    Cons: Odd focal length. A bit long for normal, a bit short for portrait. No manual aperture selection.

    Pros: Tiny. On a kx who needs mirrorless? Sharp, colours pop and great contrast.

    Summary: This is the lens that converted me to primes. I only use zooms for snapshots. I now have three Pentax ltds and a few 70s-80s k mounts.

    Cons: Lenscap not easily screwed on and off. Don't use the manual focus ring. It's to small.

    Pros: Supersharp, no distortion at all. Great fun to use as standard lens, both on K-r and K5. Relatively cheap for such quality.

    Summary: I love this lens!

    Cons: Almost too small!

    Pros: Unbelievably small--carry anywhere. Fast AF. Limited build quality. Great image quality, even wide open.

    Summary: Great little lens. Can only complain about image quality if you also have the 35 LTD Macro--which is in a league of its own.

    Cons: Not as fast as I would like. The hood is nice, but I replaced the cap with a Fuji film cap (wich fits nicely on the hood)

    Pros: Outstanding image quality, with nice resolution and superb contrast; really small and light (so I always carry it in my bag) Look nice on the camera. A joy to use

    Summary: I always carry on the lens.
