Just ordered the DA 35mm f2.4

Happy Birthday to me... The "Plastic Wonder".

Pretty stoked about it. It will be the perfect shoot-around-the-house lens for candids (and more). It's currently on sale at B&H for $210. Free shipping.

I am a very budget minded Pentaxian. This will be the first new lens I've ever owned, and the second auto focus lens (after the kit lens). I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Happy Birthday, Be sure to post some images when you have time to play.

It also pleases me than I am not the cheap butt here.

Very good buy, i love mine. Just that nowadays i have been using my Tamron 28-75 more. But the 35mm is the best value for performance lens among all pentax lens!

I'm very interested in reading what you like (and don't like) about it. I'm rather a standard lens junkie, so anything in that FL range is of interest to me.
