Pentax SMCP 67 300mm f/4.0 ED (IF)

 

Lens optically and mechanically superb .

Lens really super-sharp at all apertures ; Very good tripod collar

A little difficult to focus precisely ; Needs a very sturdy tripod and head,to obtain the best optical results

Consumer review by:

Pentax SMCP 67 Macro 135mm f/4.0

 

Very versatile lens. One of the best for Pentax 67II.

The best for portraits - short depth of field. Very good for landscapes. With extension tubes 1:1 macro.

It's a wonderful lens. Focal lenght produces a natural perspective. One of the best for Pentax 67II.

Fast, compact, lightweight. The focusing is much easier (because of the brighter viewfinder) and the lens is extremely sharp at all apertures.

Your choice....read below www.antiquecameras.net

Sharp at all apertures. Superb lens hood. Light. Fast for a P67 lens. EASY to focus....

For me, unacceptable barrel distortion. Difficult to use for architectural shots. If linear edges dont matter - than its SUPERB. I would stick with the 75/4.5 for architecture shots.

Seems to be extremely sharp at all apertures except wide open (f/4). This is a big improvement over the non-ED(IF) lens. Blistering sharpness all the way down to minimum aperture. Integral tripod mounting collar on barrel balances a 67II body at...

Pentax SMCP 67 Macro 135mm f/4.0

 

One of the best performing P67 optics and one of my most used lenses. Very versatile and though optimized for closer duty, it's not bad for general purpose use beyond f8. Sharp, contrasty and snaps in and out of focus nicely. A little sharp for 35/over...

Quick, sharp, solid

Only goes about 1:3 but that's been enough for everything I do anyway.

Pentax SMCP 67 Macro 135mm f/4.0

 

A "must" lens from Pentax 67 lineup if best possible quality of production is desired. In my set of lenses (45 mm, 55-100mm zoom, 135 mm macro) it nicely fits the long end. Good value.

Exellent sharpness, fine manufacturing

short depth of field (even @ f/32)

Pentax SMCP 67 Macro 135mm f/4.0

 

Great and versatile allrounder that comes rather wellpriced for the quality it delivers. As with all P67-telephotolenses, use a heavy tripod for maximum results in terms of sharpness and depth of field.

Versatile lens because of use for portraits, landscapes and close-ups. Delivers fine sharpness and high contrast, especially at smaller f-stops. Light weight. Not too expensive, great deal when bought used.

None. Perhaps the fact that you need extension tubes for 1:1 macro.

Pentax SMCP 67 Macro 135mm f/4.0

 

Quite versatile, quite cheap (by 6x7 standards), and produces very good results at the apertures I use (f8-f32).

My version of this lens is the 'SMC Takumar for Pentax 6x7'. Mine is sharp and contrasty (I have never used it at apertures wider than f8) and has no visible distortion. I have used it for copying flat originals and can say it has a flat field. Useful...

Needs tubes for 'real macro. Small colour shift (on mine anyway)
