They don't seem to like this lens much over at Pentax Forums, which is maybe why I got a copy for 15 quid (with a film camera attached too.) Personally I thought it performed OK.

Mm, doesn't look to be a poor lens Sas. Never added a copy to my collection as always felt 35mm was to 'narrow' for a walk about lens, so used the A/FA/FAJ 28-80 versions (or the digi eqivs - 16-45 or 50)

It's not an ideal walkabout lens Steve but for 15 quid it's a bit of fun

Just checked my lens data base and whilst I don't have the F 35-80, I have it's predecessor and its successor (i.e. the A and FA versions). So should have said "not intentionally added to my collection"... Embarassed Never used them - acquired as they were bundled with a body I was after. Have quite a few more lenses that fall into that category Smile .

I got one of these with a film camera bundle - not a bad lens, but I butchered it to make a macro which was much more fun. Very Happy

Very hot here at the moment what's it like in the UK?

Hi Sas,

Yep, all fine here, 'tisn't as hot as it was in 2003.

We've got used to opening the windows at the crack of dawn to let the cooler air in and we have wooden shutters on the windows which we close to keep the sun out - still gets warm in doors but the thick stone walls keep most of the heat outside as long as we don't let it in through the windows during the day.

It's difficult to get out and do any work in the garden though and going for a walk with the camera is out of the question at the moment - but I'm not complaining I'm sure it won't be long before the winter's here. Laughing

Glad you've found ways to cope with the heat, here it's intermittent so it's been OK to get out and about with the camera, other issues permitting.
