Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-M 40mm F2.8
The pancake. One really canít make manual focus lens with aperture ring smaller. Thereís barely room for focus ring. Still itís nice to handle. Especially if you add collapsible hood on it. Put you pay the price from small size with long minimum focal distance. Itís clearly longer than in 35ís or 50ís. I must say that this isnít chart monster. Again both 35ís and 50ís are sharper. But this lens has great rendering. It makes wonderful photos both on APSC and FF bodies. So good that some of my all time favorites are taken with this.

This makes great travel companion, if you want to go light. Iíve done some trips with only this lens on K5 and didnít miss anything. Itís so small that I had to try to put my K1ii with it in pocket. Didnít quite fit, but I had to try.

Reasonably priced fun lens that doesnít take much space in camera bag, thought maybe most fun when you leave that bag home.
