Pentax 77mm f/1.8 Limited SMC P-FA review by Tord

Pros: Sharpest of the bunch!
Cons: Fairly expensive

This is beyond doubt the sharpest lens I've used, with the FA43 coming close! Fairly fast, small, and excellent build - one of the best lenses around!


Nothing else in this focal length compares, as far as I know!

Pentax 77mm f/1.8 Limited SMC P-FA review by Hawki
Review Date: 1/12/2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $575.00| Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp, Good Color and Contrast, Bokeh is very pleasing, Solid Feel
Cons: Expensive (but you get what you pay for)

What a lens!
Just about every aspect of this lens is superb. Out of focus is creamy smooth, images are sharp at all apertures and the color is acurate. The focus ring is well dampened and the build quality feels like a well build piece of equipment.
This lens took a whole lot of my allowance, but boy was it worth it.
About the only thing that is taking some time to get used to is the silver lens on a black body look. It is growing on me though ...

Pros: solid construction, metal barrel, very sharp lens
Cons: hard to find the black version, it comes in silver or black.

This is a superb portrait lens, or a very sharp moderate telephoto. On a film camera, it is great for head and shoulders portraits, but you'll have to apply a bit of blur. For product shots, it's clear and crisp. The multicoating is the best you can get.


On a digital SLR, it is a slightly longer telephoto, perfect for head shots (you'll still need to add some blur) or product details. The lens feels like the lenses did in the old days, when they were built to last. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for!
