Pentax 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 DA AL II

Its SQF tests were excellent, and distortion and macro performance very strong. Vignetting, not so much. It has an unusual lens shade with a window to let you poke a finger in to adjust a filter.

Standout Spec: Macro performance. At 9.3-inch close focusing, magnification was a tight 1:2.6 at 55mm.
