The one thing that intrigues me about shooting enviro people pics vs. 3d separation shallow dof shots all the time is that with family and kid pics, when you look back at photo's years later, I think I'd want to see the surroundings vs. great bokeh but then have to ask "where was this taken?" When I look back at photo's of myself and family from my childhood, the documentation aspect of the surroundings is as interesting as anything else. So maybe 28mm is good for archival purposes?

The same goes for video. I haven't shot much video the past few years, but when I go back and play some that I've shot of my daughter growing up, it's way more interesting than the still photo's at reliving the moment.

I agree 100% about the silliness of taking family outing photos with an 85mm f/1.2L lens.

However, small children may not look their best with a 28mm lens.

You should by a $100 zoom for your Pentax DSLR.
