Two words: Prime Lens

24 Aug 2009 | mloskot

Today, during a short trip to Watford, I was testing my new gadget brought to me by weihnachtsmann called eBay (but he asked for ten pints of proper lager, what a tank!). It is prime lens SMC PENTAX-A 1:2 50 mm. It’s an old lens but it’s a superb piece of optical craft dated between 1985 and 1998. No modern rubbish plastic. Pure metal classic!






After first five shots taken in darknesses of the night and the Underground, my conclusion is quite simple, the kit lens Pentax SMC-DA 18-55mm that comes with Pentax K10D body belongs to a trash bin. Pentax prime lens rock and it’s not British, it’s Japanese :-)
