reviewswhat are people saying

"An ultra wide prime in Pentax's limited series, the lens is especially suited to landscapes and nature photography. It is compact, you can carry it in your pocket but chances are it will spend a lot of time on your camera!"

"This lens is a super-compact, tough, Ultra Wide. It is built tough as a tank and has great sharpness with very light weight."

"Only downside: I wish it was faster. Not an issue outdoors but I think indoors in available light will be a challenge, especially with Pentax's less than stellar high ISO noise capabilities."
