Review Rikenon 1: 2 50mm Ricoh

Rikenon 1: 2 50mm Ricoh is a simple fifty kopeck piece with a Pentax K mount. In my opinion, the lens has an interesting bokeh, soft at F / 2.0 due to aberrations. It is sharp enough at closed apertures and is generally a pretty inexpensive manual fix.

The lens has a metal bayonet mount, but the case itself is made of plastic and is not very pleasant to the touch. The focus ring rotates approximately 120 degrees, the trunk of the lens travels forward, while the front lens does not rotate. MDF is 60 centimeters. The lens has a total of 6 aperture blades; the aperture on Pentax cameras works automatically (i.e. blinking aperture).

    Arkady, are you harsh on Live View? or years of training?)))

    • Arkady Shapoval

      On different cameras with different lenses in different ways.

  • Zane

    No K10 Live View. But there is a confirmation of the focus, which works on any lens.

  • Nath

    Very bright review !!! You look at the photos and understand that everything is still not lost and autumn can give a little heat, even through the camera’s lens))))

  • X ray

    Very interesting pictures with birds. It seems that they are about to fly into the camera :)

  • arnetik

    Thanks for the review. Please do not forget the pentaxists. Just your reviews are very high quality. There are no such reviews anywhere else.

  • Sergei

    Arkady, please tell me to this lens on the K10 auto focus or manual?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      This is a manual lens without auto focus, otherwise I would write about speed in the review.

  • Gennady

    Hello, please describe the RIKENON ZOOM 28-100 lens, its quality, price, etc., macro. I want to buy it and I don’t know if my Pentax K-30 camera has a whale lens

  • Glory

    Is it possible to use a lens on the Olympus 520 through an adapter?

  • Koba

    But it seems to me that, like most fifty dollars with a fast aperture (read with a maximum aperture of 2.0), this one also works quite well, and it has a picture, and, most importantly, the back board is blurred at a height. And his ceta sometimes is 15-20 dollars for a great copy. The examples of photographic images shown here indicate that this lens is of sufficient quality.
