Whether on FF or APS-C, I love this lens. I'm not the only one

The infrared certainly helps with that

Good luck with it, the 35mm plastic fantastic also fits the camera great and doesn't break the bank!

Yeah, I've got that lens and it does work well.

I've also been using the 18-135mm 3.5/5.6, and that works very well. Doesn't seem to have the infrared hot spot that has been reported elsewhere at least on the K-01. The Pentax F 35-70mm 3.5 also produces good results.

As noted elsewhere, I just wish I could figure out a way to get a gel filter inside it behind the lens.
