  • Pros: Compact and lightweight, High quality aluminium construction, Quick shift manual focus system, Built-in sliding hood (but see below), Good flare resistance, Almost no distortion, Small 49mm thread, doesn't require slim filters
  • Cons: Rather soft at F4 - F5.6, Hood design causes problems with filter use (particularly square systems)

  • Excerpt: This compact wide angle lens provides an angle of view equivalent to a 22.5mm lens on a 35mm format when mounted on a Pentax Digital SLR. It costs around £550 and and is part of the Pentax Limited range, which means it's one of their premium lenses.
  • Pros: Excellent sharpness in the centre of the frame, Compact and lightweight, Very good build, Fast focusing, Useful built in petal shaped hood
  • Cons: Sharpness towards the edges of the frame could be better
