Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-A 70-210mm F4
For me, best vintage sportive lens ever. The pump mechanism make it very fast to zoom and the focus is very rapid and easy (often faster than some AF lenses). It have an incorporated lens hood, that i found long enough. The IQ is incredible for a zoom, i usually crop pictures taken with it and i obtain wonderful results. The magnification ratio for macro mode is 1:4, and you can shoot a good close up even at 210mm with fantastic bokeh. Personally i love the bokeh of this lens, i use it for photo hunt (yes, as i said the MF is very fast and easy), simil macro, portraits and others. The worst thing in analog is probably the tendency to aberrations, but in digital you can remove them in one click, so the problem is solved. Its heavy but very solid and resistant, the only negative note is the abscence of tripod socket. Under 150$ i bet you can't find a better tele lens, this is better also than the dal smc 55-300 or the F 70-210 cause is faster ( f 4 permanent) and sharper than both.
