Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-DA 645 25mm F4 AL [IF] SDM AW
I was lucky enough to be able to buy this lens recently and haven't had the opportunity to use it extensively yet, but what I have seen so far of the results are spectacular. It produces the sharpest, clearest image straight out of the camera, that I have ever seen. It is bulky, a bit heavy and rather expensive, but then, what would you expect from a lens of this calibre, so I can't say any of these things are negatives. Anyway, I'll let an image prove the point for me. I have shown the full frame, then 100% enlargements of the areas shown with a red rectangle in the full frame, in the top right corner, centre and centre left. All the small crops are original, unsharpened, straight out of the Raw file. I sharpened the full frame image a little, to give a better idea of its normal appearance, as of course, I had to downsize it radically to fit this space and it gained some softness in the process.
