Excellent review of Pentax DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro Ltd in (Johnston & Weese)

A must-read by any means, if you are interested in Pentax gear. They tested the 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited in a K20D, and if I had the bucks, you can be sure these lenses would be already ordered.

I guess this is what happens if you spend more money in designing lenses than in marketing

they didn't absolutely love it, but I like mine very much - it was my 'prime' reason for getting a K10

yes, it's good that Pentax has such a "limited" selection of lenses.
