By far...

  • Summary: My favorite lens for my K20D. It gets amazing bokeh, great sharpness even when the aperture is wide open. I use it for everything. Great portrait lens. Also the seller I bought it from was great, especially considering I bought it used, which always seems like a risky purchase.

  • Summary: I have owned the DA 40mm f2.8 lens for about a year. I also own the Pentax DA 35mm f2.4 lens. My current camera is the Pentax K-5 iis. My first camera was the Pentax KR with the kit lens. Since I have received the DA 40mm f2.8 lens, I have not used the kit lens once.

Best all purpose lens by Pentax!

  • Summary: This is my first prime lens. Very light weight, easy to put on and off. Does not even look/feel like there is any lens on camera when this one is on. Good walk around lens. I used it for street photography, full body portraits and landscape photography.

  • Summary: I spent a lot of time researching what lens I wanted to add to my Pentax collection. I finally settled in on the DA 40. It's an incredibly sharp lens. I'm a professional photographer that has used a lot of different lenses over the years and this is one that won't disappoint.

best sub-$500 lens I have found yet

  • Summary: I believe this is the cheapest DA* lens and it doesn't let down from that category either. The autofocus with this on a K5 is extremely quick and accurate.

Pentax DA 40mm Pancake - My "Fun Lens"

James W. Turner, Amazon
12 June 2012
  • Summary: This is one of the tiniest (& coolest) true DSLR lens I've ever seen and it will come in very handy for candid portraits and street shots where you want to look less "professional photographer-ish" conspicuous, and your camera to be small, light-weight, and easy to use with one hand.

Great sharp, color rich lens that is so small you have to see it to believe it!

Faxanadu, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very nice prime. Pentax is known for their limited primes and this little guy does not disappoint. It is made out of aluminum and has a nice, solid quality feel to it. When matched up with my K-5 - it looks kind of funny. The lens is tiny and truly defines a 'pancake' lens.
