Pentax FA 31mm F1.8 Limited Review Posted

By bdery in Review Announcements on Dec 6, 2017

The three FA Limited lenses from Pentax have a reputation bordering on cult status. With good reason: these small primes, superbly assembled and delivering excellent optical performance, are a rarity in the modern market.

With the release of the K-1 full frame camera, it is time to revisit our old reviews of these legendary lenses and see how they perform with a high-resolution full-frame sensor.

Today we begin this series with our review of the FA 31mm F1.8. Widest among the FA Limiteds, sporting an all-metal construction, minimalist design and fast aperture in a compact frame, the FA 31mm constantly ends up on the shortlist of the best lenses for the K-mount.

The FA Limited lenses were introduced at the beginning of the millennium, more than 15 years ago. Do they stand the test of time? Is their reputation truly deserved? Read our review to find out!

Lomography Daguerrotype Art 64mm f/2.9 Review

A powerful, unique creative lens

By PF Staff in Review Announcements on Oct 11, 2017

Thanks to tremendous community support, Lomography produced the Daguerrotype Achromat 64mm f/2.9 Art—its latest crowdfunded lens— not only for Canon and Nikon, but also in the Pentax K-mount. 

Lomography's Daguerrotype is a 2016 replica of an historic optical design that's well over 100 years old.  As such, this lens is the polar opposite of what many would expect in modern lenses. It sactifices corner-to-corner sharpness and distortion-free lines for superb creative control through dreamy rendering and unbounded aperture shapes.  Want star- or heart-shaped bokeh?  This lens can deliver!

While it's not for everyone, a lens such as this can deliver effects not possible through post-processing, and can ultimately greatly enrich your skills as a photographer.  Is this unique lens right for you?  Real our in-depth review to find out!
