The Pentax SMC FA 35mm f/2 is a great performer and even better - it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg. At f/2 the optical quality is already on a very good level and if you stop down a bit it easily reaches excellent to outstanding resolution levels.
This is a nice addition to the kit lenses that typically come with new cameras. It will give you the depth of field that an f3.5 lens just can't match.If you're coming from the film camera world (getting back into photography) and you have a crop sensor camera, a 35 mm lens will be closer to a 50...
This lens has very good IQ. The first lens I had for my K-5iis was a FA 1.4 50mm, great IQ, color rendition was excellent, well built, bokeh was also good. I bought this lens because of that same reason and for the larger focal coverage.
nice and quick lens with the Pentax k-1. sharp
Great for low light, landscapes and macros. lightweight, easy to use.The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because is not water resistant.
I had gotten a 50mm, but for indoors you have to get a mile away to get the shot you want. Auto-focus is noticable but not extremely loud. Pictures come out great. Its downfall is that it's hard to get the lens cap off with the tulip in position.
I got this lens about three weeks ago, and it is one of my new favorite lenses. Takes excellent portraits, great in low light situations, and compact. Focal length is very versatile. Definitely a good value.
It's my first prime lens and as I keep learning to use it, the images get better and better. I love the initial ease of use and flexibility in helping me learn how to become a better photographer it's making me.
Personal use. multi purpose lens. it is all-round lens and is just like the 50mm in the 70's. then perhaps, the world wasn't as congested as now; photographers use to have plenty of space to maneuver for taking a nice exposure with the standard 50mm lens, I think the 35mm will be the standard lens...
I am enjoying this lens. It focuses quickly, and is very sharp.So far I've used it for flowers and landscapes. I am very pleased with it's color rendition and constrast. Even though it is not a macro, the sharpness is such that you could mistake it as one.
The lens is light and produces sharp detail. Works beautifully with fast autofocus on my Pentax K-5.
