Very nice and lens!

By

I really like this lens. Very wide opening, but beware of the depth of field ;-)

Great, easy to use lens

By

from Kearney, NE  -  Photo Enthusiast

I originally purchased it for use on my K-10, but it now stays on my k-01 as my standard lens.

This is the best lens I have ever had...

By

from Turkey  -  Casual Photographer

It is very enjoyable to take indoor and low light phots with this lens. I have Sigma 17-70mm lens as walkaround lens but after this lens I generally prefer to use pentax. And also it makes very good bokeh.

Small, cheap wonder

By

from Santiago, Chile  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a small and cheap lens, but the results are really good if stopped down a bit. Personally I do not use this lens much as my primary interest is landscapes, but when I need a fast lens this one does the job nicely.

Love this lens!

By

from Hastings, NE  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this lens to photograph my kids (3 & 7 yrs) and my 2 pets, A LOT!. I love how crisp and clean my shots are and the lens is fast so perfect for chasing kids and pets. The bokeh is lovely too. The lens is also fairly small and light weight so it is easy to get carry around without straining my neck. All-in-all, I have yet to be disappointed. This lens makes me look like I know what I'm doing. Anyone interested in shooting portraits should have this little lens in their bag.

new favorite lens

By

from Alexandria, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this lens because I have an unhealthy obsession for bokeh, and it delivers! It's also great in low light situations. The focal length is perfect and the autofocus is fast. I was surprised by how small and lightweight yet durable it seems. I like having the option of using the aperture ring; I think it makes it look classy.

Glad I bought it

By

from Gulffport, Mississippi  -  Casual Photographer

I am a newbie so I am not the best to be reviewing lenses, however, I really like this lens a lot. Its small, lightweight, simple to use, sharp, great in low light, and relatively inexpensive. You cant go wrong with this lens. Id say its a must have.

Fast Lens - Great for Portraiture

By

from Texas  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

if you have never owned a fast lens like this you will be amazed at what you can shoot with this thing. interiors won't require flash with the aperture wide open, and subject isolation is great with beautiful bokeh. super sharp. if you put it on a dslr though this is not a standard focal length lens. on a dslr this lens is roughly the equivalent of a 75mm lens. perfect for general portraiture, low light and closeups. my new favorite lens.
