Summary: I LOVE this lens! It is delightfully compact, solidly built, and perfectly sharp and contrasty. I wouldn't mind if it were faster for lower light situations, but not if it came at the cost of image quality throughout. I believe the design goals were excellent, as is the execution.
Excerpt: I own several Pentax lens but wanted a wide prime that was small enough to hike with in the Alps. This Pentax 15mm meets my need for an excellent landscape lens with great color and sharpness. It will work well on my K3.
Summary: Outstanding build quality. All metal construction. Optics are flawless. Edge to edge sharpness at f/5.6 and above. I typically use this focal length at f/8 or f/11 so results even better. Colors are rich and nicely saturated. Auto focus is on par with all other screw drive lenses I use.
Summary: This piece of glass is a must have! Very light, yet classy. Has the built-in hood and screw cap. Just started taking photos with this for landscapes and street photography and am already in awe. Works great indoors too! This one's a keeper. Do not order separate/custom hoods - not compatible!!
Summary: If you take lots of shots indoors or along streets, or if you are an artist who needs to take sharp, high-quality photos of your paintings, then this is your new best friend. Not only will your photos be sharp and have good colors, but you will almost never need to use your flash.
Summary: A beautiful lens. Overpriced though. You will be wanting a practical lens cap instead of the screw-on version that comes with it... you just have to find one that is small enough not to interfere with the built-in hood.
Excerpt: I bought the 20-40mm and 15mm to replace the 16 - 45mm lenses. Although the 16-45 is a good lens, I was keen on extra sharpness and around quality. The 15mm is similar in sharpness in the centre but has far better sharpness in the corners and better contrast.
