      In July, the users of Pentax digital reflex cameras will be able to enjoy the benefits of a new, bright lens - FA* 50 mm f/1.4 SDM AW. Unfortunately, out of the pair of modern ”Star” lenses (HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW and HD PENTAX-DA 11-18mm f/2.8), announced this year, only the first one will appear on sale. The premiere of the second one is scheduled for 2019.
       
      Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW is a fixed lens. Its optical system consists of 15 lenses placed in 9 groups (3 apsherical lenses, 1 made of abnormal-dispersion glass). The aperture of the lens is made of 9 blades and the minimum focus distance is 40 cm.
       

      1). Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW
       
      The new AF ring motor is supposed to ensure a 7.5x greater torque from the one in the previous constructions of this producer. The effect of this is quicker and more accurate focusing.
       

      2). Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW
       
      The properties of the aperture and the coatings of the lenses: HD, Aero Bright II and Super Coating, are supposed to ensure the background blur and good contrast in hard lighting conditions. Light reflections and flares are supposed to be kept to a minimum. The coatings of the lenses enable keeping them clean.
       

      3). Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW
       
      The lens is, of course, sealed and splash-proof. Since the electromagnetic aperture has been applied in the lens, we will be able to use it only with the latest models of Pentax cameras: K-1 Mark II, K-1, K-3 II, K-3, KP, K-70, K-S2 or K-S1.
       
      Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW is to appear on sale at the end of July and the price of the lens, as at today, is $1200. You can preorder this lens here.

      Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro is an interesting lens which has been presented some time ago. It is a full-frame lens, designed having in mind macrography.

      The optical system of the lens enables the image zoom from 2.5 to 5x and it consists of 8 elements placed in 6 groups,  among which one lens is made of UD low-dispersion glass. 
       

      1). Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro
       
      Each element has been covered with anti-reflective coatings, which are supposed to significantly minimize light reflection and the appearance of light leaks and flares. It is also supposed to improve overall contrast of photographs in demanding conditions. The lens is equipped with a 8-blade aperture which can be regulated within the range of f/2.8-f/16. The focal length of 25mm ensures 10.3-grade field of view.  The lens is, of course, manual.
       

      2). Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro
       
      Venus Optics Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro is to appear on sale in April. It will be available with Nikon F, Canon EF, Sony FE and Pentax K mounts and it will cost $399.
