The optical design utilizes one aspherical element to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness, and an HD Coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.

One aspherical element helps to suppress spherical aberrations and distortion for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.

SP (Super Protect) Coating has also been applied to the front element to guard against moisture and grease.

Pentax HD FA 35mm f/2 Reviews

Beautiful

I have an earlier version of this lens, the FA 35/2.0; I think the only optical difference is the coatings. I love it; this lens takes beautiful pictures. Yet it's so small and light; not really all that much more than a pancake lens. And 35mm makes a great walkaround normal focal length on an APS-C sensor camera.

Classic 50 mm f2 Film Feel

I always enjoyed my classic film Pentax K1000 with a SMC 50mm f2, true to being a Pentaxian I went looking for a digital equivalent and found the answer in the FA 35 mm f2 currently using it on an APS-C Pentax camera body, the quality is there and the feel of those film days are back again !!

Bought to replace 35mm 1:2.4 AL. Color fidelity and sharpness are above expectations. Small size and low weight make this combo quite unobtrusive. No regrets!
