The 20-40 and 100 are excellent Pentax lenses but the HD Pentax 35mm Limited is an outstanding lens. I would recommend it to anyone who can afford it {unless they want the extreme bokeh of f/1.4). It is the perfect compact and versatile "standard lens" to be on any Pentax APS-C body for most of the time, performing at a very high level from f/2.8 to f/11, and from infinity (e.g. landscapes) to close-focus (e.g. flowers).


Hm, it's getting more tempting by the day. It's surprisingly hard to find these days! Here in the Netherlands only one (online) shop has it in stock! But that's the fate of a pentaxian in 2020 I'm afraid...
