Wide angle lens with close focusing capabilities
« on: November 22, 2008, 03:45:47 pm »

Hi there.
I´m looking for a wide angle [circa 14mm] lens suitable for the KAF2 mount, which has close focusing capabilities. Now, even if they do not exist on other mounts, I can precisely recall the existence of one Pentax DA lens which can focus as close as 5cm, even if the lens doesn´t say so. I know, I know that it looks surreal, but it does exist. I don´t know if it is the DA14 F2.8 or the DA 16-45 F4 the one which does that. Any clues?

I wouldn´t care about having any other type of K mount, brand, or nationality [be it Zeiss, Jena, Zenithar, Industar, Helios, Jupiter, Kiev, Cosina-Voightlander, Tamron, Kiron, Sigma, Vivitar, Komine; they will all give focus confirmation on a Pentax DSLR], or M42 lens.

I do recall seeing a comment about this -think Mike Johnston said it-, but I don´t know where and which lens was.

Thank you on beforehand.

PS: Yep, architectural model photography it is.
