Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC HSM (Art) Review
sigma_30mm_pentax_art.jpg
I am not a fan of shooting with widest aperture possible on any lenses. I just dont like those pictures and i have a headache of it. : ) I tend to stop down one or two steps all the time, and then i feel the mixture of sharp objects and blurry objects are becoming in sweet balance. Therefore i dont ...

Quality lens, big bang for the buck and performs just as the well as the actual Canon FD version.

Tamron 28-300mm F3.5-6.3 XR Di AF Review
tamron-af-28-300mm-f-3-5-6-3-di-xr-ld-aspherical-if-macro.jpg
I have the Promaster Spectrum 7 branded version, but identified by Lightroom or Flickr as "TAMRON 28-300mm F3.5-6.3 Ultra zoom XR" from camera metadata. The lens has the same physical appearance as the Tamron except the branded writing on the barrel. I got it new from a local camera store around ...

Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 2.8/135 Review

Great lens for landscape photography shots. A good buy.

Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 3,3-4,0/28-85 Review
3-IMGP6898.JPG
Good lens for daily use, with a high sharpness either at 28mm or 85mm. Maybe the colors are a bit cold and not very saturated. For an old zoom lens, this is a must buy in my opinion.

IMGP0623.jpg

Ricoh P Auto Rikenon (M42) 28mm F2.8 Review
DSC02736ab.jpg
There are several versions of this lens, this is the 8 blade versioon with the A/M ring. I have had this lens for a while but there was a bit fungus inside. I just got round to cleaning it and today I tested it. The weather wasn't ideal but it did OK. It is robustly built, mine is buttery smooth to ...

Tokina 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 Aspherical AF Review
Tokina_28-105mm_800px_1.jpeg
Like the best of the Tokinas, this lens is sharpish wide open and only gets sharper. Colours are exceptional. Its light and compact on a K-1. It has a little distortion, but average for a 28-105mm. The distortion correction profile is very close to the Pentax D FA 28-105mm and in most circumstanc...

Sears Auto 50mm F2.0 Review
IMG0066_v1.jpg
If you've never tried a fast 50, these lenses are an excellent place to start: Good optics and even better value since they're often available on eb*y for under $30. These Auto Sears 50s were kit lenses for a series of K mount Sears SLRs sold from the late 1970s through the late 1980s (the autofocu...

KMZ Industar-61 50mm F2.8 L/Z Review
industar61.jpg
The lens is good alternative for other 50mm prime lenses. It's very sharp and have interesting star bokeh effect. I use it for portraits and macro photography with intermediate rings.
