Sigma 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 in K mount

Sigma 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5

Sigma 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5I get impressed with this petite zoom mounted along with a used Pentax ME Super body. It is not my intention to get this lens but I have a broken ME Super body to fix and hence the buying of the used body that get mounted with this manual focus zoom from Sigma. I much prefer this Sigma MF zoom than few other consumer AF zooms as the manual focus is lose and allow fast focusing with smooth turn and the zoom lens comes with 1:5 close up. Focal range is good for walk around and I especially like it as a kit's lens for walk around

Impressions & Notes:
  • zoom lens quite good for walkaround
  • I favor this zoom range to 105mm as a kit lens for walk around purpose,
  • focal range very good for portraits
  • a good MF lens to practice manual focusing with strength in fast focusing
  • zoom lens is best in its small size and fast focusing ring
  • close up in 1:5 is not too impressive, a convenient feature with the zoom but shaprness can be better
  • very cute MF zoom from Sigma with reasonable good speed in f/3.5-4.5
  • while tested good in K10D, I think this lens will go well on a film body such as in K1000, Super Program, ME Super and the like
