Pentax 15mm f/4 ED AL Limited SMC DA review by jamesk8752

  • Summary: This is a little gem of a lens, very pocketable with very good IQ and low distortion compared to other lenses in this FL range. While a bit soft wide open, it sharpens up nicely at f5.6 and above.
  • Pros: Very good IQ for a SWA, esp. at f5.6 and higher; low distortion; small and light; great build quality
  • Cons: A bit soft at f4

Pentax 15mm f/4 ED AL Limited SMC DA review by amnesix

  • Summary: This a *compact* lens, hence the mitigated sharpness results until you close to f8. Apart from that, I can't find anything bad to say about this lens. It shares with its "Limited" colleagues a really good colours rendition, and its build qualities. And, from f8, the image quality.
  • Pros: size, weight, quality of build, sharpness from f8, flare resistance
  • Cons: mediocre sharpness until f8

Pentax 15mm f/4 ED AL Limited SMC DA review by ktwse

  • Summary: Looking at the price spent, you realize that people in Europe get shafted when buying lenses... That said, this is a very nice lens that only really suffers from two issues: first of all, it's max aperture is fairly mediocre. That can be expected, however, as otherwise it wouldn't be as compact.
  • Pros: Build quality, size, very very good when stopped down
  • Cons: Good but not excellent sharpness, max aperture (but that's a result of the design)

User Review

Jymi, objektiivi
23 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Objektiivi ei olevalovoimaisin ja lisäksi täydellä aukolla äärinurkkien piirto pehmenee hieman. Annan kuitenkin 10:n, koska objektiivi loistaa siinä missä sen on tarkoitettukin. Eli koko, keveys ja rakenteen laadukkuus on taattua Limited tasoa. Kuvanlaatu on myös kokonaisuudesaan erinomainen.
  • Pros: +Erittäin pienikokoinen, +sisäänrakennettu vastavalosuoja, +täysmetallinen viimeistelty rakenne, +uskomattoman hyvä vastavalonsieto, Kuvanlaatukin on oikein hyvä varsinkin kontrastin ja värien osalta.

Perfekt

  • Summary: Skarpt i centrum redan vidöppet, men kanterna på vidvinklar vinner i nästan alla fall på att blända ner, så även här. Mycket karakteristiska flares vid nattfotografering. Mycket välbyggt som alla Limited-objektiven!
