REVIEW: SMC Pentax-DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited Lens

  • Excerpt: Features The Pentax lens repertoire seems to have its fair share of prime or single focal length lenses, bucking the trend towards the ubiquitous zoom. Many of these Pentax primes are described as Limited, not in the sense of them having a short production life, but rather in the limited number that can be made of these hand assembled, superior optics.

Pentax SMC DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited - Review / Lab Test

photozone.de
26 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited is an great lens with no significant technical weakness. A highlight is certainly the resolution characteristic which is generally excellent regardless of the (tested) aperture setting. It's also very even across the image frame. The vignetting is only slightly visible at f/2.4 but no real issue anymore at smaller aperture settings. Neither distortions nor CAs are field-relevant either.

Pentax SMC-DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited is an great lens with no really significant technical weakness. The resolution characteristic is generally excellent regardless of the (tested) aperture setting and the resolution distribution is much more harmonic compared to the SMC FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited although it sacrifices a tiny bit of peak performance. There's a bit of vignetting at f/2.4 but it's not extreme and negligible when stopping down a little.
