Great lens, but...

C. Autry "lawwwschoool", Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: Great lens, I love it. My favorite lens by far. I bought it new on Amazon for less than two hundr. less than 2 years ago--so the price has really shot up. Try to find a deal if you can, but the lens is so worth owning.

Great lens!

J. Hausmann, Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: The focus of this lens is spot on. For a fast lens with a shallow depth of field it focuses very well. It has great bokeh and good brightness. This is one of Pentax's great lenses an deserves to be a part of every Pentax owners kit.

Even after price increases, worth the purchase

Writeb "writeb", Amazon
19 August 2009
  • Summary: **Updating of original entry, which praised the lenses performance, but dinged the wacky price fluctuations up to $600+!** PRICING: Pentax bumped up the prices of their lenses around February 2009, changing the purchase of this lens from being a 'no-brainer' to at least something to be mildly...

Pentax 50mm FA

Richard Albeck, Amazon
31 May 2009
  • Summary: I love this lens. I forget how inexpensive it is. The low light capability and sharpness are great. I forgot how good it was in the old film days to have a kit full of f1.4 and f2.8 prime lenses. My exisitng light bride photos are going to be enhanced greatly.

This should be your kit lens.

John Narofsky, Amazon
20 January 2009
  • Summary: This lens is one of the three I bought with my k10d. I use it 85% of the time. I know that I had reservations about getting a prime lens. However, with a little movement, this lens gets out of your way. If a picture doesn't turn out, it's because I screwed up the settings on camera.

The lens I needed - and you might too!

T. Piatek, Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: I must say, stepping up to a DSLR from a point-and-shoot camera was one of the best decisions I've made regarding electronics; the picture quality is out of this world, and I can take shots in challenging lighting that allows me to get pictures of my ever-moving daughter that I never could dream of...

Fabulous lens for the price!

Cynthia Farr-weinfeld, Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: I've gotten several really good chances to put this lens to good use since I received it on March 6th, 2009. I have used it at nearly wide-open (f/1.8) which left the background nicely out of focus on some tulips I was photographing, and I used it on assignment for a magazine to photograph details...

  • Summary: To put it simply, this is the best lens I've ever used. Image after image turn out better than any other lens I've used -- including "L" glass from Canon! Beautiful bokeh.

Dale, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens should be in every Pentax/Samsung camera owners bag. This is the lens I would recommend that beginners use to learn their camera's with, As you can really "See" the changes with this lens when trying different settings on your camera. And the photos this lens produce is really amazing.

If you have kids, you need this lens

A. Arena, Amazon
17 January 2009
  • Summary: If you plan on taking pictures indoors, especially at your kids' events, you need this lens because of its 1.4 aperture ability. I am using it on my k10d, and it is my favorite lens, even thought it is not my most expensive lens.
