Hi David,

I have this lens and can highly recommend it, but I did have to return my first copy for a replacement and have the second one adjusted.
(see post https://www.pentaxuser.com/forum/topic/da--55mm-f1-4-16392/p-0#comm_168591 ). If you can buy from a "real" shop I would!

I don't have any decent examples of what it can do to hand, but If I dig some out I'll post them.

Cheers
John

I have one and have to say I never use the thing. For some reason I just never use this focal length (to be honest I rarely use primes anyway apart from macro).
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr
