Reviews and Problems with Pentax smc DA Star 50-135mm F2.8 ED SDM
Showing 1-6 of 6
Picture quality comparable to prime lenses
29 August 2008
Excerpt: This zoom lens is so sharp that it easily compares with prime lenses. This lens is heavy and large (so it's hard to carry around and impossible to shoot inconspicuously) and I wish it had a little more zoom range, but I love the picture that it produces. Highly recommended.
Pros: Super sharp, high contrast picture. Quiet auto focus. Auto/Manual focus switching seamless.
Cons: Large size. Small zoom range. High out-of-pocket cost (worth it, though)
Excerpt: This is a great telephoto lens for pentax. Its sharp when used wide open and gets sharper as you stop down. I haven't been able to use SDM as I have a k100d; but I've heard that it works well and is virtually silent. Good job pentax, keep it up.
Pros: sharp @ 2.8, sturdy construction, well priced
Excerpt: I shoot a lot of pictures for a school web page of various school events. I looked at this lens for a while mainly to use for basketball games and events in low light in the auditorium. When I received a couple of checks that were unexpected I bit the bullet and bought it.
Excerpt: This is a great lens. It is super sharp throughout its zoom range. The IQ is almost good enough to replace all your primes in this range. The constant f/2.8 is great for low light situations. The SDM is really quiet. K10D firmware must be 1.2 or later for SDM use.
Pros: Fast, super sharp, maintains sharpness throughout zoom range.
Cons: None really but its large but that's to be expected
Conclusion: Commandé en catastrophe chez Pixmania avant de partir une semaine au Maroc. Réceptionné dans les 2 jours (merci Pixmania).C'est un vrai bijou! Un peut encombrant avec son pare soleil mais le résultat est là.
Pros: Ouverture, contraste, rendu des couleurs, tropicalisé
