DA 14mm - $300 Off
Posted By: Adam, 06-02-2015, 07:33 AM

The DA 14mm F2.8 prime is currently $300 off (for a total of $649.95) at Adorama:

Edit: the lens is now selling for $582.

Pentax SMCP-DA 14mm f/2.8 ED IF Lens f/Sigma 21510

It also includes a free 3-year warranty. This deal came out of the blue, hopefully it isn't pulled prematurely.

Seriously underrated lens whose reputation is brought down by a handful of chuckleheads in the review section who either don't understand the inherent characteristics of an ultrawide lens or how to handle one.
"3" for sharpness? "1" for handling?

"Severe field curvature?" It's a 14mm. Quelle surprise!

I LOVE this lens, and so do most people in the review section. This is a great price for an unused copy, so if you are looking for new, it's a good time to jump on it.

At 14mm will this provide better IQ than Pentax 12-14mm, the Sigma 8-16mm or either of the 10-20mm lens?

I must have missed it. The price is back up again. Wish I would have seen it sooner.

I'm still seeing the low price at Adorama. This deal wasn't live anywhere else.

Strange. I click the link at the top of this thread, it goes to Adorama, and the price is $649.95. Am I missing something obvious?

That's the discounted price. Normally the lens would be $949

Ha! I completely misread the thread. I thought it was saying the lens was $300 off from its normal price of $649.

Oops!

Not better than 8-16. Sigma 8-16 has better centre sharpness and equal corner sharpness. Sigma 10-20 has better centre sharpness but worse corner sharpness. Of course, you need to get a good copy of any of these lenses.

The aperture gives it a bokeh you don't get with the alternatives. Plus, the AF works.
