Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Review

Review Navigation:


The SMC Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Limited is a fixed focal length lens, part of the pancake group. Like other Limited lenses, it features an all-metal body, tight manufacturing tolerances and high optical qualities, in a small and light package. Most of the assembly is done manually. It is generally available for around $650 USD at B&H and Adorama, and 650$ CND from major Canadian retailers.

The field of view of the lens, in 35mm equivalent, is that of a 32mm lens, near the classical 35mm focal length often associated with street photography. It can thus be regarded as an evolution of the FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited.
