Amazing lens with high quality!

Jarvis Christian, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a lens whose reputation is best known in all of the pentax lens, outstanding optical technology, inside the focus is as sharp as the blade, and outside the focus is melt as cream, almost all of the customers of pentax want to have this lens, this is a full frame lens but it is a pity that the pentax camera didn't have a full frame camera.

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 build quality is beyond old-school. All metal, right down to the pull-out lens hood, yet it can be manually focused with one finger like my old all metal Nikkors.

ONE FANTASTIC PRIME!!!

SALTFLY, Adorama
28 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I met a Leica factory employee who told me this lens was the sharpest ever tested in their labs, every bit the equivalent of Leica glass.........and now I believe him. This lens is sharp throughout the range and the color rendition is superb It is simply the best of all the Pentax primes, all of which are excellent.

The Finest AF Lenses

Christian V., Adorama
13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: These are film-era lenses with screw-drive autofocus. Pretty quick but make a slight noise.The older SMC coating is also prone to fringing wide-open in high contrast situations. Luckily there's a PP adjustment in your Pentax body to help minimize.Quirks aside, they quite possibly capture the most stunning and vibrant photos on film or your DSLR sensor.Which help explain their continued production and high demand.The FA-77 is the ideal portrait lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Amazing but exclusive

alainj4989, Ebay
6 June 2013
  • Summary: Superbe objectif, très lumineux, avec une focale intéressante. Attention cependant, objectif exclusif : focale fixe, autofocus pas très rapide et assez bruyant : à éviter pour les photographes qui cherchent la polyvalence.
