Pentax HD Pentax DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited Lens (Silver)
Key Features
  • Pentax K Mount
  • 105mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2.4 to f/22
  • Compact Portrait-Length Lens
The silver HD Pentax DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited Lens from Pentax is a prime portrait-length lens providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 105mm. This short-telephoto 23° angle of view is well-suited to portrait and landscape shooting as well as general long lens applications. A high-grade multi-layer HD coating has been applied to lens elements to help minimize flare and ghosting for enhanced contrast, clarity, and color fidelity and a nine-blade diaphragm contributes to an aesthetic out-of-focus quality to benefit shallow depth of field imagery. Additionally, an SP Protect coating has also been applied to the front lens element to effectively protect it from dirt, oil, and finger prints.

Does this lens work without electronic camera ...

Does this lens work without electronic camera control? If I use a dummy mount adapter to EF, can I do manual focus and iris control? Or is the fstop only able to be adjusted by a camera that speaks to the lens?
Asked by: Kyle
The aperture on this lens would need to be controlled by the camera or an adapter with manual aperture control.

How is this different from the older DA version with green ring?
Asked by: Uday
The HD lens coating is supposed to allow better color transmission and reduce lens flaring than the SMC. I saw a test report that shows it does work. I use this lens all the time. I get more compliments for pictures taken with this lens than any other lens I own.

Is the quality and compact size of prime lenses worth the loss of convenience compared to zooms?
Asked by: dan H.
You will definitely have more convenience and versatility with a good zoom lens, but primes tend to give you better photos for a specific situation, e.g., portraits. The photos I get with this prime lens are superb, and I'm very glad that I have this in my kit. If you cannot afford both a zoom lens and a prime lens now, start out with one and then add the other over time. Which one to start depends on the types of photos you'll be taking, e.g., travel and sports vs portraits.
