Re: What are your thoughts on this lens...

Love mine, it is great for portraits and low light work. Mine focuses with confidence on the K1, but it is always good to fine adjust focus in menu so it will be dead on when using wide open.

FWIW, focus and recompose technique is almost impossible on any f1.4 lens because you are bound to move the camera enough to move the focus point because it is so thin at f1.4. You are better off backing away, focus and stay put (if you are wobbly you will lose the intended focus point) and leaving enough room to crop to suit in post.
