  • Conclusion: The Pentax smc DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited is a unique lens in the current market, a small, lightweight wideangle prime for APS-C cameras. And let's make it clear from the outset that Pentax should be applauded for producing such a lens, to provide a genuine alternative to the wideangle zooms which are the only option in other manufacturers' lineups.
  • Pros: Compact and lightweight, High quality aluminium construction, Quick shift manual focus system, Built-in sliding hood (but see below), Good flare resistance, Almost no distortion, Small 49mm thread, doesn't require slim filters
  • Cons: Rather soft at F4 - F5.6, Hood design causes problems with filter use (particularly square systems)
