The 2014 Pentax pancake lens SMC Pentax DA 40mm f2.8 Limited has a very similar hood and cap. It looks cool but owners generally tire of it quickly. The tiny screw in cap isn't very practical. Luckily that one is perfectly sized for the lid from a typical 35mm film container.








I had that Pentax lens back in the film days, when we had the MX and the ME bodies. It was a wonderful little lens, though our standards for sharpness, etc. were lower then, and I don't know how it would compare optically with today's lenses. But when it came to tiny lenses, it was a fine one. ..


I never had any issues with the Pentax 40 2.8. Here with Ilford Pan 50



I never had issues with it back then either. It was a favorite lens. I especially liked it on those tiny little "M" cameras — we had both the MX and the ME — two of my favorite cameras over the years. :-)

(My only point here was that I could not vouch for how it would compare today if used on a digital system, from which we often expect to be able to make larger prints that we typically would have attempted with 35mm film images back in the day. I'll be someone, somewhere has put the thing a a digital FF camera and has an answer to that.)
