it's just a better lens for portraits

  • Summary: This lens has delivered everything I had anticipated!!! My CaNikon friends asked me why I bought this lens when I already had a 100mm Macro WR lens (they also smirked about the odd 77mm focal length). Well, it's just a better lens for portraits.

It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

  • Summary: It is well worth keeping a Pentax camera around, even if you're invested in another system, to use these 'Limited' lenses. This one renders much the same indescribably magical, '3D' feel (how do they do this?!

Great for portraits

  • Summary: This is a sharp lens and just like week Pentax Forum named Best of All Lenses. How well does it live to its expectations? Really well, unless you own a K-3 that it, in which case it's good, just not THAT good. On the K-5 family, it's a little soft wide open, like most such lenses.

Worth Buying A Pentax To Use This Lens

davelawler, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: It's worth keeping a Pentax body, even if you're invested in another system, just to use this lens. I love this lens with Portra and the Pentax MX as well as with the Pentax DSLR. It is satisfyingly sharp wide open with beautiful color and contrast. Out of focus areas are buttery soft.

The MUST HAVE portrait lens for the Pentax system ... or for people with Pentax adapters.

Jerry Jackson Jr., Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: There are few lenses that can render images so well that people buy cameras just to use that lens or buy adapters to use that lens on other cameras ... the Pentax FA 77mm f/1.8 is one of those lenses.

Can't say enough about this lens.

J. Bennett "Earlyadopt", Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: I've been shooting Pentax over 5 years and struggled with the purchase of this fine lens. (Mainly because of the high cost of admission!). Really tough, parting with just under a grand for a 47mm f1.8 lens. Bought the FA 43 a few months ago. Phenomenal lens.
