Despite its compact, highly portable design, this high-performance telephoto zoom lens covers the image circle of 35mm-format full-frame digital SLR cameras. Since it is designed to be compact and lightweight with a weather-resistant construction, it delivers outstanding imaging performance in a wide variety of applications. With the addition of the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating to the optics, the overall lens coating performance has been optimized. The result is that it delivers sharp, high-contrast images, while minimizing flare and ghost images in backlit situations.
Versatile Telephoto Shooting Supported by Excellent Portability
Despite its outstanding portability, assured by a compact, lightweight body measuring 175 millimeters in length and weighing 819 grams (859 grams with a lens hood), this zoom lens delivers exceptional imaging performance over the entire zoom range. Coupled with a weather-resistant construction which prevents intrusion of water into the lens barrel, it performs superbly in all types of active outdoor photography.
Tele-Macro Shooting Made Easy by Excellent Close-Range Imaging Performance
Thanks to a minimum focusing distance of 0.95 meters and a maximum magnification of 0.32 times, the HD PENTAX-D FA 70-210mm F4ED SDM WR can be used as a telephoto macro lens to expand your freedom of expression. In addition, the lens barrel is designed to be extension-free during autofocusing and zooming operations to keep the overall dimensions intact. When mounted on an APS-C-format camera, the maximum magnification is increased to approximately 0.48 times in the 35mm format. Since it allows you to capture close-up images nearly at half life-size (0.50 times), it will greatly expand the creative freedom of tele-macro photography.
