different DA lenses?
Posted By Lanfriendly

i'm kind of confused buy all of the abbreviations on every different lens... what's the difference between a DA or a DA* or DA F, PDA etc...
and then there's ED IF AL etc, is they're anything to look out for?

they're all designed for digital cameras, is there really a big difference between them? is there any i shouldn't bother with? there's so many different similar lenses i don't know what to think of what

another question is SMC/SDM, this is the auto focus engine correct? it doesn't effect the actual quality of the lens does it?

i'm planning on buying a 16/17 - 45/50/70 lens and want to make sure i get the best value

the only lens i really use right now is my zenitar 16mm 2.8 fisheye and i to get something new,

i think i'm going to buy a 50mm f/1.4, so i need something to replace my wide angle range. in the past the only wide lens i've had is the sigma 10 - 20, i really liked it but the distortion was a little much for me... and also it really only took great pictures at 10mm.

my 16mm doesn't take very clear pictures so i really want to make sure i buy something to get the full potential out of my k20d. i gotta get those crystal clear pictures again

i don't want to go in debt too bad but a couple lenses i've been looking at are the Pentax DA 14 f/2.8, the Pentax DA 12 - 24

i'm also going to be traveling a lot in the new year so i wouldn't mind having something more like the 16 - 45/50... and keep that on my camera 90% of the time

any advice or comments?

the 28-75 2.8 does sound very tempting, or even the 17 - 50mm 2.8... guess i'll start saving my pennies

i definitely got heavy perspective distortion but that was a really cool effect. distance distortion with close subjects is really what i didn't like, sorry i'm not on my computer so i can post pics right now but i will later

i didn't really use my sigma on anything other that 10mm, pictures turned out too soft and seemed like it the distortion looked better at 10 anyways. is there any super wide angle primes?

i'm pretty sure the SR on the k20d makes noise, but it's hard to hear, i can only hear it when i'm indoors and theres no other noises

turn on SR and take a 1 second exposure with SR on and off and you should be able to tell a big difference

to make a long story short a few weeks ago my camera bag was stolen while passing through regina with my sigma 10 - 20 and 50mm (as well as fgz 360) even worse a memory card full of pictures! but anyways, now all i have is my 16mm zenitar fisheye.

i need to buy some new lenses asap!

i really loved my sigma 10 - 20 but mostly just for landscapes and street photography, i found that as soon as a living subject got in the frame i didn't like the distortion. how is the pentax 12 - 24 compared to this lens? similar distortion? other wide angle options? i still have my 16mm fisheye as well

50mm is always great too but i want to try something different also, maybe something bigger? i was going to buy a tamron di 28 - 200 for $180 but am now having second thoughts, i definitely need a decent sized zoom though, i'd like to do some macro shots

i also really want to get into two things, infrared photography and astrophotography, any

thanks everyone! any advice is much appreciated
