This is a great little full frame wide to short tele zoom produced by Pentax between 2001 and 2004 - probably not quite up to the quality of the current 24-70 and 28-105 offerings but it's a great all-rounder and its size and weight make it a great little travel lens.

This SMC Pentax-FA 24-90mm F3.5-4.5 AL [IF] has caps and original hood. It gets mixed reviews, mainly due to its lightweight "plasticky" feel but it's full-frame and having the slightly wider 24mm comes in very handy quite often. It's very capable of producing high quality results, probably its weakest length is at 90mm but stopping down a little improves things. I have 2 copies (I always take one on foreign holidays due to its versatility) and will keep hold of the other.

Had mine since 2004. Bought an MZ-S and this was the must have glass. It's better than the 16-50 IMO and actually a lot more usable. It's often on a K-1 and just as effective on any APS-C as a "street combo". Focus is more than fast enough and accurate.
