Dilemma on Lenses (Please Help)-- FA 50mm f1.4 vs DA*'s 50mm focal point
Posted By cooldude14es

Views: 2,657
Hello.

DA* zoom lenses are excellent performers and as good as a zoom lens can be throughout its focal range, BUT... I dont think they are better at 50mm than FA50, firstly because 50mm is their extreme focal point and depending on your copy you may find some weakness (my DA* 50-135mm is not that perfect at 50mm).

Secondly, you should consider weight, 50-135mm is quite heavy. Apart from that, in my opinion, SDM lenses need to be redesigned in order to improve all those SDM failures that many people are experiencing.

When DA*55mm appeared there were some people reviewing it and comparing it with FA50 1.4 and difference was not really obvious, most of them shared the same opinion about both lenses being quite similar on IQ...

I hope that helps.

Wow, excellent comparison... yeah, one can see the difference between both lenses.

I can tell you I own the FA43 and I simply love it, once you get used to it you cant stop shooting with it.

I guess If I had the DA40 my feelings would be the same... I mean you wont regret with any of them.

Hi.

If I were you I would choose the Pentax FA35... great sharpness even wide open and excellent lens in every aspect (for its price), not too expensive, it could be a limited if it wasnt for its plastic construction. I regret I had to sell it a few months ago... :(

About the Sigma, it seems not as good as the Pentax.

I see, thats what I think it may happen to me too... 28-70mm it is not so great on APS-C, but if I dont try it I will never know. By the way, if you ever decide on selling it, just let me know :ugh: :lol:

Excellent images from your new lens. I would like to know what happened to your FA* 28-70mm... why it is not on your kit anymore? :) I was planning to get one but dont know if it is worth it.

Not really experienced here, but I will try to answer with my point of view. I wouldn't start selling those great lenses, I mean, I wouldn't replace any of them by the Sigma 24-70mm because the last one is not at the same level, in my opinion, so I think you would be losing some IQ, specially at 70mm. If you can afford it just get the Sigma and compare IQ, etc. for a few days before taking a decision, but I think those lenses complement each other and you may find that you dont have to sell any of them (if bills and banks are not killing you, of course) :lol:

If you search on the forum about the Sigma 24-70mm you will find that many people recommend the older 24-60mm for its better IQ, I havent try any of them but I was also thinking about getting a 24-70 by Sigma or the excellent FA*28-70mm. I have a similar feeling when shooting with my DA 16-45, I love the wide angle but sometimes I would like to have more reach, ok then, time to use the DA* 50-135 but then I miss the wide angle, and to tell you the truth I dont like changing lenses in action.

As per your second question, I dont think the sigma 24-70 is slower when focusing than the DA*16-50, in fact the DA* lenses are not top of the class on focusing speed.

Hope this helps, but you will get better answers than mine, for sure... :D

Sigma 24-70mm-any good?

I meant the non-HSM, the new one is too expensive for my pocket. You are right about the 24-60mm, it seems everybody is happier with it than with the 24-70mm, but I can not find it anywhere... I guess it should appear on ebay sooner or later, but right now there is not such lens on Pentax mount.

Thanks for your answer.

I am also considering buying the sigma 24-70mm but I would like to know how does it compare with the Pentax FA* 28-70mm. I know the Pentax is an excellent lens (maybe playing on a different league) but also a little overpriced, thats why I think the Sigma may be an excellent alternative. What do you think?

In case any of you had the chance to compare them, I would really appreciate any advice...

Thanks in advance.
