A Top Performer.
Having had this lens for 2 years, I am certainly satisfied with its optical performance.
It is an ideal lens in the studio, I use it on a K5.
I feel its only drawbacks are its cost and its heavy weight. In the field I tend to take my Lumix G1 kit, although I prefer the results from my Pentax.
For portraits in natural light wide open it gives lovely results.
