Lens Review Date: October 10, 2014 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: None indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Small size, IQ possible, price/performance ratio ...
Cons: None really ...


This lens is as good as the M 40/2.8 for a fraction of the average price of the Pentax.

Good IQ and decent bokeh possible and I sold my M 40 and kept this lens as my "pancake". Never really warmed up to the M 40 that I had (maybe it wasn't a super copy) and have been slightly more satisfied by the Revuenon 45.

I use this lens as a light, small walk-around on the MX. A rather tiny kit overall ... and the images above in this review are of my copy.

Will try to add a few sample images later. If you come across a copy of this 45/2.8 which is inexpensive, get it. You will not be disappointed at all.

Salut, J

Lens Review Date: March 16, 2014 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $46.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: All the FUN of SMC 40mm f/2,8 for 1/3rd of a price
Cons: As for the fun/price ratio - NONE
Sharpness: 9    Aberrations: 9    Handling: 9    Value: 10   

Original Pentax SMC-M 40mm f/2,8 seems overpriced in Europe. I never decided to spend over 150$ just for the flat glass.

This one I got by accident, checked if has clean glass and if it is decent sharp wide-open on my K5 with 9,5x magnification. It is! The rest is just pure fun and joy!!!
