From the pictures it looks to me to be around 20mm, and of moderate speed for a prime (say, 2.8?). As for a specific lens; nothing jumps out at me immediately aside from the lack of distortions in the first shot and my roll-of-the-dice guess would just be a waste of your time, given the wide variety of lenses at this FL and my total inexperience with any and all of them.

On the other hand, after inspecting your profile, I've found that there are only two of your lens's that come close to these criteria, and only one of them is a prime (which I believe this lens is) I'll just say that I think it's the fifth lens you list; to give the next posters more of a sporting go at your pictures!

Well... this lens is not listed in my profile!

In fact I haven't used it much because of one that is listed there. It is not very common but not totally uncommon either.

maybe something around 28mm f2.8, but because you said it is not common, nut not uncommon too, so ...

K30/2.8 ?

Well then, I suppose I could hazard a roll of the dice after all

A 20mm F2.8

So far no hits (although the correct FL is mentioned in one post). I looked through lots of profiles of the folks in the thread here and so far haven't found it listed which is kind of strange...

I don't think it is a prime. 1st picture looks wider than second, even if it is very hard to judge from such different subjects.

Hmmm... looks like I goofed again - this doesn't seem to be a common lens at all. Strange because I would've thought it would be a pretty good candidate for a walk-around lens especially for dSLRs and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. It's older brother is reputed to be rarer, it's larger and more expensive, but from what I can tell this one does pretty well.

Probably time to give it away. it's the A 28/2, a very nice lens IMO, especially for low light work.

One recently went on ebay for a little bit more than 210 Euro. Not that bad.

Looks like a 50-55mm. Warm colors. I'd guess K55/1.8, wide open, more or less.
