This lens screams at me to buy it but my wallet says no!

Is it true that this lens produces image quality similar to * lens?

I bet the lack of the A means the aperture is full manual and the meter won't work.

All the Pentax versions have an A setting.

I thought I had found a deal on this lens in 2012, paid $250 from Amazon.
Like Adam said, it has the A setting.
It's big, it's heavy, but it performs!

I couldn't resist. I was thinking about this lens anyway, because of the reviews. Plus I love manual lenses anyway.

Thanks @Adam -- buy button pushed. The info on the "A" button was critical for me, so thanks for that
