It was based on Pentax FA 35mm f2.0, and designed again for digital cameras.
Aperture 2.0 decreased to 2.4, but weight really gone to right. Badly mount assy. is not metallic material anymore. it's released for K-r (and also other P-K mount) as a fixed focal bundle lens.
Seems like a limited models. ( Pentax's high valued limited fixed focal lens )
Actually design started from same base.( as I know. )
So I'm planning for buying Pentax DA 35mm f2.4 for myself at last of this year.
It seems be ... I will still alone until buying this lens.
So I'll buy this, and I could be take more shots in Winter.
Even he was a man who has 4 octaves and unbelievable vocalism.
It was about 20 years ago. One of my friend give a tape to me for trying to listen. I can see a title that written in hand - "Queen".
I asked to him. "Is that a kind of Pop music ?", he nodded. So I was think "Queen" is a pop music band. it was so idiot until I tuned up in my cassette tape player.
I can't remember what it was player. at that time, most of cassette tape player are SONY or PANASONIC and SAMSUNG or LG... whatever, important thing is supporting DOLBY NR(Noise Reduction). and my tape payer not built in Dolby NR. so when I listening music, I can hear noise, too.
With my tape player, Queen was a impact on me.
Freddie's vocal was so clean and loud. So incredible, how a human make this sound?
is it a real ? there's many questions. how it is possible ? it belongs to all thing about Freddie's voice. And I understanding about him to read some magazines kinda rock/metal.
And my memory left to him as "God" of rock.
With Judas Priest, they are the best rock musician to me.
I will remember him, again.
