Pentax DA 35 mm Macro

Swissidoodle, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this lens to have a light weight set-up with Macro capability when hiking. Macro shots are just great but one has to have a steady hand. Lens can also be utilized for Landscape pictures which are also good in quality.

Factory Lens cap does not fit with UV filter

L. Clifton, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: There are plenty of other lens quality reviews. They are all correct. This(along with the other Pentax Limited lenses) is an excellent quality lens. I just wanted to share that with the B+W XS Pro UV filter, which is relatively low-profile to begin with, the factory-supplied push-on lens cap will not stay on. A old Pentax factory 49mm clip-on M-lens cap will fit.

Best pictures I have taken

J. Lall, Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: Very, very sharp. Used with a K5IIs ie. without the AA filter. I can't compare it to anything I have done before because it is easily superior. I have used film and digital before, but this pentax kit is the best I have used. Also bought the 15mm limited lens. Sharp Macro images completely fill my screen with stunning vibrancy - this could be a subjective preference - razor sharp vs neutral, softy-but-clear sharp, like what other camera manufacturers seem to 'tune' their...

  • Summary: Love the pictures taken with this tiny dynamo. Very sharp and the bokeh is decent. Best of all it doesn't add much size or weight to the camera

One of my most used lenses

Matt Hollingsworth, Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: I've gone sort of nuts buying Pentax lenses for my k5 and kx. I have the 10-17 Fisheye, 15mm Limited, 21mm Limited, 35 mm Macro Limited, 40 mm Limited, 70 mm Limited, 200mm DA*, 50mm Takumar m42 and just bought the 50mm f1.2 SMCA. I take a lot of events/street, flowers and nature shots. The 35mm has become one of my most used lenses, although I have become quite fond of the old 50mm Takumar too.

my absolute favorite lens!

Jackie like the chan, Amazon
9 November 2011
  • Summary: This has quickly become my favorite lens. It's great for macro and everyday shooting and tends to be the lens I leave on my camera as it is the most versatile. I also love how non-invasive the lens size is. The only down I can think of is the macro, it works amazingly but its focal length isn't great for something like an ant antenna.... If you're looking for that, go for one with a longer focal length.

Excellent lens for it's intended purpose.

Richard K. Kishore, Amazon
7 November 2011
  • Summary: Good bokeh. Good accurate colors. Excellent sharpness for close-ups. Not sharp for other photography that's longer than a macro range. I bought this to use as an all-purpose lens. For the price I had expected it to be good for non-macro images. It's an excellent lens for close-up portraits and macros. But it wasn't good for other photography such as landscape and photography with a bit of distance with them, such as group portraits.
