Currently Pentax has as many as four lenses with a focal length near 50 mm on its offer. We tested smc FA 50 mm f/1.4, and smc DA* 55 mm f/1.4 SDM models long ago. Now the time has come for the Pentax smc DA 50 mm f/1.8. Enjoy our review!
"Although the Pentax company doesn’t offer a full frame digital reflex camera they evidently have a soft spot for classic fixed-focus lenses with a focal length near 50 mm, which can be considered as standard instruments only on full frame; on an APS-C/DX sensor they can qualify as rather a casual portrait lens. Currently Pentax has as many as four such lenses on its offer: the oldest, full frame Pentax smc FA 50 mm f/1.4, an equally old Pentax smc D FA 50 mm f/2.8 Macro, the Pentax smc DA* 55 mm f/1.4 SDM, launched in 2008, and the newest one, the Pentax smc DA 50 mm f/1.8..."
