  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens as a gift for my dad who recently purchased Pentax K-3. Very light weight. Sufficient sharpness wide open.

  • Excerpt: I mostly use the lens to document hikes with my dog. The pictures are posted on our blog. It is sharper than the kit lens ( which I badly scratched) though it seems to have less contrast. That is easily fixed in processing.

  • Excerpt: Image quality vs cost is very strong on this lens. Could not resist adding to my collection due to holiday sale prices. Plastic mount is slight negative but I can over look the plastic mount and lacking lens hood for the image quality.

PLASTIC BUILD THAT IS OK BUT CERTAINLY NOT HIGH END - GREAT OPTICS FOR THE PRICE - AVERAGE PERFORMANCE IN LOW LIGHT

  • Summary: In good lighting there is no beating this lens in ordinary close range or moderate range photography. I've taken some most excellent pictures with this Pentax 21987 DA 35mm f/2.4 AL Lens for Pentax Digital SLR cameras using my Pentax K30, K5 and K100D.

Amazing little lens

Weldon Berger, Amazon

  • Summary: Prior to buying this lens, I've just been using the 18-135 WR that I bought with my K-30. I wanted to try a prime and this was the cheapest one I've seen that got decent reviews. I've been using it for about a week; I'll update in 6 months or so. I'm impressed so far.
