Pentax smc FA 100mm f/3.5 Macro

Pentax smc FA 100mm f/3.5 Macro lens
 

Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.

 

No Ultrasonic AF

Lenses with ultrasonic focusing mechanism tend to be quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.

 

No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.

 

No Low Dispersion lens element is used

Low Dispersion lens elements help to reduce chromatic aberration.

 

Not stabilized

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.

 

No drop-in filter support

Drop-in filters are used in those lenses where either the front lens is too large, or the field of view doesn't permit the use of traditional filters at the front of the lens. Usually bright tele and ultra-wide angle lenses support this filter type.

The smc P-FA 100mm F3.5 medium-telephoto lens offers a focal length of 100mm with a 24.5-degree angle of view, allowing the user to capture close-up images from a distance. It features a maximum magnification of 0.5 times at a minimum focusing distance of 1.41 feet, making it ideal for outdoor macro photography, such as close-up images of flowers. As the front section of the lens barrel does not rotate during focus adjustment, it is convenient for the user to take pictures with accessories such as a polarizing or gelatin filter.
