The Pentax 24-70mm f/2.8 ED WR DFA is designed specifically for full-frame K mount DSLRs but it is also compatible with APS-C Pentax cameras as well. The lens has a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture for excellent low-light performance throughout the entire zoom range. The 24-70mm is ideal for a wide variety of applications from weddings and portraits to nature and landscape shots, making it the perfect choice for professional photographers who are passionate about their craft.

Versatile, High-Performance Lens

With a versatile 24-70mm focal length range, the lens gives full frame shooters the flexibility to easily shoot a range of different styles of photography, when combined with an APS-C camera body the lens offers an impressive 37-107mm range. At the wide end the lens can be used to frame landscapes and group shots then zoomed in to capture portraits, bringing your subjects closer to fill the frame. This diverse focal range allows you to capture a myriad of photographic opportunities without the need to swap lenses.

Large-Aperture Zoom Lens

Boasting bright f/2.8 constant aperture through the entire zoom range makes the lens ideal for a variety of lighting situations because it can captures more light in darker conditions. This reduces the need for tripods in low-light conditions such as sunsets or indoor applications so you can comfortably shoot handheld. The wide aperture also enables you to create the shallow depth of field required for stunning portraiture while the 9 diaphragm blades create a smooth beautiful bokeh.

Detailed Optical Design with Extra-Low Dispersion Elements

The optical construction of the lens consists of 17 elements arranged in 12 groups that incorporate ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements, aspherical elements and anomalous-dispersion-glass aspherical elements. This advanced optical design allows the lens to deliver well-defined images with rich contrast and resolution across the entire frame, the lens also compensates for chromatic aberrations to deliver incredibly high image quality performance.

High-Definition Multi-Layer Lens Coating

The lens elements are treated with Pentax’s exclusive high-grade, multi-layer High-Definition (HD) coating to ensure the highest light transmittance with reduced reflections compared to conventional multi-layer coatings. The HD coating delivers excellent high-contrast images, free from flaring and ghosting, even in the most challenging backlight conditions.

Quick-Shift Focus System

The Pentax lens features a Quick-Shift Focus System which allows you to instantly adjust the focus of a shot manually after the autofocus system has acquired focus. This gives you the opportunity to fine tune your composition and override the autofocus system by simply rotating the control ring. This focus system provides you with the best of both worlds, fast autofocus with complete responsive manual control.

Supersonic Direct-Drive Motor

Autofocus speed is an important factor to consider when buying a lens, it can make the difference between successfully capturing a spontaneous moment with sharp focus or missing the shot. The Pentax 24-70 has a built-in Supersonic Direct-drive Motor (SDM) that provides smooth and quiet high-speed autofocus (AF) operation.

Weather-Resistant Construction

The Pentax DFA 24-70 mm f/2.8 ED SDM WR lens includes customised seals which prevent water from entering the lens’s interior. The front element is coated with a Super Protect Coating that repels both water and grease. When the lens is combined with the weather-resistant Pentax DSLR camera body, it ensures excellent performance when used in rain, mist or other wet conditions.
