D FA* 50mm F1.4 Review Posted
In-depth review of one of Pentax's finest lenses
By beholder3 in Review Announcements on Oct 17, 2018
We are happy to bring you our in-depth review of the HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW!
Stakes were high for this long-awaited premium lens. As Pentax's first professional-grade prime for the full-frame format, the D FA* 50mm foreshadows what we'll be seeing in tomorrow's K-mount lineup.
After we put the D FA* 50mm through its paces, we believe that it truly shows that Pentax does not need to fear the competition when it comes to image quality, despite the fact that the company's budget is probably dwarfed by many of its competitors. We are happy to report that this lens scored the highest overall rating of any lens we've reviewed to date! Without further ado:
