Pentax D FA* 85mm F1.4 Available for Pre-order
Latest ultra high-performance prime lens
By PF Staff in Product Updates on Jun 3, 2020
After a pre-announcement back in March and many years of teasers, the HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm F1.4 SDM AW ultra high-performance portrait lens has finally been officially announced and is available for pre-order. The lens is expected to ship in the US in early July at a launch price of approximatey $1899.
By pre-ordering you'll be able to reserve one of the first units to become available, and you'll also support the forum, which entitles you to a free one-year forum account upgrade.
Given the precedent for image quality set by the D FA* 50mm F1.4, our expectations for this new 85mm are very high. It seems that Pentax is stopping at nothing to deliver optical perfection—amid an ever more competitive camera market. We look forward to bringing you our in-depth review shortly after the lens starts shipping.
