I've had this lens for well over a year now and must say that it was on my K-x before and now my K-30 the most. It is a fantastic walk around lens since it is so small and you are correct, though 2.4 can be a tad soft if you pixel peep, by 2.8 you are much sharper. This was my first prime and I am thinking that my next purchase might be the 50mm 1.8 big brother to this one.

Yep, that was the first thing I tested out on it, the aperture performance. 2.8 is nearly identical to F8 in sharpness, and 2.4 is usable in a pinch. Very small, very light, very affordable. My next I think will be a bit longer than 50mm, perhaps a 70 prime, I have also been wanting the tamron 70-200. This will basically be my indoor portrait lens, and a 70-200'ish will be my outdoor do all lens. So many nice options though, it's a good time to be into cameras.
