Pros: Tiny, very clear, excellent colors, full time mf, materials, resistance to flare, a nice blur

Cons: If it had been tropicalized ... inconvenient screw cap, slightly noisy and not lightning

Opinion: I've got it a few days ago and I can already begin to praise it ... it's my first fixed AF lens, and I adored it from the first day I mounted it ... baby you do not see it, light that you do not feel, very clear even at the edges, excellent focal length, I do a lot of things (just a little 'longish, sometimes, in the landscapes, at least on APSC). It is well contrasted and has properly saturated colors ... I think it will keep me company for a very long time, even if the AF is slightly noisy and not very fast ... but it's a full time mf! RnrnAs the rest , the screw cap and the metal lens hood are beautiful, but as soon as I find a 49mm non-screw cap, I remove both of them, so much so that it does not seem to suffer from reflections. rnrnPer now, I think it was a good purchase from 9.5 to 10. It is not 'tropicalized, but you can not' have everything ... rnrnUpdate ... is a lens for APSC, but mounted on the K1, without crop, perfectly covers the entire frame with a minimum of vignetting agorecoverable, even at full aperture.

Pros: Size, weight, sharpness, contrast, construction quality

Cons: non-tropical conditions.

Opinion: What a great lens. A reduced size allows to shoot with the camera almost without even being noticed. Turns the camera, such as size, to something a little bigger than a compact whatsoever. Combined, then, to my K50 ..... all becomes really lightweight and easy to handle. Is accurate in collecting details, in terms of risolvenza, contrast, color, that is disarming. It is really pleasant to the touch, due to the metal construction which makes it solid and resistant, even if the tropicalisation would have made it more useful (but with the sweep so reduced content ..... and one can understand). Simple, sfruttabilissimo in landscaping, street, reportage, still life, photojournalism .... an all do that can safely replace both the 35 that the 50mm without absolutely miss neither. I've permanently mounted on the machine, always ready to use. I do not think I'll get tired soon ....: D

Pros: Very small size, risolvenza at the top, excellent build quality, speed and accuracy of autofocus

Cons: f/2.8 and not more open

Opinion: The DA40 f/2.8 Limited is a lens that continues the long tradition of pancake 40mm Pentax. And 'A resolution optics with high and good control of chromatic aberrations and flare. It has a fuzzy very good, even if it is "only" f/2.8, which is clearly not up to the more famous and expensive FA43 limited. The build quality is exceptional, with all metal construction makes it a real pleasure, both to touch and to the eye. The lens hood is built into the cap screw. It 'so small it fits in your pocket. The autofocus is traditional (a "beater"), but given the very small excursion is fast, quiet and precise.
