    Thanks for all the replies. Since both IQ is good, then I go for the lighter one. Time to pay attention to BnS.

    not trying to start another brand war here. just trying to put some perspective. I'm just saying Pentax has some expensive SDM lenses too that arguably have an AF reliability issue.

    actually on a lighter note, if you buy an entry level C&N body with no AF motor you'll suddenly find that a lot of lenses only MF!

    I was seriously considering "upgrading" from my k-x to a k-01 for the k-5 sensor & the oh so sexy da40xs...

    Then I woke up & grabbed an almost new k-5 on BNS for a good price. I just can't give up that lightning fast PDAF (to me at least), 7fps, WR body & super swee 100% OVF!

    i guess they removed it from the kit and sell it separately.
    the lens comes with a brown box.

    gotten it at $320. i actually called slrr, alan, the JP store and non of them have the lens itself. (but this is during earlier this mth).

    really made my canon friend envy of that size! here's some street photos i took with it.
    only cropped, otherwise not edited in anyway, str out of cam.

    Thanks. I like the bokeh of this lens, it's beautiful.

    Focusing is fast, and best of all, I can throw it into a bag without worrying about added weight.
