HD PENTAX-FA 43mmF1.9 LimitedA single-focus 43mm lens that faithfully captures the depth of field as seen by the human eye, while delivering a beautiful image with rich, smooth gradation transitions and a true-to-life reproduction of depth, ambience and subject texture
This standard lens has a 43mm focal length, which is equal to the diagonal length of a 35mm-film image area. Its unique focal length captures the image as if seen by the human eye, and produces a natural sense of depth as observed by the naked eye.
Compared with conventional 50mm standard lenses, which were popular during the golden days of film photography, this 43mm lens provides a slightly broader field of view to more effectively capture today’s subjects — such as high-rise buildings, wide streets and fashionable cityscapes.
In addition to the acclaimed optical performance of the smc PENTAX-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited — a best-seller for more than 20 years since its market launch — this lens newly features the PENTAX-original HD coating* to deliver crisp, well-defined images even under demanding conditions, and a completely round-shaped diaphragm to produce a natural, beautiful bokeh (defocus) effect.
