lens collection compairson

I got a few new lenses the other day so I figured it was time for another lens compairison. I dont get to use them all nearly enough. I have my favorites but I always wonder if I am missing the beauty of the lenses I dont use as often. So here it goes..

I set up all the lenses at the same position on the table unless otherwise noted. I did back up with a few after taking a pic with it on the home position. I shot all of these as wide open as the lens would allow. I metered with a gray card for the most part.

pentax 18-55 1:3.5-5.6 kit lens



sigma 28mm 1:2.8



same lens (sigma 28) brought closer to props



Pentax 35-70 1:2.8 (focal lengh at 55mm)



Sears Auto multicoated 80-200 1:4.0 (focal length at 80)




Sears Auto multicoated 60-300 1: 4.0-5.6 (focal length set at 60)



Sears Auto 135 2.8



same lens as above (135) backed up some



Sears Auto 55 1:1.8



Rikenon 55 1:1.4



and last but not least, my new toy

SMC Pentax F 50mm 1:1.7





I am loving the autofocus feature of the 50 with my 21 mo old daughter. she is so hard to catch with manual focus... she moves too fast... and my kit lens was dissapointing to have to use all the time






hope you enjoy
