If you’ve outgrown the standard kit lens for your new entry-level DSLR, a second lens can add a new dimension to your photography. With a plethora of options available, picking out the right one can be a bit of a minefield, but our best lenses review is here to help. We round up here the big talking points on the 39 lenses that our technicians have tested on the Pentax K-S1.
Just six months after introducing the K-S1, Pentax has launched an updated model featuring a full weather-resistant shell and thankfully no flashing lights. Positioned as the world’s smallest dustproof and weather-resistant DSLR for outdoor enthusiasts who want to travel light, the K-S2 continues to use the same 20.1Mp APS-C CMOS sensor as its predecessor. Let’s run through the specs to see what else is in store.
The K-S1 is Pentax’s latest entry-level DSLR featuring a 20.1Mp APS-C CMOS sensor and Anti Aliasing filter simulator. Targeted towards consumers taking their first plunge into DSLR photography, the K-S1 boasts a compact design, flashing LED lights, illuminated rear controls and choice of 12 colours. With the sensor scores in, lets see how the K-S1 compares to the competition.
Pentax has launched a new entry-level DSLR featuring an unconventional design with flashing green LED lights in the handgrip. Boasting some ‘user-friendly’ modifications and available in 12 colours, Pentax are hoping the new K-S1 appeals to consumers yet to switch to a DSLR. We get under the hood to find out more.
I think the Sigma 18-35 f/1,8 might win over both the wide angle prime and normal prime if tested.
Is it possible to extract individual DXO lens scores for each focal lengths of the zooms? If so, i would like a diagram with a log focal length-axis and a DXO lens score-axis, where the lenses are plotted as dots (primes) og lines (zooms). I think that might give better overview.
I'm really surprised that the FA Limited lenses didn't get tested here. These lenses have been around for about 15+ years and represent Pentax's best optical designs. Is there any chance these lenses can be tested one day? I understand this is more work but I'm sure it would be greatly appreciated here. :)
Hi Fernand, Thank you for pointing this out. We are currently investigating the inconsistency, that may be due to a change in the € conversion rate. £ price is correct, and we're having a closer look at whether we should transpose currencies that are not specified in the press release or not.
