Pentax 15mm Ltd Quality Lens.
I have had this lens about two years, when fitted to my K5 body the balance is perfect.
The build quality for this pricey lens is superb and I just love using it.
The optical quality is on a par with my 50-135mm lens, and the focal length does not cause too much distortion. Shots taken into the light are usually flare free and light sources are recorded as very sharp starbursts if the lens is stopped down.
I love travel, street type photography, but I have used its close focussing ability very effectivelly with floral shots.
For travel I use my 70mm Ltd and the 15mm Ltd most of all, as the zooms I find too heavy unless in a studio. This combination is so compact I can go unnoticed, it never ceases to amaze me when I see Canon users with long white tele lens walking the street, very posy I think.
Finally, for me the limited primes are a pleasure to use.
