If it's repairable, please get it repaired. We need to keep the good lenses around - if nothing else, for the sake of future Pentaxians.

What happened to you could happen to anyone.

No amount of perceived entitlement can replace actual expertise.

Hmm. Depends on the parameters. If light weight or blind allegiance to primes is the primary consideration, don't bother to consider alternatives (I understand that desire).

Otherwise, I would be surprised if anything beats the Sigma 18-35 stopped down all the way to f/2.8 - let alone at f/2.4 or f/2, or at 24mm, etc. Of course, it is one very substantial lens, and there's no getting around that. Those of us who have worked in medium format film don't quite understand the problem, though.
