  • Summary: We have a confession to make. Our reviewer is used to higher end DA and even premium DA* and Limited level glass. As such, it could be very easy to dismiss this Plastic Fantastic as sub-par from a build quality stand point.

  • Cons: plastic casing and mount,, noisy focusing mechanism,, noticeable vignetting.

Pentax SMC DA 35mm f/2.4 AL - Review / Lens Test

  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA 35mm f/2.4 AL may be a low-cost prime lens but it is actually a more than decent performer. This isn't overly surprising actually because moderately fast prime lenses tend to be a very safe bet.

  • Summary: Mamy chyba niespodziankę. Trochę tańszy Nikon Action EX, nie dość że jest lżejszy, choć równie solidnie wykonany, to wypada lepiej. Różnica nie jest może duża, ale jest. Co ciekawe, wpływ na nią miały zastosowane powłoki. Wydaje się, że w modelu droższym powinniśmy mieć lepsze warstwy antyodbiciowe.
  • Pros: dobrze korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, niewielki astygmatyzm,, prawidłowo korygowana koma,, znikome pociemnienie na brzegu pola,, przyzwoite odwzorowanie kolorów,, dobrej klasy pryzmaty.
  • Cons: powiększenie wyraźnie większe niż deklarowane,, część granic powietrze-szkło wydaje się nie pokryta,, ścięte źrenice wyjściowe,, dużo odblasków w okolicach źrenic wyjściowych,, mała i głęboko schowana śruba centralna,, ostrość obrazu na brzegu pola powinna być lepsza.
