Reviews and Problems with Pentax SMC Pentax DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited
Showing 1-10 of 31
Excellent macro and general purpose lens
28 October 2015
Summary: I love this lens for its extremely usable 35mm length and its macro capabilities. It is not at its sharpest at f2.8 though. Focusing is not as quiet as the newer 20-40mm limited but not too bad either.
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...
Summary: The purchasing process was flawless as expected. Delivery was on-time. The lens has performed beyond my expectations. Now to save up for a 77 mm f/1.8 Limited. Thanks, Amazon and Pentax, for another great purchasing experience.
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.
Summary: Very nice lens for walk around snapshots and macro's. Very versatile and light weight. Excellent, all metal housing, and a nice dampening feel when focusing manually. Capable very sharp photo's/macros.
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.
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.
