Pentax SMC FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited - Lab Test / Review
24 August 2010
Conclusion: The Pentax SMC FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited produced mixed feelings during the tests (performed at 16mp). This is in so far surprising that the lens performed rather nicely in our initial test based on the Pentax K10D (at 10mp). The center performance is impressive at max. aperture but the outer image region is plain soft here. The quality increases at f/2.8 but the peak performance is not reached prior of f/4 which is rather "late" for such a prime lens.
