Lens Review Date: July 23, 2011 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $70.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Pentax-ish result, great contrast, color & bokeh
Cons: Looking for a tiny 28mm ? This lens is not for you
Sharpness: 9    Aberrations: 8    Bokeh: 10    Handling: 9    Value: 10   

Bought several 28mm lenses from ebay on one not so sober night -this lens is one of them. This lens gives truly sobering results. This is by far is the best "off-brand" 28mm that I've ever had. I have Vivitar 28mm F/2.8 also, in terms of everything got smoked by this huge beast. Almost twice the size of the usual 28mm's, there is a lot more glass and metal to calculate here. Now, frankly I have not tested any 28mm SMC ones, but I would not be surprised if this lens will match them. A quick search on the Web explains it all: Pentax seems to be behind this so-called CPC (Combined Products Corporation) lenses

Test shots, all at the widest aperture:
