Early Daddy's Day Present: DA* 55 f/1.4

I haven't had much time to play with it yet but at first glance... I love this glass! It seems to focus well on my K20D without adjustment. And the focal length for candid portraits is perfect.

I know, this is a fairly worthless post since there's no meat to it. I just had to share my enthusiasm for this glass. Pics to soon follow.

I now need to find a home for my FA 50 f/1.4.

That's when you know your kids love you (what would a DA 35mm/f2.4 bring for a message?). Have fun with it.

Well Pentax Japan called me today and said they sold two lenses this week, so my guess is that you are getting the other one, being a yellow DA-L 35mm/f2.4 Congrats on that

Nice present! Congrats.
I had my reservations with that lens but when I got my 2nd copy (6months sfter first) I learned to love it. Terrific lens which deserves much more credit then it's given IMO.

Now stop wasting time reading and go and enjoy it...

The DA* 55mm f1.4 is a great lens. Especially for portraits.
