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.
Obvious benefits of a pancake lens like this are the compact size and lightweight, but this lens delivers excellent sharpness too. The issues with flare and high CA levels when stopped down may be off-putting to some, but if care is taken to use this lens within its limits, it can deliver excellent...
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
I'm definitely not a pro or anything but this lens gets used 80% of the time for general photography (i.e. family get to gathers, parties etc). My bro has alot higher end cannon and this setup on my camera caught his eye... very compact.
Super tiny lens; it could justifiably be mistaken for a body cap. Excellent optical quality; takes sharp, vibrant pictures. It feels solid and well made. Professional reviews say it compares well with the slightly larger and much much more expensive 40mm f/2.8 limited and is superior to the much...
I was skeptical about getting this lens but it does a great job! I would recommend it.
have only had it for a week, but so far, seems like a great lens for the price
Great pancake lens. Fast focus, very sharp. Have left it on my Pentax K5 . Did not expect it to be so useful. Light and easy for travel. May just take this and leave the heavy zoom's at home.
I like it. That's my first impression after one day of use on a K20D and K30. This lens was a Warehouse Deal that came packaged in a pillow pack. See photo. Of course it was all the way inside when received. Perfectly adequate. First use was annoying for a couple minutes. Mounting seemed very tight.
Amazing quality lens, beautiful design, very luminous,
I absolutely LOVE this lens!!!! I have purchased lenses that cost many times more than this, that didnt excite me like this little jewel does. Its lightning fast, insanely sharp, and extremely light and small. My large bodied Pentax K-50 (Pentax RULES!!!!
With this one you can take your K5/II/IIS K3/II on your pocket, everywhere. Could be great to have a 21mm with this size and prize.
Love this lens. It focuses purely on the subject and makes my k-x almost a point and shoot. Really recommend it.
