Pentax smc FA 35mm F2.0 AL for $399 in Canada
Posted By: QCdude, 02-20-2014, 06:48 PM

Pentax smc FA 35mm F2.0 AL (made in Japan) for $399 in Canada.
This lens has very favorable review at PZ.

Just received it for 430 CAD in total (399 + tx + delivery). Keeping in mind current exchange rate (USD vs CAD) it looks like a best deal for Canadians.
You can order it at McBain Camera Pentax FA 35mm F2.0 AL Lens - Canada, Edmonton, McBain Camera

It is Special Order Item.
My order took 14 days in total: placed Feb-06, received today Feb-20 .

I would rather wait for a sigma 30 1.4 art.
if it's like the current 30mm 1.4 art lenses, it'll be a crop sensor lens.

can't go wrong there for $200, but for $200 more you can have the full-frame fa35 2.0.

will pentax ever sell a full-frame sensor camera? if so, you'll want to be ready for it.

the fa35 2.0 works pretty well on my a7r, so it'll rock on a full-frame pentax.

that's interesting especially in view that a7 has about two native lenses only. But there is an option to use Sony aps-c and Minolta lenses through adaptor.
What kind of adaptor do you use for Pentax lens? I guess focus and aperture are manual only, right?

It's NEW design. I believe it has better IQ and accuracy than the old version.

Pentax 35mm Full Frame is just a piece of joke...
