This lightweight 50mm macro lens has a bright maximum aperture of f/2.8, costs around £320 and offers life-sized magnification at its closest focus distance. On a Pentax DSLR this lens provides an angle of view roughly equivalent to a 75mm lens used on a 35mm camera.
I shoot a lot of product/high end crafts and this lens fills in nicely between the Pentax 35 mm and 100 mm macro lenses. Image quality is excellent, and the lens seems to be well built. It is even better than the excellent SMC A manual focus 50 mm macro it replaces.
This lens simply does what you expect it to do. Sharp wide open, close focussing distance, quick shift. It's a pity is has no WR (put it in the wet grass...)
No WR, My copy does not focus at infinity...
I bought this lens to use mainly on my Pentax ZX-5. Great performance and even with a maximum aperture of f 2.8 it is more compact than many manual focus f 3.5 lenses.
I bought tis lens for closed-up work in low light conditions. I am really surprised about clear pictures one can get. Build quality of lens is great and will last for years to come.
