First, while I have never tried the non-HD version of this lens (the older version), I believe this lens is only an incremental improvement over the older version.

I bought this lens about a year ago and then returned it. I wanted a lens for taking good portraits and I was very impressed with portraits from my nifty thrifty fifty (Pentax DA 50mm, f1.8). The Pentax DA 70mm had an even better reputation for portraits and its focal length seemed ideal. However, when I got it, I noticed I had to back off more I wanted to from those I wanted to take head shots of in my apartment. Since, the nifty fifty did such a good job of taking head shots in my modest abode and since the Pentax DA 70mm is reasonably expensive, I returned it.

Forward one year. I realized I needed lens with greater than 50mm focal length when taking people pictures outside of my condo. This lens is great for taking photos of people in grocery stores, in parks, on the street and giving talks. The fine reputation this lens has for sharpness and brokeh is well deserved. Being a Pentax limited prime, it is small, light weight and well built.

If you have need for a lens like this, you will be plenty happy with this lens. Its main competitor is the Pentax FA 77mm (which I have not ever used). This lens has a legendary reputation - it is most likely a tiny bit better optically than the Pentax DA 70mm (both lenses get excellent reviews). However, the FA costs a lot more, and is a little bigger and heavier. I don't think anyone would be unhappy with either lens. I am quite happy with my Pentax 70mm. This time it is a keeper.

Don't be fooled by it's little size. This is a fantastic piece of glass; great bokeh, excellent image quality, comes with hood, front and rear cap, a nice bag to keep when not in use and a brief instruction manual. From first shot you will know that you have an awesome lens. Autofocus is very good and also manual focus is very smooth; feels very nice on both k-5 and k-01
