Owner reviews: Pentax-A* 85 mm f/ 1.4

Felipe Saldanha 23.05.2017 14:40:21
Period of use: 1 month

Strengths:

Lens incredibly sharp, creamy bokeh,
Easy handling,
For those who do not have problems with manual lenses, it is a great request,

Ideal in canon systems use EMF chip to adjust the back focus or front focus,
The best lens I have ever used for portraits,
E has already used Zeiss Planar T 85mm 1.4 (C / Y), canon 85mm 1.2L,

It's another lens level, one of the best Pentax standards.


Weaknesses:

A little CA when opened but if it goes from f2
