Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-A 20mm F2.8
what a phenomenal lens this little package is...

I remember thinking it was either this or a Voigtlander Color-Skopar 20mm f3.5 at the time that the Pentax lens popped up on eBay.... and I cannot imagine that I am missing a single thing with this lens...

there aren't any negatives to this lens, so let's hit the highlights: beautiful colors, amazing clarity, and sharp as razor - I was consistently surprised at how sharp landscapes, street scenes, etc were with the A20/2.8....

even decent bokeh wide open; stop this lens down and you'll get funky penta-bokeh chunks that can be distracting occasionally...

superior build and handling - the lens feels good in your hand as you focus; it's not a bulky lens by any means, but it is of solid heft....

ok, enough of that - let's see some shots: Main St by Pepperberry Farm, on Flickr by Pepperberry Farm, on Flickr chairs, west field by Pepperberry Farm, on Flickr

so you expect this lens to be great in the big, wide shots.... but how about up close? in the box by Pepperberry Farm, on Flickr and wire by Pepperberry Farm, on Flickr
