Sharp in decent light

  • Summary: The lens is really sharp in the right lighting, which is most situations, but when you take it into really dim areas like under a forest canopy forget the sharpness. It is still amazingly sharp compared to lenses like the pentax 18-135mm wr.

Not bad but with issues

Doc, B&H Photo
10 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Got this lens for my K100D to use in place of Sigma 17-50/2.8 EX for light traveling, hiking, and ski trips. I do not mind plastic mount and overall design of the lens. On the other hand it has strong chromatic aberrations and a serious backfocus in comparison to Sigma that required significant...
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Takes standard 49 filters
  • Cons: Back focussing, Chroma aberrations, No Increase In Performance

It's not cheap enough

  • Excerpt: I just purchased a K-5. My main purpose for buying it was for low-light portraits and candids, and for my kids' indoor school stage shots. I don't like to use a flash if I can help it. The 35mm lens was going to be for indoor group shots and walk-about.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Distorted, Loud

  • Summary: I bought this for portraits, because I wanted a little more width in tight spots than my 50mm gives. This lens cost more than all 8 of my 50mm primes put together, but it can't match any of them for IQ.My example also suffers considerable back-focus, which is fine if you have a camera that will...

  • Excerpt: Un bon objectif dans l'absolu mais j'ai regretté une ouverture maximum limitée (2 aurait été mieux) et une construction très plastique qui rend l'utilisation moins agréable.

Léger, prix moyen: honnête

  • Summary: Ce 35mm, donnant un champ équivalent à un 50mm en 24X36, est construit léger (baïonnette en plastique) est idéal en passe-partout. Pas de distorsion, peu d'AC même à pleine ouverture,bon compagnon de reportage: l'AF est réactif(1/4 de tour de course totale) et peu bruyant.

  • Excerpt: Очень хотелось недорогой, резкий фикс от пентакс, посмотрел обзор на http://www.photozone.de/pentax/598-pentax_35_24?start=1 обратите внимание на его MTF (разрешение) похоже он по этому параметру обошел все лимы, и некоторые звездочки ! Так же почитал отзывы здесь.
  • Pros: чуть светлее SMC Pentax DA 18-55мм f/3.5-5.6
  • Cons: не зум как SMC Pentax DA 18-55мм f/3.5-5.6 , полностью пластиковый,, нет бленды...

  • Summary: Etant accroc à la qualité du 50mm (http://www.amazon.fr/Pentax-22177-Objectif-DA50-Monture/dp/B00861DI4U/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1400629466&sr=1-1&keywords=pentax+50mm) mais ayant besoin d'un plus grand angle, je me suis naturellement tourné vers ce 35mm.Malheureusement, si d'aspect ils...
