I'll bump this. I like mine better than my FA28-70/4. Great close-focus, closer than most at greater than 3:1.

I do think this lens is quite good based on a few portraits I did around the house but it is just not getting used much in my hands after being spoiled by AF lenses.

Weekend bump.

Posted a review here. This is a superb lens for someone who wants a bit more length and speed than the DA18-55, with close-focus thrown in for a bargain.

My wife used one of these for years with her K1000.
It's a great "walk around" lens. The close focus is quite handy.
It's an -A lens so will work great with the latest Pentax bodies.
