It’s been long-awaited and after a development announcement in March, Pentax has now officially announced the HD PENTAX-D FA★ 85mm F1.4 SDM AW, ahead of its original “late 2020” target. This is the second fixed focal length lens added in Pentax’s newest “Star” lens series, adding to the 50mm f/1.4 released in 2018.
There was some speculation that the Pentax 85mm was simply a rehoused Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art, but now that the optical formula for the new 85mm f/1.4 has been released, I think it’s a pretty safe bet to say that it isn’t.
Architecture is an art form, it is a branch of science, it is a business, it is the architect’s personal expression as well as that of the commissioner. So, it is not surprising that I see architectural photography as overlapping various forms, kinds, branches of photography.

Have you seen those “Bingo cards” going around Instagram lately. I’ve done one for readers, one for travelers, and Brandon Woelfel now made one for photographers. It contains all those terrible things we’ve done and those that have happened to us, but there are some cool ones too. In this hilarious video, Jessica Kobeissi goes through the Bingo card, “confessing all the terrible things she’s done as a photographer.” Follow along and see if you’ve done them too.
We’ve heard of nightmare photographers before, but here’s one of the most bizarre story I’ve heard so far. Three months before he was supposed to get married, Justin Montney’s fiancée suddenly died. Since the wedding was not going to take place, he asked the wedding videographer for a refund. But what he got was public bullying, “Life’s a b**ch, Justin” and “We hope you sob and cry all day for what would have been your wedding day.”
Rokinon/Samyang has today announced their new AF 85mm f/1.4 RF lens for the Canon RF mount. While it appears to simply be a new mount version of their existing AF 85mm f/1.4 for Sony, it presents something of a bargain when it comes to fast portrait glass for Canon’s EOS R mirrorless cameras. The price isn’t quite as good as some might hope, though.
Handheld focus stacking is a brilliant solution for many scenarios. It saves you all the troubles of using a focusing rail in the field and provides a maximum of flexibility.
Whenever you need more depth of field than you can get with trading off image quality, this is the way to work around it.
