Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 XS Lens for $194.95
Got one for myself from BH. Somehow I think it is reasonably priced now ...
Cant wait to take it out and get clicking
That is a good price. I have the DA 40 2.8 that never ceases to amaze me. I do think price, or owning a K-01 are the only reasons to purchase the XS version over the DA version, but I did mount the XS on a K-30 when I was at B&H and it's incredibly thin, and MF seems pretty smooth. Both lenses have really nice 9-blade diaphragms which gives pretty nice looking bokeh. The all-metal barrel of the DA version is awesome, but it's slightly larger and over 2 times the price of the XS so I wouldn't worry about it.
Hope you make many great images with your new lens.
