Only had the lens for a short while and ended up trading it for the F 28mm but here's what I do have.

There is something odd about the Lab shot. Something oddly cool. I like it. Both black and white shots look great as well. That dog looks like trouble.

I like this lens a lot. Sharp enough even wide open. And it performs very well on the K200D.

f3.5 @1600 ISO on a K200D:



f1.4 @1600 ISO on a K200D:

This is one of the most cost-effective low-light and shallow depth-of-field lenses available. It is reasonably sharp and has a pleasant bokeh.

A very practical 'tight portrait' lens on APS-C dSLRs:

Great lens, had to get used to in the beginning and I hardly use it at f/1.4. Gotta love the bokeh it's giving.


f/1.8

As far as I know there is not. However, the lens does appear in this thread https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/lens-clubs/39866-f-club.html occasionally.
