It is brand new, so there isn't much out there - a couple of users have it, and so far the initial results are pretty positive (check out recent posts and you'll find a couple of threads, including a pretty thorough review). Pentax already has the 35mm F2.8 limited Macro lens, which is more than twice the price.

its pretty nifty to have but take note 35mm is pretty much a standard lens by 35mm standard.

those who are used to 18-55mm range may be in for a surprise.

It is actually in the database, but labeled as the DA L 35mm 2.4, the L standing for "light," I think, because it's more plastic (including the mount) and doesn't have the quick shift feature for focusing.

Looks like a good performer though!

Check this thread for a comparison between the FA35, DA35macro, SMC-A35 & this DA-L35mm, done by frank, one of the first people to test out the K-5 & DA-L35mm. It is very well done and shows the differences in focus and color.
