Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-FA 645 45-85mm F4.5
This is the best zoom i've ever worked with on Pentax medium format. I've got two. Bought the first one 8 years ago second hand for 800EUR for the 645N and the 645D. Used it very much, so when i changed the 645D for the 645Z 5 years ago i bought a second one. Why ? because i use it so much that any mechanical or optical fault or dust in the first copy would've bothered me. Needed a replacement in case the first one failed me. But guess what , the +10 year old copy never let me down, nor the 5 year old one. No fault, no dust, they both work like charm. On the 645N you get a great 28-50mm equivalent. On the 645D and 645Z you get a 35-70mm equivalent, so a great 50mm classic with very useful extra throws in angle vision on both sides. The made in japan copy and assembled in vietnam copy are equal in every aspect. Along with the 25mm wide angle and the 90mm macro i consider this lens the best investment for Pentax MF . You can easily forget using the 45mm, 55mm and 75mm primes once you start shooting with the FA 45-85mm.
