The bokeh (out of focus softness) looks very smooth - which is a great thing!

Details look good - it looks like a real good lens compared to the plastic mount kit lens which came with my K-r.

Lovely pictures, looks like it'll be an excellent lens for people and casual shooting. I can imagine how hard it might be for you to leave it in Gander when you go back to Tuk. The things we do for our spouses!

Well, I do get the FA 35mm f2.0 AL to take with me, they are practically identical in image quality and I have read that the DA is actually a little faster than f2.4 and the FA is perhaps a little slower than f2 so the difference is minimal. Bet a K5 with the DA L 35 would make a lightweight street combo

I have never been a fan of plastic mounts and this is only the second lens we have owned that had plastic (the other was the FA 100-300mm f4.7-5.8, a rather large lens for a plastic mount). This lens is small and light enough that the plastic mount should not be a problem, and it does appear to be very well made.

Annette absolutely loves the lens, I think the DA 18-55mm will only come out occasionally for wide shots but the DA 50-200mm is likely to be her number two lens now since she does enjoy candid shots with the face as the focus and that range is just right. The DA L 35mm will be mounted the rest of the time, in her Crumpler bag with the AF 540 FGZ flash ready to go.

Great shots from that 35 Ira. It is a nice FL on the digital camera. Wishing you much pleasure with the new lens.
