Re: Pentax DA Primes?

Reading the OP's original post he was looking for very fast glass primes. So the lens I bought not long ago the DA * 55 1.4 SDM is a good example of a prime that would fit the bill. I enjoy using it nice ergonomics on the KP well balanced. The SDM on my example works great and is silent on the the KP and focuses fast and accurately.

I think the newly updated DFA 35mm F2 would be another good choice. Image quality forom this lens was always very very good. It's got upgraded coatings which really really is something that has a strong influence on resistance to flare and improved micro contrast and color rendition not weather sealed though.

DFA 100 2.8 macro is excellent on the KP or any other APSC body as a mid tele and it focus accurately and fast imo.
