Thank You PENTAX for the DA 35MM LTD I am in love!

I never thought I would ever get into macro. But this lens could change that. I got the DA 35mm for product shots. I was warned about the IQ of this Pentax Gem. When a photog I know who has shot with Nikon for 25 years. Also has some pentax gear said "I have never seen anything like this" That hit my LBA nerve! This Lens brought a tear to my eye!

Just picked up one of these myself. It's petite, well built, fast focusing, and very sharp. The built in hood is a big plus. I bought a used k100d to put it on. They're made for each other I think. What a sweet combo.

Yeah, it's definitely a banger. I bought mine about six or so months ago, and it goes everywhere with me along with the DA 70 ltd.

Nooooooo....

(I might get one though if I could get that cashback thing since I'm not from the US. Maybe someone can help?)
