Pentax D FA 24-70mm f/2.8ED SDM WR Overview

A fast, standard zoom featuring a sophisticated optical design, the HD Pentax-D FA 24-70mm f/2.8ED SDM WR Lens from Pentax is designed for use on full-frame K mount DSLRs, as well as APS-C cameras where it provides a 36-105mm equivalent focal length range. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and pairs with a rounded nine-blade diaphragm to produce smooth shallow depth of field imagery. The lens' design incorporates a trio of extra-low dispersion elements, three aspherical elements, and one anomalous dispersion aspherical element to control a variety of aberrations and distortions in order to produce well-corrected images with notable sharpness and even illumination. An HD coating has also been applied to further benefit working in difficult lighting conditions by suppressing lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality.

Complementing the optical performance of the lens is a Supersonic Direct-drive Motor, which offers fast, quiet, and quick autofocus performance that is ideal for both stills and video shooting. A weather-resistant construction is also featured, for working in harsh environments, and a Quick-Shift Focus System and zoom lock lever offer intuitive handling and control.

Standard 24-70mm zoom lens is designed for Pentax K mount full-frame DSLRs/SLRs and is also compatible with APS-C models where it will provide a 36-105mm equivalent focal length range.
Fast f/2.8 constant maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range, benefits working in difficult lighting conditions, and offers greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field applications.
A 17 elements in 12 groups design features three extra-low dispersion elements, three aspherical elements, and one anomalous dispersion glass-molded aspherical element. This combination helps to substantially reduce chromatic aberrations and various distortions throughout the zoom range and also offers enhanced sharpness, clarity, and edge-to-edge illumination throughout the aperture range.
An HD coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality when working in harsh, backlit lighting conditions.
A Supersonic Direct-drive Motor (SDM) benefits autofocus operation with smooth, quiet, and accurate performance to support both stills and video applications.
A weather-resistant construction incorporates five weather seals to protect against moisture for working in inclement conditions.
A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.
Quick-Shift Focus System lets you manually control focus at any time, even when working in AF mode, by simply rotating the focus ring.
A zoom lock lever prevents the lens from extending under its own weight when carrying.

Could I use this lens on my K1000? i know it's an old manual focus film camera but I think this zoom would be nice for it lol
Asked by: Levi
You could but there is no aperture on the lens, so you will not be able to control exposure.

question

is this lens compatible with the 645Z?
Asked by: Andrew B.
D FA series lenses are for Full frame and APSC only. DA specifies Digital, F specifies Full Frame, and ALL full frame lenses that are KAF 3 and prior are fully functional on KAF 3 and prior APS-C crop sensors. With Pentax, you can put on pretty much any lens from full frame to APSC that is K-mount with exception to lenses made for the 645. You need to know the 645 is in its own little world, a separate animal from even Canon and Nikon and all supporting 3rd party lens manufacturers for the 645 is a MEDIUM FORMAT (gigantic sized) sensor. Unless you already own a 645, and I gather you do NOT or you would not be asking this question, I recommend with your limited knowledge to steer clear of the 645 all together until you learn more way further down the road (unless you are a bored millionaire with nothing else to do in life).

question

Is this lens compatible with the Pentax K20 D?
Asked by: art f.
I believe the K20D uses a mechanical focus linkage while this lens uses electric focusing only, so the automatic focus would not work. The lens is also quite large since it is a full-frame and the K20D does not need a lens this large.

question

Haida polarizer in 100-Pro holder shows mechanical vignetting from 24-29 mm. What are you using as polarizer. Simple screw in 82mm, slim line 82s. Any other filter holder System? LEE polarizer will probably work, but it is huge in size and price.
Asked by: Dirk R.
I use the following B+W 82MM Neutral Density 3.0-1,000X Multi-Resistant Coating. It is pricey bit I have found no issues at all.
