Pentax HD 35mm f/3.5 AL IF Aperture Series: Close Range, Dolls (645Z)

Pentax 645 35mm f/3.5 AL IF

Get Pentax 645 and Pentax 35mm f/3.5 at B&H Photo.

In field of view and depth of field terms, the Pentax HD 35mm f/3.5 AL [IF] is equivalent to a 27.3mm f/2.8 lens as compared to a full frame DSLR (using the long side of the frame). At about $1599 it offers high performance at relatively modest cost. Highly recommended for Pentax 645Z shooters.

The Pentax HD 35mm f/3.5 AL [IF]offers a close focus capability down to 1:4 which means that for its 43.8mm X 32.8mm sensor it can capture an image field of width 175.2mm.

This scene as captured is ~380mm wide, hence the reproduction ratio is about 1:8.6 at a subject to front lens element distance of ~12 inches, ~14 inches from subject to sensor plane.

Does image quality as seen in the landscape analysis also hold up at close range?
