Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-DA* 50-135mm F2.8 ED [IF] SDM
This is by far the best lens Iíve ever owned. Itís fast and sharp, with a beautiful bokeh. I bought this together with my K20D, second-hand for $700! At the time I didnít really know what * series lenses were, but found out pretty quickly! From flowers to wildlife to landscapes, this is a versatile lens. It has macro like sharpness at the closest focal distance, and yet will give good IQ at longer ranges too. Because of this you can crop fairly tightly and still get a good photo. I've used it with the 1.4x rear converter, but it seems to soften the image slightly? The fact that the barrel doesnít extend when zooming or focusing makes it impervious to dust, drizzle and snow. Although itís not what youíd call light, I prefer the solid, well-constructed feel of the lens, and the weight makes it well balanced to boot. In conclusion, all I can say is that if I was forced to sell off all my gear, this would be the last to go. Roadside Flowers Goodyear Eagles Spotted Eagle Owl
