    Default Chinese-made Pentax-compatible lenses

    i know there are some fanatics out there who are all into russian/eastern europe lenses

    but how about our red neighbor, China?

    haha did some research,

    theres a site dedicated to Lenses (all mounts) and theres 1 antiquated one that mounts into PK system

    Zhu Jiang 50/1.8
    *50mm/F1.8׼Aͷ ֧Զع-Ա
    it says 自动曝光
    don't know if that means auto-focus or just auto-aperature

    i think it means "auto exposure" - meaning PK-A - with auto aperture.

    but i'm a little unsure - there's no 'A' setting on the aperture ring

    these are stuff u might get for novelty purposes i suppose... from the taobao ad, the sample pic looks ok, sharp, nice bokeh.

    but u never know what u're getting with such unknown lenses - like russian lenses, the QC could be very varied. some are sharp, some are not. without modern coating, expect flare, CA and other flaws.

    i guess thats part of the fun of getting such lenses like forrest gump would say 'life is like a box of chocolates... u never know what u're gonna get'.

    I think it mean av mode..ie you set the aperture on the lens and it will auto set the shutter speed..there is no exposure compensation..something like mv1 so the only way to play around with exposure is to change the iso setting

    there are a lot of PK mount chinese lens, as my father use a Chinese brand called "Phenix" (yes, not Pheonix)

    as the Phenix brand camera is using PK mount, (some are MD/MC mount) ; one of the biggest and oldest camera brand in China, but after digital age comes, they fade away.

    their old lens is pretty good, but modern age, they are cutting costs and still produce manual lens, but built quality is ok but not up to the Pentax M series, while image quality are quite good.

    their 85mm f2 and 135mm f2.8 manual lens fill a good place for those manual lens users; and 24mm f2.8 is also available brand new. some has A contacts as well.

    my father's "Phenix 28-135mm f3.8-5.2 1:4 macro" is now working on my Pentax very well, but it is 600g, so a bit heavy, but the glass it big and solid.



    Hua Guang, Zhu Jiang, Feng Huang (Phenix) are the major brand still producing manual lens.

    But for manual lens, it always recommend a good split focus screen, and the stock screen is not good for accurate manual focus, unless you use live view to focus
