Pentax SMC DA 50mm F1.8 Standard Lens :
The Pentax lens is designed specifically for Pentax K mount digital SLR cameras. When mounted to a
camera with an APS-C sensor, this lens gives an angle of view equivalent to a 76.5mm telephoto
lens--ideal for portraits.
Pentax lens is a standard 50mm lens with a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture that is ideal for blurring
backgrounds or for shooting in low light conditions.
The Pentax lens is ideal for portrait, still life, or low light photography. The rounded diaphragm
blades create a more circular aperture for smooth, beautiful bokeh at large aperture setting.
This Pentax SMC lens is very lightweight, only 122g and very compact. The addition of Pentax Super
Protect (SP) coating to the lens helps prevent dust, water, grease and other substances from
attaching themselves to a lens and degrading image quality.
At maximum aperture, sharpness in the centre of the frame is maximum, with clarity towards the
edges of the frame reaching good levels. Stopping down improves sharpness across the frame with
peak performance being realized at f/5.6.
Pentax SMC DA 50mm F1.8 Standard Lens is available at Microglobe at discounted price. Microglobe

The Pentax 50mm f1.8 prime lens gives excellent low light results with my Pentax K3 . I particularly wanted to use it for night video which gives good results in manual mode where I can use up to iso 3200 which can pick up night sky details.Really pleased with lens fast delivery from microglobe who are an excellent company.
