  • Excerpt: This is the sharpest lens in my entire lens collection; even sharper than my Tamron 70-200 @ 70mm f/2.8. I have FA50/1.4, M50/1.7, which does not come close to it @ f/2.4, so I can confidently use it wide open. 70mm limited has creamy bokeh and great colour rendering.
  • Pros: Sharp, Small, Metal, Fast, Colour rendering, Hood.
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: I have used the lens for 2 weeks. Some portrait work but mostly landscape. I found the lens to focus rapidly with little or no hunting. Photos were exceptionally sharp with great resolution. Contrast is great. Size and weight make it easy to handle.
  • Pros: Sharp Images,Fast Focus,Great Contrast, Light Wt
  • Cons: None noted yet

  • Summary: I use this lens for nature and outdoor photography, as well as for some portraits. And I love it! It is so well-built and its sharpness is wonderfull. Also bokeh is excellent, maybe better at 2.8 than the fastest 2.4, but this is matter of personal taste.
  • Pros: - built quality is superb, - excellent sharpness, - lovely Bokeh, - size and weight, - front screw size (saves a lot money on filters), - price
  • Cons: For weaknesses I really have to think for a while:, - maybe a bit slower and noisier AF compared to SDM lenses, - people tend to laugh when they see it mounted on the camera....:o) (and so they do with the 40mm pancake lens)

A remarkable lens

  • Summary: To many, this review will be a case of preaching to the converted. Pentax's series of "Limited" have acquired legendary status amongst Pentax users, and there will be many who know this model's reputation very well.

Gorgeous

  • Summary: Top-notch portrait lens, and also great for street photography, because you have a 105mm-equivalent tele lens, and yet the lens is tiny. Perfect optically and mechanically.

Was für ein kleines tolles Objektiv

espresso macchiato, Amazon
3 November 2012
  • Summary: Ich war sehr überrascht, als ich das Objektiv auspackte: Das soll ein 70 mm Objektiv für die Pentax K5 sein? Sieht aus wie ein Objektiv für Micro Four Thirds, wie Nikon 1 oder Olympus OM-D. So klein und zierlich.

Pentax DA SMC 70mm f2.4 Limited

Mikael J., foto.no
18 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Det finnes desverre ikke høyere karakterer her
  • Pros: Vanvittig skarpt allerede fra f2,4 Det har en egen chrisphet jeg aldri har opplevd i noe anna objektiv. Det oser kvalitet lang vei. Innebygd motlysblender og kompakt. Som de andre objektivene i DA Limitedserien, er byggekvaliteten gedigen. Solblender er i metall og dras ut. Dette er gatefotografe...
  • Cons: INGEN

Ein Objektiv das Objektiv sieht!

Niki Wuff "Nw", Amazon

  • Summary: Habe eine Pentax K-01 und das Pentax SMC-Da 70mm 2,4LE , ja es ist kein ZOOOM nur ein 70mm Objektiv aber scharf, wie es ein Zooom nie sein wird. Ein guter kauf meine ich, klein leicht und rundum noch aus Metall mit Streulichtvorsatz.
