  • why anyone would buy a manual focus lens baffles me, ok AF turn off when needed but just MF

    • harvey

      unless I have an af system that covers most of the frame, I often offset my focus quite a bit. Focusing and moving the camera can throw things off a bit. And I can always use live view and focus peaking.

    Looks good but I am afraid of build quality

    • Zos Xavius

      i think they are all metal barrels and seem well built. if i remember right people have complained about the lens hood feeling cheap.

  • Edgar_in_Indy

    same here, I don’t get it. But somebody must be buying them as they keep releasing new models.

  • SimenO

    For 700 $ I don’t get it, but for the right price, I’ll get one.

    • johnny

      I live in Asia. You can get it for a little more than $600. It’s not bad at all, and sharper than my 80 Summilux.

    • Zos Xavius

      If its half decent wide open $700 is cheap.

  • Spy Black

    Good to see Pentax getting some love. Can’t say I like the F-stop ring up front tho.
