...for couples, head shots, candids, macros. This lens is ultra sharp, the chroma is much better controlled then the older 645FA series lenses. I had been using the 150mm f/2.8 which is a great lens but with no IS and chroma just bad enough to make correction difficult I'm relieved to have this...
It so happened that when I got my first Pentax 67 many years ago it was equipped with this lens. It is a great all-around standard lens for everyday use, truly versatile, compact and light weight with the great image quality. You may read about my own experincу:
Lightweight, compact, sharp, close focusing
I recently purchased this lens along with a Pentax 645z outfit and couldn't be more impressed. I have compared the results of this and several other Pentax lenses with comparable ones captured with my PhaseOne IQ180 outfit, and in every case the Pentax images are sharper, more detailed and with...
The more I use this lens, the more I like it. While it took a small amount of learning curve to figure out the Pentax 645Z, the use of this lens surely helped. It is tack sharp and compares favorable with my Canon 85mm 1.2 as well as my Canon 100mm Macro lens.
I have had the lens for approximately one week, and so far I have been quite pleased with it's performance especially at f2.8. The software upgrade to the camera was strait forward with no problems encountered. The anti shack system works well but can not be used in combination with HDR.
I can't speak for its macro abilities (as I have not tested them), but this 90mm is in the same category with the other absolutely recommended lens for the 645 system, the 25mm f/4 AL (IF) SDM AW. Both lenses are pricey, but well worth the investment, as they won't disappoint.
I own both, the 67 SMC 105mm 2.4 and 67 SMC 90mm 2.8. To me the 90mm is more convenient then the 105mm because it's a bit wider. The aperature difference between 2.4 and 2.8 is not to much IMHO. If I would have to choose I would go for the 90mm over the 105mm.
Tack sharp and compact
I have the 67 90/2.8 1989 version which was the last 90mm lens that was made for the Pentax 6x7 system. It has the same optics as its predecessor, the 6x7 90/2.8 (1980).
Light weight, great FL for everyday use. Also good for macro work.
Could have a better minimum focusing distance.
Though bringing the details home cleanly and clearly, this lens does not appear as sharp as the standout 45 and 55mm f4 lenses, but what it loses in sharpness it gains very well in low-light capability, and this can be critical with the somewhat dull 6x7 / 67 viewfinders.
