Doesn't leave my camera very often

Manilo Japson, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Photographers who have been around for a while and know a bit of history, know that Pentax has often delivered good quality equipment. Pentax users are a resilient bunch ever unbending to the likes of Canon and Nikon. And yes, they do have a reason for that. Pentax may not spend a lot on marketing (hence such little brand awareness amongst the younger generations), but heck I guess they're too busy spending every penny they've got actually making great products instead...

Best Pentax Prime I have ever used!

Rolland Ericta, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I am a Canon shooter (I shoot a 5DM3) and this 15mm Limited prime is the main reason why I am still hanging on to my Pentax cameras. Great piece of glass. When paired with my Pentax K5, it is my ultimate landscape setup. Unbelievably sharp at F8.

A fine piece of machinery

Larry, Amazon
26 November 2013
  • Summary: Although I have only used the lens once for a walkabout in town to test it, it appears to be a quality lens as already commented on...just a bit of information if anyone plans to use a protective filter...which I prefer to do...due to the fixed lens hood the first filter I tried did not work...I now have a Hoya NXT HMC UV filter mounted...which does not impede the lens hood and is threaded on the outside so the supplied lens cover will screw onto it...

Wide angle. Good quality

Zhangmiaouu, Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent wide angle lens, it's a nice lens for building, scenery, and landscape pic taking.. I don't know how about 14mm, but this one is very good. It's limited lens, worthy of its name...

Beautiful glass.

Torashi, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: This is the most underrated Pentax lens, but it is a real gem. Pros: -Close focusing (less than the specified 17cm). -Large aperture. Shallower DoF if you need it. Best results @f/5.6. -Filter thread. -Autofocus with full time manual override. -IF (Internal focusing). Cons: -Weight (solid metal construction, metal filter threads). -77mm filters, no stacking due to vignetting, huge lens hood (takes up to much space, so I left it in the original box and stowed it away).

Great lens, but wish the images were a little more sharp.

Heath A. Wright, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a fantastic lens, however as others have stated photos are not as sharp as they shod be at lower f-stops. At f2.8, unless you are focused to infinity, the in-focus image is not tack sharp even with a tripod. The lens does create a nice bokeh however, and for landscape shots it is nice to have a fast prime lens to handle low-light conditions. Lens performs best with an aperture starting at f4.0 for shots that have closer subjects.

Great lens

EK Terashima, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • Summary: Highly recommended lens. I wanted a fast, wide angle lens to complement the rest of my collection, and this one fits the bill. I take a lot of pictures for official ceremonies indoors, so this matches up well with my portrait lens.
