Pentax D FA 50mm f/2.8 Macro Overview

The Pentax smc P-D FA Macro 50mm f/2.8 is designed to be extremely compact and lightweight, compared to conventional macro lenses. The drastic downsizing and weight reduction were achieved through the development of compact, high-performance optical elements and the incorporation of durable yet lightweight exterior components.

This lightweight macro lens features an image circle to accommodate up to 35mm format and offers close-up to 1:1 life-size magnification.

The smc P "D" lens series is designed to optimize image quality in both digital SLR and film photography. Improvements include optimized lens coating along with curvature and positioning of optical elements. In particular, flare and ghost images - the most disturbing factors in digital SLR photography - have been reduced to minimum for clear, high-quality digital images.

Close focus capability of 7.7" (19.5 cm)
Built-in focus-clamp mechanism to fix focus at any distance
Metallic lens mount for extra durability

question

Does this lens work with the Pentax K-70?
Asked by: Anonymous
It should for sure. And as others pointed out a great lens in optical terms (built quality is ok but not more) for that value that works as well as macro as for portray on APS-C. A in depth review can be found here http://www.photozone.de/pentax/906-pentax50f28macro And as others said - it is full frame so if one day you feel like buying K-1 you can use it.

question

I spoke with a sales associate with B & H before buying this Macro 50mm lens for my K-7 and was assured it would work. Current lens is a 50 - 200 mm zoom which works great, just not as a general purpose lens. I removed the current lens and attached the new lens. I cannot go to live view, the lens is not communicating with the K-7, nothing works with the camera. Did I miss something about using this lens or do I have a defective product? So far, I am very disappointed with my purchase.
Asked by: Barry O.
If the lens works on the K5, the lens is fine. The lens may not be fully compatible with the K7.

Thanks for your answer. I think that before buying this lense, I will try a vintage manual macro 50 mm lense.
