  • Summary: This lens is really big in size. Even though it is old and fat, it makes up in weight when compare to modern super tele lenses(whopping 44cm, mere 3.5Kg). This reflect simplicity and direct approach of Pentax(only(?) 4 lens elements).Therefore it will last forever providing high quality of image. Furthermore, this K mount allow auto-focus when used with Pentax f 1.7x AF on bright sun shiny day. After all one wouldn't drag along this lens gloomy cloudy day.

Pentax SMCP-67 55-100mm f/4.5 Lens Manual Focus

fisherkings-den, Ebay

  • Summary: This lens has three lenses covered in one. Besides the Normal lens of 105mm length (although this normal lens is much faster than the zoom), the other two are the wide angle 55mm and 75mm lenses. I have used all three single lens lengths over the years and I fine the 55-100mm zoom to be just as good optically. Plus it is just one lens so my bag is lighter. When considering that this is equal to three lenses the higher price is easier to accept too.
