Pentax SMC-DA* 50-135mm f/2.8 ED [IF] SDM - Review / Test Report

22 April 2008
  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA* 50-135mm f/2.8 ED [IF] SDM is a high quality medium tele zoom lens but just like its Tokina cousin it is not without flaws. The resolution figures are generally very good to excellent except a drop in border quality at wide-open aperture towards the long end of the zoom range. Based on some real world shots it seem as if it is getting somewhat softer at very close focus distances but then it's not a dedicated macro lens anyway.

Pentax SMC-DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED (IF) SDM

2 November 2007
  • Summary: As one of the first in Pentax’s new lens line-up, this optic is impressive. OK, it’s not a cheap item, and with no need for in-lens stabilisation you might wonder at the price, but you do get what you pay for and this lens is both well built and specked and produces excellent results. I just hope the others in the proposed line-up are as good.
  • Pros: Good build and feel with dust and moisture sealing, Excellent optical performance, Fast and quiet autofocus
  • Cons: Slight distortion at each end of the zoom range., Expensive, although worth the money.

Długoogniskowe zoomy Pentaksa - część 3, Pentax SMC-DA* 50-135 mm F2.8 ED [IF] SDM oraz podsumowanie

3 November 2008
  • Summary: Ocena sumaryczna to średnia ważona z wagami o wartości 0,3 dla rozdzielczości i po 0,1 dla pozostałych parametrów. Ocena za samą jakość optyczną (podana w nawiasie) nie uwzględnia Konstrukcji, Obsługi i Ceny. Wagi zachowują względem siebie takie same proporcje jak przy ocenie sumarycznej. Cieszy poziom obu tańszych zoomów, z których w konkurencjach jakości optycznej każdy tylko raz spadł poniżej czwórkowego poziomu, ale tylko trochę poniżej.
