REVIEW: Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 XS Pancake

 

This compact pancake lens, released with the Pentax K-01 camera has a bright maximum aperture of f/2.8 and is currently the thinnest interchangeable fixed focal length lens compatible with an APS-C format camera, being under a centimetre thick.

Excellent sharpness from maximum aperture; Thin and lightweight; Good build quality; Vignetting is well-controlled

High CA levels towards edges of the frame when stopped down; Loss of contrast and flare when shooting into the light; Rubber lens cap falls off easily

Obvious benefits of a pancake lens like this are the compact size and lightweight, but this lens delivers excellent sharpness too.
