The lens has been tested on a Pentax K20D to ensure that it functions correctly and the test images are of very high quality; very sharp and contrasty.
The SMC Pentax-M 50mm has a fast f/1.7 maximum aperture and is acknowledged by enthusiasts as one of the great prime lenses because of its superb performance, build quality and handling. This is a manual focus Pentax K-mount (bayonet) lens. The precision optical construction and the Pentax SMC multi-coating ensure excellent resolution, sharpness, contrast and control of flare under all conditions. The images taken with this lens are typically of noticeable higher quality when compared to those taken with the majority of consumer / prosumer zoom lenses.
The lens is compatible with all Pentax K-, KA-, and KAF-mount 35mm SLRs and all Pentax and Samsung GX Series digital SLRs. Although the lens is manual focus, on autofocus Pentax SLRs the focus confirmation function can be used. For further details of compatible SLR bodies see the compatibility section below.
On Pentax digital SLRs this lens affords an angle-of-view approximately equivalent to a focal length of 75mm, however the maximum aperture remains at f/1.7. The fast maximum aperture allows shooting in low light conditions and provides a narrow depth of field to isolate subjects from their background and, combined with the short telephoto magnification, this means it is ideally suited to photographers that want a very high quality portrait lens for the digital format.
