Pentax smc DA 50 mm f/1.8

1. Introduction

Although the Pentax company doesn’t offer a full frame digital reflex camera they evidently have a soft spot for classic fixed-focus lenses with a focal length near 50 mm, which can be considered as standard instruments only on full frame; on an APS-C/DX sensor they can qualify as rather a casual portrait lens. Currently Pentax has as many as four such lenses on its offer: the oldest, full frame Pentax smc FA 50 mm f/1.4, an equally old Pentax smc D FA 50 mm f/2.8 Macro, the Pentax smc DA* 55 mm f/1.4 SDM, launched in 2008, and the newest one, the Pentax smc DA 50 mm f/1.8.

We tested 1.4/50 and 1.4/55 devices long ago. Now the time has come for the youngest model so the Pentax smc DA 50 mm f/1.8. Enjoy your reading!

We lent that lens for testing purposes from the Fotozakupy.pl shop – thank you!
