As a fellow 35/2 owner, I highly recommend this lens. It's as perfect as a 35mm can be within it's specs. Fully (almost optimally) usable wide-open. Best of luck on the sale!

I didn't know I had any superpowers, but thank you for the kind words on my Flickr page.

I will certainly miss this lens, but I have a Nikon D3x now (It's a long story) and my K7 kit doesn't get enough use to justify keeping it. I'm hoping to get the Zeiss 50mm Makro-Planar with the proceeds from this lens.

I miss the Pentax colors already, I may get a K01 +40mm as a more portable alternative for days that I don't want to carry the D3x (beast).

Thanks, I'm hoping to sell this one soon as all my other gear has sold. My K7 is gone so I can't use it!

A quick bump for a great seller. I just bout a K-7 from him, and he couldn't have been more courteous or professional. If I had the money, he wouldn't be selling this lens anymore!
