  • Excerpt: If you are reading this review, you're probably wondering about whether or not you should buy this lens. The answer is yes, yes you should. It is absolutely superb and only costs, what, $280 now? Why are you still reading this review? Go! Make your purchase!
  • Pros: Tiny, incredibly sharp, relatively inexpensive
  • Cons: Weird bokeh for point sources of light, could be faster

Great Prime Lens

  • Summary: This lens fills the gap between the DA HD 21mm and the DA HD 70mm Lens for me. I used the same subject for all three lens and took multiple shots with each lens. THE IQ either equaled or surpassed the results of the other two lenses. Color rendition is great for all three.

  • Excerpt: This is my second Pentax Limited Edition lens. The first (HD DA 21) was purchased in May of this year and never ceases to amaze me with magic hour landscape and urban street shots. The 40mm is very special too. Discrete and compact, it works well for walk-around and travel photography.
  • Pros: Image quality, flare resistance, true-to-life colour rendering, build quality, compact size, lens hood, standard 49mm filter size
  • Cons: None - I even like the screw off lens cap!

  • Excerpt: Mine is sharp. Very sharp. I shoot mostly film with a little digital on my K01. I've also owned the DA40XS, which I sold because I didn't like it any better than this lens. I've owned this one for maybe two years now, and ran tons of film through it.
  • Pros: Vibe, usability
  • Cons: Vignetting, if you dislike vignetting

  • Pros: Great resolution, dynamic colours, compact

  • Excerpt: The Pentax Limited lenses have a well-earned reputation. I owned this before but sold when finances were tight. This barely-used lens was priced low so I'm happy to own it again. Thanks Adorama for dealing in used gear and pricing it well!
