Pentax D FA 24-70mm F2.8 ED SDM WR
The Pentax D FA 24-70mm F2.8 ED SDM WR is a large aperture standard zoom lens. Thanks to the 'large-aperture design' this lens features an F2.8 diaphragm throughout the range of 24mm to 70mm and has a beautiful bokeh. This makes the lens ideal for portraits, but this versatile lens is truly a real all-rounder.
Combined with various PENTAX-developed lens coating technologies, little reflections are guaranteed. The high-quality HD coating provides extra sharp high-contrast images free of flare and ghosting, even with tricky lighting conditions such as backlight. In addition to the three aspherical elements and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, the lens also contains an aberrant dispersion aspheric glass element to minimize chromatic aberration across the entire zoom range, providing a high image quality.
The five seals protect the Pentax D FA 24-70mm F / 2.8 against dust and water. Combined with a PENTAX WR body, you can even shoot in harsh weather conditions such as rain or fog and totally rely on your equipment.
SDM (Supersonic Direct-drive Motor)
The new PENTAX Supersonic Direct-drive motor makes for a quiet, high-speed autofocus. This allows you as a photographer, to easily and quickly switch between various subjects.

Great Mid Zoom
This lens is outstanding, if its heavy its because its well constructed with high grade glass etc. There is little vignetting at f2.8, other mid focal stops will clear that, the images are sharp and colours well banned. I've used Nikon in the last 10 years, but now have switched to Pentax, and I've found Pentax K-1 to be a more intuitive and ergonomically better, and simple manual controls to use. With the D FA 24-70mm attached is a pleasure to use. Remember Pentax had concentrated on APS-C lenses for nearly 15 years and they had developed this lens with the other two D FA 15-30mm and D FA 70-200mm full frame lenses to compliment the K-1. I like the focus ring and zoom ring rubber grips, and the smooth and noiseless when in operation. Pentax has design this lens around the K-1, so they are serious about digital full frame long term; this lens will last a lifetime, especially with its weather resistance. If you've got a Pentax K-1, buy this lens you won't regret it for mid zoom work.|
