the shots taken using this lens Pentax 06 15-45 . I was a little sceptical at first but am happy to say that I m happy with the lens and its performance. Only downside is it s made me want the 08 zoom lens even more now which is only a downside as it s the most expensive lens in the range :D.
