The lens diagrams in the database were drawn up by Pentax at different times as the lenses came out. Whether or not the differences between the two diagrams reflect actual differences in the optics is a good question. I have both lenses but no intention of taking them apart!

Pentax 50mm F1.2 UV filter size

Do you mean the rare 50mm F1.2 lens, or are you talking F2.0?

In most cases the filter size depends on the lens type (K, M or A, F/FA, etc.)

When you have identified the type you can find the information for your particular lens in our lens database.

Good catch and sorry about that:o

The compensation depends on the length of the article: $100 if > 900 words, $25 if < 400 words, $50 otherwise.

The compensation can be adjusted upwards for articles that require an extraordinary amount of work (such as massive tests/research).

Blurriness in pictures - K1 with HD PENTAX-D FA 28-105mm
Posted By Ole

For speeds above the sync speed you will not see blur in that part of the image that is exposed first, i.e. the part exposed before the first shutter curtain hits home and shakes the camera. I try to not go lower than 1/350s with the K-1. In low light I try to stay below 1/60s.

I'm just back from a trip and got tack sharp images throughout with the 28-105 by avoiding the speeds 1/60s through 1/250s. This opposed to a trip I made last year before being aware of this issue. I had to discard 70% of my images due to shutter blur. Most of those were shot at 1/125s or 1/180s.

Pentaxian Giovanni Corona uses them. He recently published this article about his work on our home page. He mentions Kase filters about two-thirds down the page and also provides some sample images.

Lens Nomenclature on Super Takumar M42 Lenses
Posted By Ole
Replies: 5
Views: 336
There is some inconsistency in the naming, unfortunately. Some Super-Multi-Coated Takumar lenses support open aperture metering and some only support stop down metering. You can consult our M42 database for the details. Under "Mount Variant" you'll find the details about how the aperture operates.
