Pentax 28mm f/2.8 AL SMC P-FA review by ccallana
Review Date: 12/28/2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $125.00| Rating: 8 

Pros: Lightweight, fairly fast, nice normal perspective
Cons: Would like an f/2 or f/1.7 to replace normal 50 from film.

This is a great little lens and has become my defacto indoor lens around the house. Its slightly wider than "normal" on a dSLR which offers a great perspective and FOV. AF is fast and accurate, MF is difficult, the ring just isn't made for it. My only complaint is that I would like it a bit faster - 2.8 is just not quite fast enough for a low light normal lens. Would like to see an f/2, 1.7 or even 1.4. I highly recommend picking one up.
