The Pentax-FA HD 43mm f1.9 sits as the ‘standard’ within the HD PENTAX-FA Limited series. This focal length corresponds exactly to the diagonal of the image sensor of a 35mm full-frame camera - an exact replica of the human eye’s natural angle of vision. It has a bright f/1.9 maximum aperture that copes well in low-light conditions, in turn, providing greater control of the depth of field. The nine-blade rounded diaphragm helps to produce a pleasing bokeh, whilst the PENTAX high-grade HD coating allows for increased light transmission. Impeccable image rendition and thorough ghosting/flare control provide an accurate, true-to-life colour balance. Alongside this, the PENTAX SP coating effectively repels dust, stains, and debris from the glass. In regard to imagery, the smooth and rich tonal gradation portrays the sense of three-dimensionality. It is a truly special lens, flying the flag for the stunning HD PENTAX-FA Limited series.

Expanded Pentax-FA HD 43mm f1.9 Limited Lens Key Features:

Precise & Versatile

Designed for use on full-frame Pentax K-mount cameras, this pancake lens can be used on APS-C models, offering an 35mm format equivalent focal length of 66m. This is an all-rounder focal length, lending itself to the likes of street photography to portraiture. The lens is equipped with a wide, bright and fast f1.8 maximum aperture. This not only affords more flexibility in low-light condition, but provides expressive control of depth-of-field and selective focus. As well as this, the 9-blade rounded diaphragm will produce beautifully smooth and aesthetically pleasing bokeh.

Aesthetic Appeal

The Pentax-FA HD 43mm f1.9 Limited Lens combines the modern with the traditional, with a portable and stylish, vintage accents, and accessible aperture ring. A fully-integrated lens hood, exclusive aluminium lens cap, and lens bag are also provided.

When it comes to imagery, the Pentax-FA HD 43mm f1.9 utilises an SP (Super Protect) coating to repel dust, stains, and debris. This coating also helps to make the glass much easier to clean after a long days shooting, whilst resisting common scratches and abrasions. The PENTAX high-grade HD coating provides a heightened light transmission that more conventional lens coatings cannot compete with. This ensures maximum contrast and sharpness without any flare or ghosting, a great feature for when you are employing a bright back-lit set up in the studio.

The Limited Series

Some 25 years ago, PENTAX introduced the ‘Limited Series’ at the time of traditional SLR technology. They got straight to the point, producing three lenses with distinct focal length designations to include; a wide-angle 31mm, a standard 43mm, and a portrait-specific 77m. The common theme became clear; intricately detailed construction for impressive imaging quality. This now forms the foundation of the HD PENTAX-FA Limited series consisting of the 31mm f1.8, 43mm F1.9, and the 77mm F1.8.

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
