Hi All

I am thiking about a new lense For My DS. I am looking for a Lense that is Close to a 50mm on a film Camera. I have Narrowed it down to 2 lenses.
The Sigma 28mm 1.8 and the Pentax 35mm F2.0.
Anyone Used either of these or Any other Suggestions

TIA

BK

I have the Sigma AF 24mm f1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro Lens. That gives an equivalent of a 36mm in the 35mm style.

I have found this lens to be very sharp, I am very happy with it.

If it's the FA 35 / f2 (auto focus), this lens is rated as exceptional by most reviewers. The K 35 / f2 is also great, but manual focus and exposure only. Of course there's the 31 / f1.8 Limited @ $600 used and $900 new (rough estimates <G>). Can't find much on the Sigma.

Thanks Guys

Still tossing the idea around in my head. I all ready have the FA-50mm 1.4. But i find that I am wanting Something Closer to the 50 mm that i am used too With My ME. Not Sure what I will Do yet, But thanks for the input

The 35mm f2 is probably your best bet since it is of excellent quality and probably cheaper than the 31mm f1.8 Limited. 35mm gives you a 52.5mm equivalent, the 31mm is 46.5mm so both are valid replacements for a film camera's 50mm standard.
