Excerpt: This lens has amazing image quality and this is without considering price. Super sharp at 2.8 and sharp from 2.4. I'd say it's as sharp if not better at f2.4 than my 40mm limited at 2.8(I don't have af auto adjustment though on my K01). Also no screw on cap and screw hood to deal with.
Pros: Sharp at 2.8, Low Cost, Slightly faster at 2.4, light, quick accurate auto focus, contrast, good resolution
Cons: No quickshift, plasticy, no hood included($9 on ebay) though, noisier compared to other screw drive af lenses
Excerpt: It's a very good (not the best) 35mm... a "normal" focal lenght. The most "immediate" angle of view, who reproduces the "center" of the human eye view. It makes ph. very very instinctive at the shooting and very "familiar" and direct, and so real, when you look at it. It' a good all around focal lenght (as the 50mm was on film). You can do almost everthing if you can move some steps back and foreward.
Excerpt: The lens exhibits great centre and very good corner sharpness at 2.4 already, and excellent sharpness across the frame when stopped down past 5.6. Contrast redention is also very good. The bokeh is quite smooth, but can get slightly nervous sometimes.
Excerpt: Hello Friends...this is my 1st review at pentax forum...This lens is realy a Gem as compared to its price,,,Its a must have lens..excellent for indoor photography..very light weight and sharp..I am attaching a picture of my Teacher in Photography Mr Jalil...U can check the sharpness in the cropped portion...Takecare all and enjoy this lens..
Summary: Lens doesn't feel cheap but light, but the photos it take are sharp especially around f/8. The colors are bright and I love it's low light performance. Going to try some long exposure shots tonight at the lake with some neutral density filters and I am excited to see the results.
Summary: Excellent little lens, a must have for quality photography on a budget. Very sharp and well built although is not metal but high quality plastic. I find myself using it more and more on my Pentax K30. Perfect for portrait photography. My only wish is that it were weather resistant.
