A $50 Wonder - Pentax-F 35-70mm
3

Bought a good one for about $50 on Ebay. It was just for fun and I didn't expect much from it. It turned out that it's the highest performance/price lens I've ever had. Compare with the 20-40mm limited zoom I have, it's slightly less sharp but not far off. The 20-40 does have an edge on the colour and micro-contrast but it's also more than 10 times the price. The 35-70 is light (a bit plasticky also), AF fast on my K3. It's also a FF lens, wondering how it would work on the K1.

Some sample photos:

First 3 f5.6 70mm, last one f5.6 35mm.
