    24mm f2.0 (Pentax K)

    I'm selling my recently purchased 24mm f2.0 (Pentax K) because I want to get the Oly 17mm. PM with offers.

    Just to clarify, this is not the new AF version. This is an MF version.

    I've never heard of a Pentax K 24mm f/2 lens other than the FA*24/2 AL [IF]. Are you sure it isn't an f/2.8?

    To the best of my knowledge, Pentax made a K24/3.5, A24/2.8, K24/2.8 and the aforementioned FA*24/2 AL[IF] and that's it.

    I had the A24/2.8 once upon a time: It was a fine lens.

    Godfrey, where can I find out exactly what it is? I have a pentax k mount adapter and it attaches to it. On the lens it says 24mm F/2. There's a place that says Kiro Kinon Precision but this doesn't sound like the brand to me. I can also tell you that it's small. Does it ring the bell to you?

    The brand name is Kiron. It has become a cult name with a following on its own.

    Ah, a Kiron 24/2 in Pentax K mount:


    If you do a search for "Kiron 24mm f2", you'll find a number of pages where it's mentioned. Seems to be a pretty good performer. I'm pretty sure it was also sold with the Vivitar label as well, and was available in several different mounts.
