Excerpt: I recently purchased this wide angle lens for my Pentax K10D to use for interior photo's of cabinets and other millwork that we manufacture at where I work. Being a rookie at doing this I was extremely pleased with the photos that I took, made me look like a pro.
Excerpt: Excellent prime lens for landscape and travel. Picture quality is outstanding. Solid built and light. I have the silver one and it is beautiful. Some users complain about the screw in lens cap.. I bought a SENSEI clip-on lens cap[$] to solve the problem.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I'm comparing this jewel to my old 24 mm F2.8 Pentax (full frame lens) from the mid 80's. That was a great lens, albeit faster, but manual. Sadly I left that with an African friend along with an ME Super.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Have been using this lens for just over a month now, it's daily driver a replacement for my DA16-50mm, and I have yet to be disappointed. It's just a joy to use. And the image quality is just excellent, tack sharp.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: Amazing, vivid colors and incredibly sharp. I needed something to replace my Sigma 17-70mm lens (which had been very disappointing) and decided to go with a prime. Perfect for landscapes, tight quarters, and night photography.
Excerpt: This lens is just as good as the reviews I read everywhere before deciding to buy it. I initially purchased a used copy and had to return it due to lack of sharpness in the corners and excessive chromatic aberration. I returned the used one and purchased a new copy which works great.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Smooth Focus, Strong Construction
Summary: I knew this lens would be great for taking photos of rooms, landscapes and close ups of the noses of family members. However, one finds it works in lots of situations. It is no way a walk around lens, but it is a prime I will want with me and will use often.
Excerpt: Pentax excels at small, brilliantly constructed prime lenses. Opinions will vary on whether the middle lens in a 3-prime set should be the 21mm, 31mm, 35mm, or 40mm. And for short tele, you've got the 70mm and 77mm. But for wide, this is it...and it's a great lens, too.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
