Pentax's latest prime lens offering, the DA L 35mm F2.4 AL, is a lightweight budget lens designed with the amateur photographer just beginning to explore the use of prime lenses in DSLR photography.

Announced September 8, 2010, this little workhorse of a lens is, with the exception of the glass optics and metal contacts, constructed entirely of plastic, mount included.  For good or for bad, this makes it an extremely lightweight and low-cost lens.  Shown below are images of the DA 35mm's plastic mount compared to the metal mount of the DA 18-55mm AL II.
