Opinion:Lens to say the least exquisite to use. It comes with a completely aluminum construction, from the barrel to the paralight cap. The dimensions are almost ridiculous in comparison to modern monsters; 130 grams of weight and two and a half centimeters in length make it an unsuspected average portrait canvases that goes unnoticed. The focus dial is soft and muted to such an extent that it looks like a manual focus lens. As you rotate it from the same feeling that you feel with goals without autofocus. In autofocus mode it is fast, precise and not noisy, always keeping in mind that it is moved by the camera engine so it can never be as quiet as an ultrasonic engine. The QuickShift focus allows you to instantly switch from autofocus to manual focus only by tapping the dial. The optical yield is very good. The sharpness is exceptional and the chromatic aberrations are almost non-existent as well as the distortion. The minimum focus distance is 70 centimeters, they may seem few but for portraits they are too much. The diaphragm is nine rounded slats and keeps the light points out of focus even with closed diaphragms. The spherical aberration is correct so the light spheres of the out-of-focus points are illuminated evenly, this makes them pleasant to look at and without the brighter contours typical of the lenses that favor the extreme sharpness of the focus plane at the expense of the quality of the blurred making it nervous and not progressive. In fact, the blurring of this lens is what I like, that is, with a soft and gentle passage between the focus plane and the out-of-focus The lampshade deserves a note apart because it screws to the 49mm lens fillet and is extensible. Therefore it can be mounted and you forget to have it. The only flaw is the cap which is also aluminum and covered with black felt but fits under pressure and my fear is that it can accidentally detach. It is solved by replacing it with a 43mm spring cap. Curiosity... this lens covers the fullframe even if it is not officially declared
Pros:Size, weight, optical performance, construction
Opinion:Portrait lens of high quality and high-class (equivalent to 105mm on FF). Difficult to find major flaws. Impeccable construction in aluminum, extremely compact dimensions and weight ridiculous (just over 1 pound) .rnDal optically has made a quite impressive: very sharp wide open since become even slightly sharp closing the diaphragm. Distortion and aberrations virtually negligible, slight vignetting at full aperture. Bokeh generally pleasant with a good yield of the light fixtures. Another plus the presence of the hood integrato.rnPer who does portraits in the house perspective Pentax is definitely recommended.
