SMC PENTAX D FA 645 55mm F2.8AL (IF) SDM AW

The postman just delivered my new 645 55mm lens. The 645D body should arrive in the next couple of days.

This is the first autofocus lens I have bought in 9 years. It is also the first lens I’ve ever bought without an aperture ring. The lens does have depth of field markings which are important for me, although it looks like it will be much harder to use them accurately compared to my larger 67 lenses. A big bonus of the lens is that, just like the 645D body, it is All Weather (AW). This is a useful feature for travel photographers, especially those who live in “Typhoon Alley”. Of course the most important thing about a lens is the quality of the images it produces. For that I shall have to wait a few more days, until then this is an impressive paperweight with a very very long name.
