  • Excerpt: When digital cameras with sensors smaller than full frame appeared on the market they forced some changes in the offer of lenses as well. Plenty of instruments, designed for small detectors, have been launched ever since but, what is interesting, the majority of them were mainly zooms. If any fixed focal lens was launched it usually has been a standard device or an instrument with longer focal lengths.
  • Cons: Weak image quality on the edge of the frame,, Distinct coma.

Pentax SMC-DA 15mm f/4 AL ED Limited - Review / Test Report

  • Conclusion: The SMC-DA 15mm f/4 AL ED Limited is a another desirable pancake lens by Pentax. The lens is capable of producing very sharp and contrasty images at medium aperture settings. At large apertures the border quality is somewhat softer so it may not be the first choice for available light photography (handheld) ... assuming that you can find a better one. The vignetting is hefty at f/4 so it's advisable to stop down here anyway to get rid of the problem as well.

  • Summary: Co ciekawe, jest jeszcze trzecia strona dotycząca sensowności istnienia takiego obiektywu na rynku. W samym tylko systemie Pentaksa mamy przecież obiektywy takie jak 16–50 mm f/2.8, 16–45 mm f/4.0 czy 17–70 mm f/4.0. Do tego dochodzi oferta producentów niezależnych. Obiektywów zmiennoogniskowych, których ogniskowe zaczynają się na 16–17 mm, a światło od f/2.8–4.0 jest więc do wyboru sporo. Większość z nich kosztuje taniej niż Pentax 4/15.
  • Pros: bardzo solidna i dobrze wykonana obudowa,, rewelacyjna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, umiarkowana aberracja chromatyczna,, jak na ten kąt widzenia, niewielka dystorsja,, znikomy astygmatyzm,, bardzo szybki i sprawny autofokus.
  • Cons: słaba jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, wyraźna koma.
