    This lens is another one of my Pentax favorites. It is certainly usable wide-open, but with my copy there is often some CA until stopped down to f5.6 for so. Nevertheless, this lens is an excellent all-round performer.

    I always try to leave a bit of room for this lens in my bag… which is usually not hard, since it is a nice compact size due to the relatively slow max aperture.
