Very Sad indeed. But on the other hand, Pentax has lots of strong lenses in this area. The only lens im gonna miss is the 20mm as it covers film. I was always thinking about buying it... Ultron can be replaced by DA 40 (for the cost of one step lensspeed, dont know the english term, sorry), 58 can be replace with DA*55. I had the Ultron and Nokton in F-mount.

Kind of a crappy test as they let Pentax and Nikon Consumer Zooms contest with a professional canon beast. Nikon and Pentax are equally fast, but I guess the Nikkor 17-55 2.8 would be as fast as the canon and thus way faster than the pentax. I guess a canon consumer zoom (15-85) would have been equal to the SDM and the Nikkor...

DA16-50mm or DA 40?

As youre shooting Pentax, you should get a prime - this is Pentax' speciality. 40mm is also an excellent FOV on a digital Pentax.

Voigtlander Nokton 58mm F/1.4 Review!

I really dig that lens... Had it on my Fuji S5, it was together with its little Sibling Ultron a really deadly combination, albeit by now beaten by a K7 and LTDs...
Heres a pic of my beloved Girlfriend, Nokton (F-Mount) on Fuji S5 wide open. I love the colors and the way it is soft and sharp to the same time:)

greetings from konstanz/Germany (4:0, hell yeah)

hi guys,
im luca, a 20yeared wanna-be photographer from Konstanz, a german-switzerlandish city at the bodensee...
I started my photographic career with nikon, had a fuji s5 n then decided to go on a world travel. Lookin for suiting gear, i bought a pentax k7 and now own a DA12-24, FA 77LTD and (thanks to a very nice gentile Pentaxian who offered me) a M50 1.4 and M50/4 macro. got a MZ5 too and i just have to say: Pentax give me a feeling that Nikon cant give me:)

I love the feeling of value that every piece of pentaxequipment gives me, i love them old lenses and i love them limiteds!

i joined the forum today because i very much appreciate the information, lens reviews and last but not least the pictures in here. I hope I can become a member of your community and give some advice to others too...

I apologise for my bad english ( it is due to a very good bottle of spanish red wine) and my total lack of orthography:D

to all of you, a rather nice night,

Da 12-24 Flare problem? Advice ned

1. Post ever :o

My DA 12-24 never showed anything like it, but my nikon 12-24 did- due to a bad UV-Filter.... Maybe thats the solution to your prob too?

I cant think of any way the lens could produce that kinda flare on its own but a defect or a bad filter. Ever happened without it?

greetings from the bodensee (germany/switzerland)
