We Love

  • Proof that Pentax are taking the full frame prospect seriously with lenses aimed squarely at those already out there from the established players
  • Large aperture across the whole focal length creates an interesting bokeh effect for portraiture, whilst allowing strong low light performance for sunsets, or indoor shooting
  • Weather resistant, we can only assume that the new full-frame DSLR will feature the same levels of water resistance offered by the cropped sensor models on the market already, Ideal for the nature/sport/outdoor photographers
Reasons to buy from Park Cameras

HD Pentax-D FA 24-70MM F/2.8 ED SDM WR Zoom Lens Summary

Designed as a high-performance, standard zoom lens, the HD Pentax-D FA 24-70MM F/2.8 ED SDM WR is for use with PENTAX K-mount DSLR cameras, providing exceptional imaging power and a large F2.8 maximum aperture.

When mounted on a 35mm-format full-frame digital SLR camera body, this large-aperture standard zoom lens covers a focal-length range from 24mm ultra-wide-angle to 70mm standard and provides a maximum aperture of F2.8 over the entire zoom range. This workhorse range is tried and tested making it one of the most versatile Pentax lenses for any K-mount DSLR.

HD Pentax-D FA 24-70MM F/2.8 ED SDM WR Lens In more detail

Exceptional resolving power

Consisting of 17 elements in 12 groups, the newly designed optics feature three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) optical elements, one anomalous-dispersion-glass aspherical optical element and three aspherical optical elements to accommodate super-high-resolution image sensors. By assuring sufficient light levels even at the edges of the image field and compensating various aberrations to a minimum, it provides a high MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) and delivers well-illustrated, fine-detailed images that are rich in contrast and resolution across the entire image field. When mounted on a current PENTAX K-series camera body, it uses only the central area of the image circle so that it delivers high-resolution images with uniform image description over the entire image field.

Wide-aperture standard zoom lens

When mounted on a 35mm-format full-frame digital SLR camera body, this zoom lens offers a zoom ratio of approximately 2.9 times to cover the ultra-wide-angle to standard ranges (24mm to 70mm in focal length). It provides a maximum aperture of F2.8 over the entire zoom range to deliver brilliant images. It not only covers the focal-length range most frequently used for ordinary subjects, but also provides ultra-wide-angle coverage to produce distinctive visual expressions, such as exaggerated perspectives or extra-wide depths of field, making it very useful with subjects such as sweeping landscapes and shallow indoor scenes. When mounted on a current K-series digital SLR camera body, it provides focal lengths from 37mm to 107mm in the 35mm format to cover wide-angle to medium-telephoto ranges. Since its large maximum aperture not only creates an excellent bokeh (defocus) effect on the background for beautiful portraits, but also allows the photographer to handhold the camera for poorly illuminated subjects, such as sunsets and indoor scenes.

Supersonic Direct-drive Motor (SDM)

Thanks to the incorporation of a new-generation SDM (Supersonic Direct-drive Motor), this zoom lens assures quiet, high-speed autofocus operation, allowing the photographer to react swiftly to all types of subjects.

Weather-resistant design

This lens features a dependable weather-resistant construction with special seals to effectively prevent the intrusion of water into the lens interior. By pairing it with a weather-resistant PENTAX digital SLR camera body, it assures a durable, dependable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings ? even in rain or mist, or in locations prone to water splashing or spray.
