Just got my Pentax 40mm f/2.8

Well after having read numerous reviews and asking around i finally bought my standard lens.

I hesitated between the Pentax 40mm f/2.8 and the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 , what made up my mind is the quality build of the Pentax and the excellent reviews and owner ravings.

f/1.4 is cool but i don`t think the Sigma is quite as sharp as the Pentax and crispy sharp pics is what i`m looking for.

As a matter of fact i also chose the Pentax knowing that it would be easier to resell if i wasn`t satisfied.

Taking it for a spin later today

You should be very happy with the 40mm. When I first purchased it, I was concerned about it being only f/2.8, but have no regrets. As a matter of fact, the three DA Limiteds are about all I use anymore. Although I cant wait for the release of the DA 300mm....

Yes i too thought that f/2.8 wouldn`t be enough , i`ll take your word for it , i mean coming from someone who has all 3 Limited lenses i`m sure you are only satisfied with the very best results.

Anyway i was very impressed with the build quality
