That has an A setting? Looks like the A03 then. And no doubt a nice lens!

Yep thats right, how much do they average price wise?

Is it as good as the K02?

Couldn't say on either account.

First, prices are all over the map with some bargains still to be found if one is patient or shoots something other than Pentax and some high prices in Pentax-land.

Second, without trying two lenses side by side I can't comment on quality. Probably it's a "much of muchness" as my mum says. Meaning, they'd be much the same. All the other factors (subject, light, composition, etc.) are more important than small differences between lenses.

This variant has three things going for it: close focus, "A" setting, Komine build. It has two strikes against: Ricoh pin and f/2.8 maximum aperture. How it compares depends on how one values those five aspects.

My 28 is Tokina, but I have a 24 2.8 I'm trying to identify.

I have not mapped out all the 24mm lenses in the same way as the 28s. But all the 24mm variants I have seen have an equivalent 28mm. (Doesn't work vice versa since there are more 28mm variants.)

So you can work by the 28mm list.
