Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax 135mm F2.5
Bought this lens by chance, from an "old stock" seller, so i got it "brand new" in its original box, with all the stuff inside (even the silica gel pouch and the - now useless - warranty card) ... Once unboxed, i was at first impressed by the size: bigger than my Steinheil Quinar 135/2.8, one of the biggest 135mm i own. Once on the camera, i understood why this lens is so much regarded: well balanced and really easy to focus. The sample shots confirmed the quality of this lens: even wide open, it is sharp and usable, and starting from f/4 it is razor sharp, maybe more than my Quinar (my reference 135mm). The colors are the "Pentax way", a bit warmer than the Quinar, and not too saturated as for the Zeiss lenses. And the contrast is really good. Too pity it doesn't have a "close focus" focusing distance, otherwise i could have already sold my Kiron 105 macro ...
Definitively, one of the best Pentax-K primes.
