Comments about Pentax Pentax 55mm DA f/1.4 Standard Lens:

This lens gives amazing depth of field. It pulls the colors out in an image better and brighter that what your eye can see. Professional portrait quality images every time. This lens is so fast I can capture my daughter dancing Irish Dance indoors in mid air with no flash and I get pristine images. I have this paired with a Pentax K-7 wich is also amazing.
