Lens Test: Pentax SMCP-DA* 200mm f/2.8ED (IF) SDM AF

Pop Photo
8 April 2010
  • Excerpt: If you needed proof that Pentax has a high-performance, professional-quality DSLR in the offing, this $1,000 (street) lens is it. Based on the film-era 200mm f/2.8 FA lens, it's equipped with new internal-flare-suppressing coatings, and it has a newly designed rear element which Pentax claims projects a perfectly flat-field image.

  • Excerpt: Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at this compact super-telephoto lens with a silent focusing motor, full time manual focus override and a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, which gives an equivalent field of view of a 300mm lens on a 35mm camera.
  • Pros: Outstanding resolution, Almost zero distortion, Low CA, Fast focusing, Weather sealing, Build quality, Light weight
  • Cons: It doesn't fit other makes of camera to allow everyone to enjoy this lens.

Pentax SMC DA* 200mm f/2.8 ED(IF) SDM

  • Summary: Pentax have created a near-perfect super telephoto optic in the 200mm f/2.8. It is capable of producing images with outstanding sharpness, low levels of chromatic aberrations, and negligible distortion. All this from a compact, lightweight package that focuses quickly, has sealing against dust and moisture and only costs £720. In my mind this lens is a bargain.
  • Pros: Outstanding resolution, Almost zero distortion, Low CA, Fast focusing, Weather sealing, Build quality, Light weight
  • Cons: It doesn't fit other makes of camera to allow everyone to enjoy this lens.

Pentax SMC DA* 200mm f/2.8 ED [IF] SDM - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA* 200mm f/2.8 ED [IF] SDM is a very welcome addition to the Pentax lineup. The performance is generally on a very high level. In terms of resolution and contrast the lens is able to produce very good results straight from the max. aperture setting. The level of distortions is absolutely negligible and vignetting and lateral chromatic aberrations (CAs) are not overly field relevant. The quality of the bokeh (out-of-focus blur) is very decent.

  • Summary: Sokszor hallhatunk olyan kritikát a Pentax-szal szemben, hogy szűkös az objektív választéka. Esélyes, hogy valóban szűkebb, mint a két legnagyobb gyártóé, de miért is lenne bővebb, ha az elérhetők is kiváló minőségűek és jól eltalált gyújtótávolsággal, fényerővel és árral rendelkeznek. A 200 mm-es fix tele ilyen. Nem túl drága, remek fényerő jellemzi, s a gyújtótávolsága is megfelelő többféle felhasználáshoz is.
