Should that read Pentax-DFA 35mm F2? The FF wide-angle that was on the roadmap? if so thats a surprise.

Pentax not for shooting kids

Yes, I tried this lens with my 4-year old twins athletics. Definitely not recommended. However, i mistakenly used the DA*55 and it was OK, the DFA*50 would have no problems I would imagine.

I use my K1 90% of the time since 2016 shooting my kids, sports and all sorts, using the DFA 28-105. My only complaint is the small buffer not the AFC.

Funny, I always thought Panasonic is a natural partner/owner for Pentax, especially if Panasonic is serious about FF and MF. It doesn't make business sense to have all their eggs in one M43 basket. Their SL mount partnership with Leica is not comparable as its not targeted for the mainstream FF market. I do hope you are right.

Very nice shot with no people in it. Very sharp for a vintage lens.

Outstanding f1.4 images guys, keep 'em coming. Very very sharp. Whats the flare like shooting into the sun, and what about the sunstars?

DFA*50 vs DA*55 (found it on internet - not my test)
Posted By Kiwipixter

To my eyes the pictures showed the DFA is sharper, rounder bokeh balls and generally better bokeh. Vignetting is more noticeable on the DA*55 but thats understandable since its a APS-C lens. I have this lens on my K1 and generally shoot at F2 or smaller aperture for better sharpness and DOF. My only main complaint is the slow AF.

This shows Ricoh should hurry up and release the DFA85 for portrait shooters. Spectacular.

Comparing the FA 50/1.4 and D FA* 50/1.4

Thanks for the effort. the new DFA is definitely sharper and has smoother bokeh, also more corrected but the FA is no slouch in this test. Is there some slight vignetting @f1.4 from both lenses?

Marketing is not the end all and be all of a successful product or company. Just because you have created a new shiny thing, it doesn't mean you need to spend $$$ to tell as many people as you can about it. There are great examples of successful products and companies that spend very little on marketing.

Not only its a good performer optically, good focal range, WR, low cost, but also there aren't many other options of modern glass for FF at this price point. This is my main lens, along with DA*55 prime for travelling.

RICOH ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF HD PENTAX-D FA★50mm F1.4 SDM AW STAR-SERIES LENS

I meant that a lot of companies are not very truthful when it comes to their press releases, this is a general statement and not specific to Ricoh. I can't help but having a small, not very big, negative interpretation because the DFA*50 has been delayed before, along with the DA*11-18, and other products.

Thank you. Found a lucky spot overlooking the farm not far off the main highway where these cliffs can be seen. I have passed this area many times but took this opportunity with the good light.

I'd recommend the DFA 28-105mm, its an excellent performer, light and has WR. Use your 12-24, which is usable from 20mm from PF member's reports, for wider.

Awesome picture. May i ask which ND10 filter you used on the DFA28-105? I am researching for a decent kit of filters at the moment. Thanks.

Yes, post some pics.

If you like the M100 I'd recommend the M85 F2. The M50 F1.4 is also very good with creamy bokeh on FF, and can be found cheaply.
