  • Excerpt: Somewhat over-rated. It does all that a rectilinear 15mm lens should do. You can get some spectacular ultra-wide shots, although if you don't watch out you'll end up with lots of sky in your photos.
  • Pros: Small, light
  • Cons: AF problems, not sharp unless stopped down

  • Excerpt: said about this lens. I agree with everything, including the apt description of the character of the DA vs FA lenses. It's a great little lens and unique in DSLR land across all manufacturers. Field curvature is it's #1 issue being so small. But I have no intention of dumping it any time soon. I've taken all kinds of my favourite shots with it.
  • Pros: small, sharp, contrast, build, built in hood
  • Cons: screw on cap (yuck), field curvature

  • Excerpt: This is a well-built, sharp little lens. I wish it was a little wider - 13mm instead of 15mm - but it's a great match for the K-01: at last a Pentax setup I can carry in my backpack!
  • Pros: sharp, small
  • Cons: can't use lens cap with filter

  • Excerpt: A great wide lens, it is unique if you are looking at a prime with AF. And this was a deal breaker for me.
  • Pros: size, quality, quick shift focus override, keeps value well
  • Cons: price, maybe suede lining of the cap and hood, no aperture ring

  • Excerpt: I wrote a review for this lens quite a while back, and now that I've spent another year and a half with it, I'm taking some time to rewrite it.
  • Pros: center sharpness, flare resistance, size, build quality, built-in hood
  • Cons: slow speed, field curvature, coma wide open
