The Pentax Lens Gallery


The Pentax Lens Gallery is an ongoing project of members of the Pentax-Discuss Mail List (PDML). This gallery aims at documenting particular aspects (such as bokeh and flare) of Pentax and related third-party lenses that cannot easily be quantified by numbers, but might be illustrated with images.
