Quite good basic portrait lenses for "low price in Pentax world"

+ Very sharp from f4 to f22 and nice bokeh with f1.8

+ 52mm diameter is good for common filtres

+ Small dimensions and lightweight

- Plastic mount could have bad impression to many users, but seems solid and depends on individual manipulating behaviour

- A bit loud focusing

- Get original hood in my country is almost impossible or for too much money


Pentax K-30 freezed with them on manual (M) option, have to restart camera to default settings, but it could be K-30 problem not the lenses.
