Close to Perfect in Terms of Focal Length

Pentax SMCP-FA 43mm f/1.9 Fast Auto Focus Limited Edition LensThe Pentax SMCP-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited is a lens that is close to perfect in terms of focal length. In the 35mm format the ideal definition of a "standard" lens is 43mm, the distance from the corner to corner on a frame of 35mm film.

The 43mm f/1.9 Limited Edition has robust construction for many years of use. Images are sharp and contrasty thanks to Pentax's Super Multi Coating process, which results in a high retention of light. An incredibly lightweight lens with wonderful results.

The Pentax SMCP-FA 43mm f1.9 limited lens uses a TTL open-aperture metering for its photometric method. It has a fixed focal length of 49mm and a minimum focal distance of just 1.5 feet. You can use this lens with all Pentax SLR cameras, but the AF system only works with Pentax AF cameras. This lens comes with a case and a lens hood. 


The unique Pentax SMC P-FA 43mm F1.9 limited lens is close to perfect in terms of focal length. Its natural perspective of subjects makes it ideally suited for everyday use including indoor photography, traveling, and hiking. Like every Pentax lens, the SMC P-FA 43mm F1.9 lens features Pentax acclaimed SMC multi-layer coating to lower surface reflection, reduce ultraviolet rays, and deliver clear, high-contrast images.
