Perfect for APS-C

Crazy Carl, B&H Photo
16 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I had gotten a 50mm, but for indoors you have to get a mile away to get the shot you want. Auto-focus is noticable but not extremely loud. Pictures come out great. Its downfall is that it's hard to get the lens cap off with the tulip in position.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Lens Cap Diff With Tulip

AMD, B&H Photo
30 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Personal use. multi purpose lens. it is all-round lens and is just like the 50mm in the 70's. then perhaps, the world wasn't as congested as now; photographers use to have plenty of space to maneuver for taking a nice exposure with the standard 50mm lens, I think the 35mm will be the standard lens...

Bang-For-Buck Lens

Traditionlist, B&H Photo
14 February 2009
  • Excerpt: IQ is good. Had never tried the Limited though. AF performance is quite similar to FA 50mm/1.4 but focal length is much more useful - as using APS-C. Slight back-focus on K10 & K20. No biggie as I've adjusted the cameras to compensate.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Rugged
  • Cons: Slight back-focus

Good general lens

25 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Sharp, fast, handles well. The only reason I did not rate it 5 stars is that I have not found it as useful as I originally thought I would. I find myself more often using the 16-45 or the 50-135mm zooms. However, it is an excellent lens if you want the focal length.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Quick Focus, Sharp Focus

Great value for money

Stefan Laarm, B&H Photo
12 April 2008
  • Excerpt: I use this lense with a K10D for every day/portable and low light photo. The build quality is good. Photo's are sharp already at f/2 and also in the corners. Color is good. Manual focus adjustment is often necessary when the background is too homogenous (might be the camera's fault).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow focus in bad light
