Any cheap fast AF lenses... at all?
Sep 4, 2010

I really like the KX for small size, great image quality, and high ISO capability, but unlike Sony, Canon, and Nikon, all fast AF primes for Pentax are $$$!

For example Sony has 35 & 50mm f1.8's for under $200, and old Maxxum normals are half that. Similar situation with Nikon.

With Pentax all I can find is a 35mm f2 for $500+, 50mm f1.4 for $350 or so, and hard to find used 50mm f1.7 for maybe $200 on a good day.

Am I missing something? If I compromise on a manual focus lens what are good choices?

Cheers
