Pentax has revamped the DA Limited lens range adding a rounded diaphragm opening and new HD coatings for improved rendering, transmission and lower ghosting and flare. Read on to find out how well the new HD DA 21mm f3.2 pancake model performs.
Announced in June this year, the K-50 is an accessibly priced environmentally sealed DSLR featuring a built-in stabilization and a 16-MPix APS-C size CMOS sensor. As Pentax has yet to introduce a full-frame DSLR to the range the K-50, like others before it, can benefit from one of the largest lens ranges designed for the smaller APS-C sensor. The result is an appealing and unsurpassed range of compact and highly portable primes and zooms. We have analyzed the optical properties of 28 different models in total from Pentax as well as third-party makers, mounted on the new K-50, to help you in your selection either when buying new for the first time or when simply choosing which lens to take with you on your next shoot.
Here is a new series featuring the results of Pentax prime lenses mounted on the compatible camera with the best resolution thus far, the Pentax K5. (But as usual, you can consult DxOMark to see the results for these lenses when mounted on other compatible camera bodies, such as the Pentax K7 or Km.)
