For those looking for advice on portrait lenses the Pentax smc DA 50mm f1.8 is hard to beat, although as the equivalent to a 77mm lens this and the other 50-55mm lenses maybe a little short. As the equivalent to a 105mm the APS-C 70mm f/2.4 Limited performs well and doesn’t command too high a price as a premium series lens.
