Re: what about that DA* 55mm? (pros, cons, and opinions sought)

This is the lens I miss the most after switching to Olympus/Nikon (never owned any of the FA limiteds though).  If you can nail focus the results are awesome - sharpness, color, and OOF redering are all incredible IMO.

I found the AF paired with my K5 was a dog though, and I really struggled to nail shots with my kids to the point where I hardly used it not wanting to deal with the frustration and missed shots.  Combine the AF with the K5 flash performance if you really want to see how far you can be pushed before throwing your camera out a window  Might be a lot better on the K3 though AF-wise?
