Pentax 135mm f/2.8 IF SMC P-FA review by danag42
Review Date: 8/6/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $270.00| Rating: 9 

 
Pros: very fast focus, sharp lens
Cons: modern lenses have too much plastic in their construction

For a modern lens, which supposedly is better for the use of polycarbonate material in the barrel, this is pretty sturdy. I prefer the old metal barrels, but this lens focuses quickly and accruately and produces very sharp images. Pentax's multicoating is as good as it gets, and the lens is light enough to be easy to use (another benefit of polycarbonate?).
