Latest Review Posted HD Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Limited
Pentax HD PENTAX-DA 21mm f/3.2 AL (black)
A high quality Limited build, lightweight pancake, moderate wide angle, has useful 35mm equivalent of 31.5mm.
Excellent sharpness when stopped down @ f/5.6 - f/8.
Manual focus has smooth, accurate, extremely short rotation. The fast auto focus, is with slight audible noise, but has desirable quick shift manual.
Uses 49mm filters without hood, but the efficient & ingenious Voightlander style lens shade which accomodates 43mm filters keeps the profile small.
Appears to have very good resistance to flare. The lens has some illumination fall off, but not noticeable at about f/5.6. This may be partially a result of fairly high barrel distortion.
Dedicated to close focus magnification the lens is only adequate for some subjects.
Bokeh obtained at wide aperature has attractive soft focus quality.
The design of the 8 elements contribute seamlessly to stopped down scene overall sharpness to infinity as desired.
Color accuracy is superb. 3d rendering is charming & character is unique.
