Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2014-08-14
This lens has Pentax Super Multi-Coating (SMC)
Made by Asahi opt. co. in Japan
Analogue B&W film
It's all metal and are very solid and well built.
The feel of this is also very good.
A lens which is quite small, lightweight but with still great build quality.
Close focus, good image quality and usually not very expensive to buy.
Not much more one can ask and yes this makes this lens a very nice one.
Image quality wide open has a good center sharpness but a little curved focal plane which gives some corner softness at infinity.
It's not perfect but I find it very nice wide open.
Stop it down a little and it is very nice and sharp.
Also renders very nice with good contrast and bokeh.
Value for your money
Quite small & lightweight plus has still a good close focus
A bit curved focal plane
