IQ of DA 35mm f2.4 vs. IQ of 18-55mm kit lens
Jul 26, 2011

hey all,

I am interested in buying an affordable lens (around 200-250 USD) so that I can take clearer shots with my pentax kx. I have the 18-55 mm and the 55-300mm. The 55-300 is great and I am able to take a plethora of "keepers," however I am not entirely happy with my 18-55. I have done some research and I saw that the DA 35mm f/2.4 lens is a good starting prime lens for the price and for the optics. Therefore, before I go ahead and buy the lens, I want to know if I will actually get better quality photos with the DA 35mm than I have been getting with the 18-55. I'd love to hear from anyone that has or has used these lenses in the past. Your contribution to the thread would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
