I have a feeling this may be the best of all the new lenses. Destined to be a classic.

Despite promising myself to resist this lens for at least a while, I am unreasonably excited by this.

its a very nice lens. With this lens and the K1 AF is very fast and excellent tracking. Got to play with the combo this morning. (both pre-production)
