Chinon 28mm f/2.8 Vintage Lens Review

28mm f/2.8

Before the advent of the AF lens the typical amateur lens line-up would be 35mm-50mm-135mm, which eventually evolved to 28mm-50mm-135mm as our idea of what constituted a wide angle developed. Apart from the marque offerings there were a vast number of third party 28mm lenses, usually f/2.8, some good, some less so. The Chinon name in the UK was fairly synonymous with Dixons Photographic, featuring cameras and lenses sourced from many Japanese factories. Here we have a fairly late and pristine multi coated K mount lens, coupled with a Pentax K-1 36MP full frame body. Let's see what it can do.
