This lens has probably the most mixed feelings of all Pentax lens.
Most users give great reviews, but for example photozone gives it only a disappointing 2.5/5 stars mostly for poor results wide open.

Maybe, you could post some pictures done with this lens from f/1.9 to f/2.8?

Thanks.

Hi Apapukas, I have sent you a PM.

I would disagree that this lens has the most mixed feelings of all Pentax lenses. At least judging by the reviews on this Forums there is a pretty strong consensus that this is one of the best Pentax lenses. There are differing opinion about its bokeh. But of course opinions are subjective.

I would suggest going through user reviews following this link: SMC Pentax-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited Reviews - FA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

On another note: if we follow Photozone we would not be buying many Pentax lenses, would we? There are measurements, and then there is real life experience....

Regs, Giorgio

Please edit your post to reflect the true lens name (FA, not DA).
