This is one of those rare lenses that proves to be relatively cheap, but also very very good. I have the Falcon version but it comes in many different brand names including Samyang and Vivitar.
First thing to note is that on a Pentax mount it works in aperture priority (Av) mode, so you can set the aperture with the camera dial (you can on my K5 anyway). This is handy as the aperture dial itself is tricky to get to as its very small and recessed. The focus method is manual on these, but it is very smooth and not at all lose, so you are confident the barrel stays where it was put. Additionally I get focus confirmation in the viewfinder with this lens which is useful (the little red dot confirming the subject is in focus).
The picture quality is simply stunning, and the bokeh is to die for - many call this lens the bokeh monster. Simply go and flickr to see what I mean. It does take a little getting used to, as at 1.4 the depth of field is tiny, but once you do it's a joy. All of my best portraits have been taken with this lens. It also gives amazing quality feel to video, as the same narrow depth of field is transferred to the video format. I found I could change the aperture whilst the video was shooting too.
Simply amazing value for money, you would spend 3 times for a pentax version, which is marginally better, but no where near 3 x times better. Buy one, you will not regret it!
-lack of distortion
-lack of chromatic aberration
-fun to use due to MF only :)
Considering these, this lens is unbeatable and highly recommended.
If you can manual focus your lens, this is a no brainer. Just get it. Bang for buck there's not much better. You won't regret it. It's the chipped version, so will meter with the body of most Nikon dslr's. There is also a focus assist green light, with rangefinder option on newer dslr's. Focussing at f1.4 With the narrow depth of field can be tricky but rewarding!
If you can't manual focus, think twice. Then learn how! Or look at the AF compatible lenses.
Build quality is great, although a nikon lens cap would be better! Lovely focussing ring, also comes with plastic hood and cheap carrying case.
Only negatives: lens cap a bit flimsy; No AF (but hence the price!)
