Back in February, Ricoh released three HD Pentax-FA Limited lenses for K-mount DSLR cameras: the HD Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 Limited, HD Pentax-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited and HD Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited.

These three lenses feature the same optical construction as their respective non-HD predecessors, but have been updated with a new aperture diaphragm and Ricoh’s High-Definition (HD) coating. Ricoh says the HD coating 'assures higher light transmittance and lower reflectance to deliver sharp, clear images free of flare and ghost images, even under such adverse lighting conditions as backlight.'

We've been shooting with the 43mm recently and we've just posted a gallery of samples. Be sure to check out our previously-published gallery from the 77mm F1.8, too.
