40mm Pancake
Jun 24, 2013

Hi All,

I think I'm just about to order the little pancake Pentax smc DA 40mm 2.8 Limited, as a friend for my new K5ii.  So far I only have the 18-55 kit lens.

I've searched around but haven't found very much here about it, so I'd be interested if any owners out there could offer any useful comments before I click the 'Order' button.  Will I see much general improvement over the kit lens, particularly in sharpness?  Sample pics would be most appreciated.
