  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Traditionally, the standard lens for 35mm film cameras was the 50mm. With the advent of the APS-C sensor, the same field of view is now obtained with a lens of 35mm or thereabouts, and here we have such a lens from Pentax.
  • Pros: Very high quality optics, Compact, Highly cost effective, Helps disciplined approach, Well made
  • Cons: No weather sealing, No Quick Shift, No lens hood provided

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Pentax billiga 35 mm klarar sig riktigt bra, och speciellt om du kan hålla dig till området F5.6–F11 får du en bildkvalitet som matchar objektivet, som kostar tre gånger så mycket.

  • Summary: Podsumowując, użytkownicy cyfrowych lustrzanek Pentaksa, chcący kupić tani standard, są niejako skazani na model 2.4/35. A gdy nie ma konkurencji, cena wcale nie musi być okazyjna.
  • Pros: mała i zwarta konstrukcja,, świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, przyzwoita jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, niewielka aberracja chromatyczna,, mała dystorsja,, bardzo mała koma,, znikomy astygmatyzm,, dobra transmisja i praca pod ostre światło,, błyskawiczny autofokus.
  • Cons: obudowa i bagnet wykonane z tworzyw sztucznych,, głośna praca mechanizmu ustawiającego ostrość,, zauważalne winietowanie.
