Pentax 26121 overview

  • 1Description

The smc FA 75mm f/2.8 Lens from Pentax is a standard or normal lens with a 35mm format equivalent focal length of 59mm and a 40.5 degree angle of view that closely approximates the human field of vision. The focal length allows a relatively simple 6 element/5 group lens design that produces sharp detail with a minimum of aberrations. The 75mm f/2.8 renders images without curvature of field found in wide angle lens or the flatness and compression found in telephotos.

Its fast 2.8 maximum aperture is brighter in the viewfinder and allows low light shooting without hiking up the ISO, renders artfully blurred backgrounds and permits higher shutter speeds in standard lighting conditions.

Standard Lens, Normal Field of View
A popular all-around lens, the 75mm f/2.8 renders images without curvature of field found in wide angle lens or the flatness and compression found in telephotos. It adapts well to extenders and auxiliary lenses for close up work
2.8 Maximum Aperture
The fast 2.8 maximum aperture gives you a host of benefits including a bright viewfinder image, low light shooting capability and a pleasantly blurred background
Lightweight
At only 7.56 oz and 1.58" in height, the 75mm f/2.8 takes up minimal space in your camera bag and can fit in most pockets when swapping out lenses

    Pentax 26121 reviews

    smc FA 75mm f/2.8 Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile I purchased this kit lens as it seems to be referred to often at the same time I purchased the 645Z and am always surprised by the results for portraiture when I use it. I recently had to use it on location to do head shots for a law office, everyone is busy and they don't have time so with the cramp onsite space I was provided I chose this lens. Wide open the depth of field is shallow enough for good portraits and the focal length is just long enough that I'm not bothered by any wide angle appearance in the final product. This was the cheapest lens I purchased as part of my kit and probably the most versatile, overall I've been very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this lens This lens is small and light compared to most medium format lenses. I bought this as the first lens to use with my new Pentax 645Z. I was not disapointed. Resolution is great and the nice shallow depth of field at f/2.8 gives a very nice backgroung out of focus effect in portraits. Landscapes are also very pleasing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good This lens really did surprise me and I did not expect it being that good. Comparing this lens to its medium format siblings made by other companies it is a real bargain with its relatively low price. Another bonus is its low weight. When attached to my Pentax 645D the autofocus is dead-on, center sharpness at open aperture is amazing, borders and corners sharpen up pretty well when stopping down. Maximum performance is reached between f5.6 and f8, f11 is still close and from f16 on diffraction takes its toll. There is just a tiny bit of CA in the corners in extrem front lighting situations which is easily removed. This extremely low level of CA contributes to my surprise as well. The color rendering is neutral. At the days back of film this lens was sort of kit lens being sold with the 645N bodies. And kit lenses were quite often said to be a cheap add-on just doing their job. But this lens (at least my sample) is a very good one. I am enjoying it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, affordable performance Tremendous value for money. Though not fully metal. well constructed and quite sharp. Light and small as well. Hard to imagine a better value in MF. AF is reasnoably quick in decent ligth. My only real gripe is the MF/AF switch which is difficult to access, particularly when out in a snowy field in the cold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very small, very light, very sharp Considering that this is the cheapest you can get an FA lens without going for used, I was skeptical. The image quality exceeds my expectations. Quality of construction won't be confused with Hasselblad, but neither will price, and it's still pretty well built. Personally, I prefer this lens to the 55mm offering, but YMMV in that regard.
