Pentax SMC FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited

  • Conclusion: The Pentax SMC FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited lens may be the perfect standard-angle lens on film, but the lack of a Pentax full-frame digital body narrows its field of view.
  • Pros: Extremely sharp. Compact. Fast aperture. Excellent build quality.
  • Cons: Expensive. Awkward focal length on APS-C cameras. Slower, screw-drive focus system.

Pentax SMC-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited - Review / Test Report

  • Conclusion: Similar to its cousins (DA 40mm f/2.8, FA 50mm f/1.4) the Pentax SMC-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited is a very good performer with a few weaknesses. At f/1.9 the contrast and resolution is somewhat soft but beyond the quality is superb and probably as good as it gets on the K10D.
