Pros: Detail, resolve, colors, MAF, sealing on flare.

Cons: Weight

Opinion: I recently purchased this lens so I reserve to update possibly in the future this review. What about what has already been said? Very little compared to previous reviewers, on one point I do not agree with previous reviews, about the flare or reflections that you want, I do purely landscape photos and then as a must we also fall and especially the sunsets, Frankly I have never found serious problems of flare, indeed I was amazed by the opposite of the ability to almost all the aperture to have shots free from flare even in the most pushed backlight, so in my opinion the flare phenomenon is not a problem, slightly Soft on the edges even at more closed diaphragms on all focal lengths, distortion at 15mm totally controllable in PP, or on camera activating the specific function (in this case the correction is never perfect at 100%). For the rest what about, it brings back excellent colors (on K1) sometimes too saturated for my taste, the resolution is excellent able to fully exploit the sensor of K1, suffers a bit of diffraction on high diaphragms from 13 up, the MAF for my genres is more than excellent , extremely valid, tropicalized construction? I do not know, I still have not put it to the test, the weight is and is felt, but if we consider the size and the number of glasses it contains is more than justified, the fact of not being able to use the filters "classic" because of the diameter of the front lens can still be t Ranquillamente solved using the Wonderpana system (HTTPS://YOUTU.BE/RSA0PAHP5U0). For the K1 is undoubtedly the best lens you can buy for landscapers, contains all the focal points for this sector, coupled with the D FA * 70-200mm f/2.8 and DC AW means to have a really complete kit, no need more!!! Apart from a 50mm, but here you can buy a 50ino SMC Series A 1.2 or 1.7 and you go to great with attached aperture adjustment directly in the car, spending really four money.

Pros: Fast and precise focusing, ideal focal range for landscapes, building quality and color rendition at the top

Cons: Size and weight, high price and some unwanted reflections against sun

Opinion: When you get used to the size and weight becomes impossible to remove it from K1, this objective is ideal for the Landscsta who with a lens has at least 5 of the most used in this genre: 15, 18, 20, 24, 30 and all at f/2.8. Certainly not an economic lens but the yield with the K1 is exceptional, the JPG that the machine with this lens are able to return have miraculous, both as a color and as a recovery of shadows in the case of underexposed frames. Another gem is the minimum focusing distance at 20 cm and the 9-blade aperture that contributes little to make this jewel a must for the Pentaxiani provided with K1.

Pros: Impeccable construction, speed and precision MAF, detail, outstanding chromatic yield

Cons: The lens is somewhat cumbersome and, due to the considerable camber of the frontal lens, does not allow the use of normal polarizers to be screwed in front; Yield to 2.8 good but not great

Opinion: It is perhaps the best Pentax lens in my possession and all in all I don't find it excessive the price, considering the quality; Constructively absolutely flawless, it has a capacity of exceptional detail, although it is better to close at least one stop to appreciate it at best, including edges, which is normal for this kind of optics. Another strong point of this lens is the chromatic rendition: As traditional Pentax colors are brilliant, vivid, bold; It is a lens, of course, dedicated to street (although penalized by the fact of not going through unnoticed!) and especially landscape, where it will give the best of itself; Ultimately, a recommended lens for Pentax FF landscapers.

Pros: Constitution, optical yield

Cons: Flare, Price

Opinion: The construction and perfect and protection from poor and Interperie are formidable. and a particular lens with that spherical lens but it has a good yield to all apertures and lengths. The flare and its weak point both with the sun and with artificial light, especially lights in the foreground and f22. For use with a FF for landscape, street and long exposures. Excessive price
