Tested: Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DA WR

 

Pentax calls this '15 optic a kit lens, even though it's not currently bundled with any DSLR body. (We bet that this fall we'll see a dual-lens package with this and the 18–55mm WR zoom, if only from mail-order dealers.) It's the first kit telezoom...

Pentax smc DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED (IF) SDM Review

 

What Digital Camera tests the Pentax smc DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED (IF) SDM lens to find out if it's as good as the price suggests.

Weather-resistant, Replicates 70-200mm focal range

Zoom ring should be wider, hefty price

Pentax £50 cashback

 

On k-m range brought between 1 February through to 15 April 2009.

Tiny and lightweight, the 10.2-megapixel Pentax K-m offers a surprising range of features for the money, perfect for new DSLR users

Pentax DA 50-200mm 4-5.6 ED

 

With Pentax now incorporating shift CCDs into its cameras, there's no need to add stabilisation to their lenses so the 50-200mm uses a standard Pentax KAF mount......

Quick focusing

Slow, noisy

Really a budget or starter lens, reasonably priced, but lacking the fast maximum aperture and expensive glass of more professional lenses

Pentax SMC-DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED (IF) SDM

 

While Pentax got left behind a little at the dawn of the digital age, their recently announced lens roadmap shows they are coming back with a vengeance. This optic is the first in a series of professionally specified lenses to hit the marketplace....

Good build and feel with dust and moisture sealing; Excellent optical performance; Fast and quiet autofocus

Expensive, although worth the money

Pentax SMC-FA 50mm f/1.4

 

It took a while but welcome to the first Pentax lens test here at Photozone.As usual we'll start with a reference lens, typically 50mm primes and thePentax SMC FA 50mm f/1.4 qualifies here. Despite being one of the mostaffordable Pentax branded lenses...

The Pentax SMC-FA 50mm f/1.4 is an oldie but a goodie. At medium apertures thelens is capable to produce stellar resolution figures. Typical for such lensesthe results are a bit soft at f/1.4 and less so at f/2 but still usable. Distortions and...

Highly Recommended

Pentax SMC-DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited

 

The test report of the Pentax SMC-DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited completes the "gang of three" -the three pancake lenses in the current Pentax lens lineup (as of the time of thisreview). Looking at its shape it is quite obvious why it is called a pancakelens -...
