Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-DA* 50-135mm F2.8 ED [IF] SDM
I bought my copy knowing the SDM motor was broken.
So following a tutorial I have converted it to screwdrive mount.


I don't care much as I use to use my lenses for motorsport.


This lens is great. The image quality is fantastic and the bokeh even at F4 is delicious.
Yet, for my taste, my likes and the use I give it to its a bit too slow in the AF. I have shoot motorsports with it and can do the work, the range is fantastic in apsc (70-200mm equivalent) and its not heavy at all. But that AF is not the best. My Sigma 100-300mm f4 beats it every day, and I wonder if the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 would beat it easily every other day also.


Yet it creates delicious images when doing portraits

It does work well in low light environments

And for motorsport purposes if you are close enough to action, you get good...
