About & Index of Third Party lenses in this section

If you are new to the lens sample photo archive, please read the general introduction about this section.

Please note that I have decided to split the index into pentax and non pentax as the post became too big once I started including links to lens reviews and lens clubs. It would have needed splitting at some point, this just made it happen sooner.

A request for all people adding sample images
Please check the listing here before posting a new thread for a lens that already exists.
Note the threads ARE NOT intended to be camera specific, they are lens specific. However I have added separate links to threads specifically set for full frame and also lens clubs where relevant. If you want to start a new, full frame specific thread, please put Full Frame in the thread title.
If you want to post and you get a warning that the thread is over a year old, Please post in that thread (check the box stating you understand the thread is over a year old) and DO NOT start a new thread

Thank you

For navigating the index, please note that for some lenses, there is no thread in the archive but only either a thread for the lens club, or for full frame images only or for links to the lens review section. For these lenses, the name appears in black text, and not the red text of a url link. Clicking on black text will have no action, where as clicking on the URL links will take you to the correct thread
