Excerpt: I bought this lens used in less than perfect condition at a bargain price. This is my go to lens when I want to travel light. This seems to turn my K5 into a slightly oversize point and shoot. Sharpness is incredible for such as a minuscule lens. My only gripe, and I really can't count it as a con due to its used condition, there is a noticeable wobble in the inner barrel.
Excerpt: Excellent lens. My only gripe is that the inner barrel is a bit wobbly - not what I expected from everyone raving about the build quality. That being said, I paid $230 for it and it is excellent optically, so it is not a big issue.
Pros: excellent iq, very high acutance, usable at any aperture, fun
Excerpt: Top quality lens. Very positive feel to it. It is light and unobtrusive, perfect for everyday use. Originally the idea was to use this lens for landscape work but have not had a chance. So I have found it to be a delight with flowers.
Excerpt: Just picked up a used copy still with one year left on French (EU) warranty plus Hoya filter for about half the cost of all new ... great first shots and still need to put it through its paces .. rating may rise later along with a sample capture or two ... wish that I had purchased one much earlier.
Excerpt: This is a fantastic lens. I recently purchased a K-01 and quickly bought this lens as its first companion. I think everybody has said it all but here are my thoughts as how it works with my K-01. It is a fantastic lens as an everyday buddy to the K-01. Small and compact, it constantly stays on the camera and I find that in most situations I can just use this one lens.
Excerpt: You can simply glue it to your camera and shoot without worring about CA, flare, sharpness wide open or anything else. It`s also very small and light so it`s one of the best walkaround prime lenses ever made. I compared colors from 18-55wr to DA40 and while 18-55wr is very good lens DA40 colors are simply amazing. My best lens so far.
Pros: sharp, nice rendering, size, build quality is amazing, colors
