I've just discovered the Pentax DSLRs and I like very much the idea of a proper pentaprism viewfinder and the weather/dust/freeze resistant design.

Can you tell me what is the equivalent lens of the Sony DT 35mm f/1.8 for Pentax? Is there any weather resistant design?

Thank you very much!


Sony DT 35 mm f/1.8 SAM: 170 grams

Yes, there are equivalent or better lenses for Pentax:

Pentax smc DA 35 mm f/2.4 AL: 124 grams

Pentax smc FA 35 mm f/2 AL: 195 grams

The weather resistant design makes more sense on zoom lenses, because you don't change prime lenses in heavy weather. Nevertheless, there are also some prime lenses (55mm, 100mm macro, 200mm, 300mm) from Pentax which are weather resistant.
