LBA - smc Pentax-FA 35mm f/2 AL

Well, it took nine weeks to get here (special order from Japan by Pentax Canada, who don't even list the lens anywhere anymore), but it finally arrived last monday !

It is light yet seems solidly built, and I really like how it looks with its hood mounted on my K10D. The focusing ring is unusual but feels nice. One strange thing is that I can turn it even if the camera in set to AF-S (even though it is clearly connected to the AF motor).

I haven't had time to play with it all that much yet, but here are the obligatory first few pics, all are 10MP *** JPEG straight from the camera (resized to 800x536 but otherwise unmodified):


f/2.0, 1/20s, ISO 800


f/2.0, 1/2500s, ISO 100


f/3.5, 1/1600s, ISO 100

Congrads on this new lens! I had little doubt that it will become your most preferred prime very soon.

Fast AF and sharp similar to Fa 31 ltd. The bokeh is equally beautiful as well. Hard to tell between the two.

I wonder how much you have gotten this for?

419 CDN$ + taxes. Seems to be about the going price up here when you can find one.
