Jesus Christ!  I just checked the price for the 31mm 1.8 in Amazon and that thing alone cost $1100 dollars???  Man!  That IS expensive, this MUST be pro lenses for sure.  My plastic Nikon 35 1.8 gives me outstanding IQ for only $199.  Pentax is definitely probably not for me since i couldn't afford this prices at all, and i don't go out shooting under the rain anyway.

As I said in my earlier post in this thread, it's possible to cherry pick to show adverse examples of Pentax prices.  Comparing Pentax's most expensive with Nikkor's cheapest, instead of equals - cheap plastic Pentax v cheap plastic Nikkor - is a really juicy cherry.

Pentax sealing protects again dust and salt as well as rain.  Do you shoot only indoors?
