Pentax smc DA 50mm f/1.8 Lens
Key Features
  • Very Fast f/1.8 Maximum Aperture
  • Excellent Low-Light Lens
  • Pleasing Bokeh (Out-of-Focus Areas)
  • SP Coating Repels Dust, Water, Grease
The smc DA 50mm f/1.8 Lens from Pentax is a fast f/1.8 lens for cameras with a Pentax K mount. Mounted to a camera with an APS-C sensor, this lens gives an angle of view equivalent to a 76.5mm telephoto lens--ideal for portraits. The wide f/1.8 aperture makes this an essential lens for working in low light, and it also delivers beautiful bokeh (the out-of-focus portion of a photograph). This lightweight (4.3 oz) lens is very compact--just 1.5" (3.8 cm) long. The addition of Pentax Super Protect (SP) coating to the lens helps prevent dust, water, grease and other substances from attaching themselves to a lens and degrading image quality.

question

Since this lens doesn't have aperture ring, What If I use it on Olympus OM-D EM5 Mark II with fotodix PK/M43 mount adapter(which doesn't have electronic contact), will aperture stay at f1.8 always? P.S. buying this lens primarily for pentax K5 and secondary for EM5 II.
Asked by: Vasanth V.
Correct, you wouldn't have control over the aperture and it would stay wide open at F/1.8
