Con: Manual focus. How is manual focus a "con"? Maybe it's because I've been using a camera for such a long time that auto-focus has always seemed to be the toy of the dilettante. Focusing this lens is simple. Look through the view finder. Twist the focus ring until the image passes sharp and starts to go slightly soft and then back up until it's sharp again. Press the shutter button.
If you have a K1, use live view. When you see maximum crusty edges in the view (if you have used live view, you'll know what I am talking about) then you're in focus. Press the shutter button.
Con: 14mm used as a telephoto? Are you kidding me? If you buy a 14mm lens as a telephoto, you're an idiot.

Talk about manufacturing "Cons"!
The reviewer should be free to state: "There are no CONs with this lens"

Hmmm... How can this lens be "Louder and slower" when its a MF lens?
I find MF lenses to be faster and ultra-quiet than any AF system... and at 14mm does AF even matter much?
Really, the depth of field you get with this lens, even at f/2.8, is quite large. You will only have to make little adjustments when focusing to shift between subjects... Not quite like focusing a fisheye, but close to it.
