Incredible candid and street photography lens
2

This is my first limited lens after using several K/M/A-Pentax, Takumar, Zeiss lenses on K5. It gives me a shock from very first pictures. The very vivid color, 3D impression and very good blured background (bokeh). The focused object is just like from another picture put in the middle of picture. The exoteric focal length is also interesting, it is slightly narrower than normal eye view. It forces me to focus on what my eyes watches. It is very nice to use for candid or street photography. It also very resistant to flare, that helps when you must make a picture in hurry.

Flare resistance with a good bokeh

The built is excellent, light metal that is very nice to grab. It give me an envie to have others limited lens (now 15mm/F4 and 77mm/F1.8), but still this 43mm/F1.9 is my main lens that stays in my camera.
