Pentax D FA 24-70mm f/2.8 ED WR Lens
A high-performance, interchangeable standard zoom lens for use with PENTAX K-mount digital SLR 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,*1 and provides a maximum aperture of F2.8 over the entire zoom range.
1 : When mounted on a PENTAX K-mount SLR camera body, this zoom lens covers a range from approximately 37mm to 107mm.
Note: This lens is compatible with the cameras below and with Kaf2 mount cameras introduced since the K-3II.

Exceptional imaging 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.
