Now the K55/1.8... :)

The K55/1.8 came today! Here are a few shots of it with the K20:

I cropped this one a little:

Again, this is one sharp little lens with nice color rendition. If it doesn't rain too much, I'm hoping to get out with both it and the M28 this weekend on the film body and play around with them a little more.

Nice shots, enjoy the lenses. I have a K55/1.8 and a K28/3.5 that I bought back when they first came out in the 70's, love them both. The K55/1.8 is still my favorite prime.

Nice shots Heather. I have got both lenses myself and quite enjoy using them, mainly on my DS and ME Super (I use AF lenses on my K10D). Congrats!

I bought the K55 a few months ago but really haven't used it much. But every time I see a thread about it I kick myself for not using it. I payed about the same price as you did. Can't lose!
