Wondering if anyone has any experience with the lens. I used to have it in the K mount and I liked it. I know it's a little awkward given that focal length does not match any framelines... Still, curious to know if anyone used it.

I have a copy of this lens and I like it very much. When I got my copy, it came with an optical finder. The rangefinder focusing of my copy is bit off so I have been using it mostly on mirrorless bodies. It's also worth noting that the MFD is 0.9m. I have close focus adapters for both Leica L-mount and Nikon Z-mount so it can focus to about 0.5m. Since you have a K-mount lens and you know how good it is.

Thanks! I do miss it... I had the 43 and the 77mm lenses which I sold as part of my move to Fuji X and M systems... Now I miss them. Although I realize if I wanted to get the 43mm, it would be cheaper to get the K-mount version along with a used K3 than buying the ltm version. Wonder why they are so expensive

Personally, I think that both 43mm and 77mm Limited together with 31mm are worth getting back to Pentax K1/K3 system again for pure image quality considerations.
