  • Pros: These are the BEST AUTOFOCUS lens money can buy. The build quality is amazing, the optical quality is second to only maybe leica. These are the ne plus ultra in lenses.
  • Cons: Expensive, but well worth the money!

  • Summary: This lens is amazing. Super sharp eve wide open, with excellent creamy bokeh and beautiful vivid contrasty colours. I think the best way to describe the image quality is that it is creamy smooth with a 3D look.
  • Pros: Super Sharp even wide open., Creamy bokeh, Vivid contrasty colours, 3D appearance of the image., It's like a "standard" lens on the *ist D/DS., Superb build quality.
  • Cons: I little large for this type of lens., Price

  • Summary: Optically, this lens is close to perfect. Sharpness is unbelievably good wide open. Flare control is excellent. Almost round shape aperture is a plus.
  • Pros: Metal construction., Excellent sharpness., Excellent flare control., Almost round shape aperture.
  • Cons: Fixed hood., Bulky and expensive as a wide angle prime. The FA35/2 could be a better buy.

  • Summary: I pointed the lens directly to the sun at 4pm, no flare was found on slide. Excellent flare control. Almost no distortion which may be due to 31mm, not too wide. Vignetting is very very little at wide open. Sharpness is also very good. Very well built lens body.
  • Pros: Excellent in all aspects!!!!
  • Cons: Price, paid HK$5900. But I want to keep a whole set of limited lenses, OK then.

  • Excerpt: Приобретя Pentax 31 1.8 Limited,поставил для себя точку в поисках лучшего в линейке Pentax.Теперь имея 31,43,77, могу сказать ,что выше этого может быть только Leica.)имхо.Но это в первую очередь другой финансовый уровень и потом другой творческий уровень.И до того и до другого надо еще расти.А пока...
  • Pros: Лим,вещь в себе.Один из бриллиантов в системе пентакс.Уникальный рисунок,пластичен,очень резкий,трудно выразить словами свойства,им надо снимать.
  • Cons: Достаточно дороговат,бденда маленькая.
