Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-DA* 50-135mm F2.8 ED [IF] SDM
I bought it in Greek new @ less than 800$, it was a great deal !

But...before end the warranty autofous stop operation first time, it was repair in France free of charging, after 5 years broken again and spent around 300 :mad::mad::mad::mad:

Great lens for portrait, color and saturation are magic, autofocus is slow but (when is working) is very precise (so in my country is called the Sloth)
I love short tele, so in APS-C for me over 100 mm is too much for portrait, but good to get photo in sports in small field or sometime in landscape where chromatic aberration are well controlled !

For reason eplained above I prefer the FA 77/1.8 Limited to it, but the Sloth is more versatile, aboslute best in CA, wheather sealed well balance when is monted on K3 for example.

I tested with K1, but as you know is useable in FF @ 135 mm over f/8, even do in crop mode for portrait is still valid, is the right range in full frame, it's a shame we don't use it in FF mode, for those reason I decide to sell it.

Best lens for APS-C!
