  • 1Description
  • 2Standard Lens, Normal Field of View
  • 32.8 Maximum Aperture
  • 4Lightweight

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

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.

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.

Transforms 645z to a lighter camera. Lens is superb.

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.

Sharp as a tack, wish it had a lens hood though

amazing workhouse lens for the 645Z

By Roy

I am a full time professional commercial/fashion photographer and recently added the pentax 645z camera to my toolbox. It was quickly apparent that the selection of good glass was limited for the 645z. I bought the 55, 75, 120 and the 150 and have absolutely fallen in love with the 75. Its not quite as sharp as the 120 but that was easily corrected in capture one or lightroom. In the studio the 75 is a must for full body fashion/portrait work and on location its a fantastic walk around lens. Its sharp all the way to the corners, I notice very little vignetting and it weighs next to nothing. I was skeptical at first because it was so inexpensive but now its has quickly risen to the top of my goto lenses for work! Highly recommended!
