Ricoh has introduced the event of its third "Star Sequence lens" and its second Prime lens: the HD Pentax-D FA * 85mm f / 1.four SDM AW. Like earlier FA * lenses, this 85mm guarantees to offer "excellent image high quality" and "top quality workmanship" to Pentax DSLR customers.
The FA * 85mm f / 1.four continues to be in growth, however its optical method and manufacturing high quality promise a "no compromise" design.
Inside you will see that three Tremendous ED parts, an aspherical component and a lately developed Supersonic 'direct drive motor (SDM) to deal with autofocus. The opening is managed by 9 rounded blades, and the entire thing is wrapped in a water-proof design that can shield your glass from mud and moisture.
In line with Pentax, this lens will match the optical efficiency of the FA * 70-200mm f / 2.eight and the FA * 50mm f / 1.four – that’s: premium. All lenses within the Star collection would have the next three traits:
Absolute best picture high quality with uniform sharpness from the middle to the perimeters of the picture.
Giant opening with a very expressive picture impact.
Prime quality manufacturing and supplies with nice robustness and straightforward dealing with.
After all, this mixture of efficiency and construct high quality shouldn’t be cheap, if the 50mm FA * lens is one thing to go by. Though there isn’t any official worth or launch date for the FA * 85mm f / 1.four but, the 50mm f / 1.four prices $ 1,100, so we don't not count on to explain this lens as "reasonably priced" as soon as it’s formally launched.
