  • Excerpt: Bought this for using on a K-5 while engaging in dual sport motorcycle riding. Will be a good compact light-weight way to capture scenic photos. Anticipate it will also allow unobtrusive candid street shots.

slim and functional

Shawn T. Rutledge "ecloud", Amazon

  • Summary: Very slim. Focusing seems to make a bit more noise than with some other lenses, probably because the camera uses its own motor. All Pentax lenses are overpriced nowadays, but this one was a relatively good deal.

Value for money 40mm optics, but mounting is tricky

Muzammil "IncidentFlux", Amazon
16 March 2013
  • Summary: It's a Pentax 40mm f/2.8 lens. Image quality is as expected of a prime lens. Looks really good if handled correctly. Mounting it to the K-30 is a real pain and tricky. I have an 18-55 WR and 18-135 WR lenses, both are quality lenses and mount easily in the first attempt. Value for money optics.

Pancake de très bonne facture

  • Excerpt: Ayant acquis cet objectif avec l'achat de mon Pentax K-01, je peut vous dire qu'il est tout simplement excellent en terme de piqué et de rapidité de l'AF. Il propose un très joli bokeh même si l'ouverture n'est que de 2.8. Le seul truc qui pourrait manquer à certains puristes, serait le quick shift.
