Stabilizing a 35mm isn't that big of an issue. It is small and compact, but not sure if its moreso than the nikon 35 or canon 50.

Damn, I thought I bought Pentax K-x, but since it has clear "SR" written white on red, I guess it is either made by Canon, or more likely, it is Chinese counterfeit.
Oopps! My bad. <shame>

Good score, even when put up against a faster lens of a different caliber:

On the DxOMark score the Nikkor 35mm achieves 19 points versus 15 points for the Pentax lens; a gap of 4 points is enough to be noticeable. The gap is easily explained by the wider aperture available on the Nikkor 35mm which will help in low light conditions.

On resolution, users will have a choice: those who want homogeneity in the field will prefer the Pentax SMC 35mm f2.4 on the other hand those who care about resolution and detail will probably choose the more resolved lens-body combination of a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G on a D5000.
