An undoubtedly well-made Pentax prime, but does the image quality live up to the price-tag? Read the WDC Pentax SMC DA* 55mm f/1.4 SDM review to find out.
Pentax SMC DA* 55mm f/1.4 SDM Review
It seems like a shame that Pentax's 55mm fast prime does not have full-frame coverage, but given that there is currently no full-frame Pentax body (other than older film cameras) this may not be such an important gripe. In isolation this would be a good lens once it has been stopped-down slightly, but amid a field of fast primes its slight weaknesses limit its overall score.
