Excerpt: I bought this lens for taking night shots with my Pentax K-5. The lens is manual focus, but the Pentax version does have an auto position on the aperture ring so the camera will control the aperture.
Excerpt: I wanted this lens mainly for interior spaces in low light. The f/2.8 is excellent for that purpose. Outdoors of course is the main thing and there it really shines. Took it to Palo Duro Canyon recently and got some good photos with it.

Summary: Great lens. Just played with it one day but the pictures are so wide! in 2 weeks going to do a Milky Way shoot and that is why I got this lens. Cannot wait. Should capture some awesome pictures!

Summary: This lens is awesome! I bought it for my Pentax K-01 and it works really well. With Pentax models it does allow on screen digital aperture control while in Auto on the aperture ring of the lens and while in aperture mode on the camera.
Summary: I am a pentax user and the pentax 14 2.8 is expensive. For wide angle, manual focusing works just fine and saved me 2/3 of the money. Surprisingly this lens is extremely when the lighting condition is good, for example daylight outdoor.
Summary: I have high hope for this lens due to the so many positive reviews. OTOH, I don't have much expectations because it is so much cheaper than comparable Canon, Nikon or Pentax counter-part. Let me just get to the bottom. It is extremely sharp and has incredible resolution.
