Autofocus Issues

Xiong, B&H Photo
17 December 2012
  • Excerpt: My first shot taken with this lens was out of focus. I got home and started playing around with the autofocus and noticed that it would not lock on to a subject about 5 feet away inside my house. I switched it from AF to MF a few times and then it somehow started autofocusing again. I took it out again the next weekend and it seems to be working normally now with no issues.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Autofocus

Too slow

SFC, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a very sharp lens--sharper than the 70 2.4, and with less fringing. Bokeh was decent, but under some conditions starts to look busy. Unfortunately, the 50-135 has a fatal flaw: its AF speed. Combined with my K20d, the AF may be quiet, but compared to the competition, is several generations behind in speed.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Gute Qualität, aber unzuverlässig

  • Summary: Habe das Objektiv jetzt seit einiger Zeit und war eigentlich sehr zufrieden. Die Abbildungsqualität und die Verarbeitung des Objektives sind wirklich gut. Jedoch ist der SDM Motor zum Fokusierren sehr unzuverlässig und ungenau. Dazu kommt noch die hohe Ausfallrate des Motors. Und obwohl Pentax über ihre unzuverlässigen Motoren Bescheid weiß, werden sie bei Defekt nicht auf Kulanz getauscht. Sehr schade bei so einem Hochpreisigen Objektiv.

  • Excerpt: давно хотел приобрести этот обьектив,проштудировав много сайтов,начитавшись отличных отзывов,приобрел,сейчас жалею о потраченных деньгах,дело в том,что на коротком конце 50мм мылит ужасно,пробовал на двух камерах картина одна и таже,начиная с 70мм и до 135 нормально,у кольца фокусировки присутствует люфт,что тоже немного раздражает,может у меня такой попался экземпляр не спорю,но извените звезда да еще за такие деньги это уж слишком/покупался у официального...
  • Pros: "звезда"
