The reason beyond this update has pretty much to do with fabrication process and using same components trough various product. Pretty much the K5ii case here !



maybe because they have very few money flowing hence few people hence few new product.



Grass is always greener elsewhere, just saying :p :lol:

The 16-50 exhibit CA when doing test shots of objects, but with human it's never been an issue for me (i don't have CA on eyes, hair, of the model).

The 16-50 do shine on skin rendering, color rendering, renders very well dimensions. It's been so far a great lens to take picture of real life, sports too.

But selling something is better than not selling at all, no ?

EDIT : discontinued simply mean no in production, not no more for sale on retail. So my comment has pretty much no point.

Tell us then why film director tends to shoot as flat image as possible, then color it.

Many of us shoot very neutral images, almost lifeless, to PP it, being sharpness, color, color grading, spacial separation of objets.
And good photographer and retoucher do it in a subtle way that seems invisible.

We got that Pentax DFA don't suits you.

If the Tamron 28-75 interest you, maybe you can find one to test it be it on a Canon, Nikon, Sony body. If you have any lens shop around, they would certainly carry it. Could be informative for you.

probably has to do with the perceived value : Many thinks they can use the 50 and 85 a lot, that it's going to be bread and butter lenses. But on the other hand, they used long lenses as hobbyist tool and don't want to spend too much on it. I guess.

Says a guy who never actually used the lens, touch the lens, or anything close.



Hope this 25$ lens will provide great joy, happiness and all.

0- PF don't represent Pentax User, it represent probably the most voicy part of it, that may spend some money on new lenses (and that's not even sure).

1 - The key here is that when you get a cheap lens like the DA35/2.4 // 50/1.8 // Canikon 85/1.8, is that it helps you to decide wether or not you like the FL and you will use it.

Then if you like it, you decide to upgrade. If you don't like it, well, it costed you probably hundred bucks and it's ok.

Would you be ready to spend 1k $ to get a 85mm 1.4 if you never used one, and you think that, maybe, it can suits you ? I'm pretty sure most wouldn't.

2 - The bigger picture is to bring people into Pentax eco-system. If Pentax offers all the classical FL for en entry price, and higher end, people will more likely come into it, instead of discarding it because there no lenses like the one [insert Instagram famous user name] use.

I suspect that using such phone components would require more power from the battery (more peak power, or more intensity), and that would mean a complete redesign of the battery (like Sony did for A7R3 and A9).

In the end, it mean pretty much changing the whole body design.

Side note : i think Camera makers would'nt buy enought chips to make it interesting economicaly.

The problem is mainly the price of a lens that is expensive considering focal and aperture.

It is small, yes, but that ain't a criteria for which some would pay a premium.

The simple 85mm 1,8 from Canikon is cheap and awesome, and not that bigger than the 77.

Obviously you are thinking that the FA* and DFA* are the same lens. THEY ARE NOT.

The DFA is the newest and latest version, available new on any retailer. The FA is the 20yrs old version.

I have to say that this Eye-AF is really THE thing that makes Sony really interesting. This Eye-AF solve pretty much the main tricky part of tacking a rightly focused picture.

From the first A7 to the A9, Sony did make really fast and steady leap. Makes me wonder where there gonna be in 2 years.

Should I keep this Rokinon 85mm f1.4 / Are these fungus and micro-scratches?

the specks are probably just micro dropplet of water.

The back is clearly a lens baddly cleaned.

If you can get a real cleaning solution, and a micro fiber fabric to clean it.

If you are still concerned about the lens, send it back.
