Very good for the size. Bit low in contrast, otherwise not bad. It's virtually the same as the Pentax version.

Like the WR version without the weather proofing. So pretty much the standard Pentax 50-200.
If you can't say something nice about Pentax, you won't say anything at all.

Apparently.

It's not quite the same, but yes tweaking afterwards usually does the trick.

Coatings are different though, at least for sure on the WR.
It's unknown what the Samsung less has or if it's the same as with the non WR pentax.

It's a great looking lens, Shane. I think having 50mm (rather than 70mm)at the short end will add considerably to its usefulness, particularly in the studio. That's like an "old" 75mm portrait length.

Keep well.

I got one of these as well, I quite like it for what I use it for. I will be selling it soon to help towards my 55-300mm lens.

I like the 50-200 (I have the WR version), I think it certainly punches above it's weight
