Pentax FA*200/2.8 [IF]

One of my favorite lenses, from the *istD, then the K20D, and now enjoying with my K3.... and sure it will be used again in its full expression with the new FF body!

Some examples in flare control, close up, backlight and bokeh. This lens is sweet at F2.8, but it becomes "Finger licking goooood!" at F4 to F8. Screwdrive af is fast enough, probably because its an internal focus mechanism. Only warning: DO NOT USE ANY FILTER, especially a UV - Skylight or Protective filter, unless is top quality super coated on both sides FOR DIGITAL CAMERAS. Regular filters even high quality ones but single coated or one side coated, will produce ghostings from highlights. If you need a polarizer, get the best one you can afford for digital cameras.
