The Pentax DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL is one of the kit zoom lenses currently sold combined with the K10D or the Pentax budget DSLRs. It is a DA series lens so it is dedicated to the APS-C format with a reduced image circle. Its field-of-view is equivalent to 27.5-84mm in the 35mm format.
The lens has no internal AF motor and relies on a slotted drive screw operated by the camera. As a result AF operation will generate a moderate degree of noise. The AF speed is extremely fast and surprisingly accurate on the K10D.
