  • Excerpt: Durable and well designed, Pentax’s DA Limited lenses have long been among our favorites. And this light, compact, aluminum-clad prime ($540, street)—equivalent to 52.5mm on Pentax DSLRs— lives up to the line. Offering greater-than-lifesize magnification and focusing to 5.5 inches, it’s perfect for small subjects that you can reach to adjust from the camera position.

Pentax SMC DA 35mm f/2.8 Limited macro - Review / Test Report

  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC DA 35mm f/2.8 Limited macro is a undoubtedly a high quality lens but it does not excel. The center performance is great straight from the max. aperture whereas the corner performance is slightly lower than expected for a "Limited" lens (still on a very good level in absolute terms). The lens produces only a very slight barrel distortion and quite moderate vignetting but lateral CAs are a bit on the high side for a newly designed fix-focal length lens.
