Great wide-angle lens from Pentax
Old Pentaxian, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
Excerpt: I have been a Pentax equipment user exclusively for almost 50 years now. I always enjoyed their cameras' small size and their wonderful assortment of prime lenses. I currently own two DSLR's: an old IstDs which my wife uses with a DA 40mm f2.8 Ltd and a K5 which I use with the ubiquitous DA 18-55 mm...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I recently purchased this wide angle lens for my Pentax K10D to use for interior photo's of cabinets and other millwork that we manufacture at where I work. Being a rookie at doing this I was extremely pleased with the photos that I took, made me look like a pro.
Excerpt: Excellent prime lens for landscape and travel. Picture quality is outstanding. Solid built and light. I have the silver one and it is beautiful. Some users complain about the screw in lens cap.. I bought a SENSEI clip-on lens cap[$] to solve the problem.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I'm comparing this jewel to my old 24 mm F2.8 Pentax (full frame lens) from the mid 80's. That was a great lens, albeit faster, but manual. Sadly I left that with an African friend along with an ME Super.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I bought the 20-40mm and 15mm to replace the 16 - 45mm lenses. Although the 16-45 is a good lens, I was keen on extra sharpness and around quality. The 15mm is similar in sharpness in the centre but has far better sharpness in the corners and better contrast.
Summary: One of my favorite all time lenses! It's gets a little soft at the edges but sharpness closer to the center is wonderful. Colors are just super vibrant. Construction is top notch, just wish it was WR and an f2.8 (-1 star for that) since the most use you will get out of this is outdoors.
Excerpt: Have been using this lens for just over a month now, it's daily driver a replacement for my DA16-50mm, and I have yet to be disappointed. It's just a joy to use. And the image quality is just excellent, tack sharp.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
