Pentax HD PENTAX-D FA 70-200mm F2.8 ED DC AW Lens Information

Season : New

Brand : Pentax

Code : 21330

The Pentax HD D-FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW is a model of the Pentax Star (*) series, which boasts the highest image quality of all Pentax interchangeable lenses by compensating various aberrations to a minimum. Thanks to its large-aperture design, it provides a large maximum aperture of F2.8 at all focal lengths from 70mm to 200mm.

Coupled with other Pentax-original lens-coating technologies - such as the Aero Bright Coating II assuring exceptionally low reflectance, and the high-grade HD Coating - it produces extra-sharp, high-contrast images free of flare and ghost images, even under demanding lighting conditions such as in backlight. Its dustproof, weather-resistant body also makes it extremely dependable and durable in demanding outdoor conditions.

High-performance Star (*) series lens with large F2.8 maximum aperture

Since the Pentax HD D-FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW provides a large maximum aperture of F2.8 over the entire zoom range, it is ideal for portraiture with beautifully defocused foreground/ background and sports photography demanding high shutter speeds to freeze the action. Its image circle is optimized to cover even the image size of 35mm film format SLR cameras.

State-of-the-art optical technology

This zoom lens is treated with the Aero Bright Coating II - a lens-coating nanotechnology that employs a super-low refractive film fabrication process to assure light reflectance lower than that of the conventional Aero Bright Coating. By coupling this advanced lens coating with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating that reduces an average reflectance in a visible ray spectrum to less than 50% of conventional multi-layer coatings, this lens effectively reduces flare and ghost images to a minimum even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight. In its optics, it also features four super-low dispersion glass elements, two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, and two Super ED glass elements, which have optical properties similar to fluorite and assure lower light dispersion and more effective compensation of chromatic aberration. As the result, this lens produces brilliant, high-contrast images with edge-to-edge sharpness, while effectively compensating chromatic aberration over the entire zoom range.

Dustproof, weather-resistant construction

Developed as an AW (All Weather) model, this zoom lens features a dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction with 13 special seals to prevent the intrusion of water and dust particles into the lens interior. By pairing it with a Pentax weather-resistant digital SLR camera body, it assures a durable, reliable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings - even in rain or mist, or at locations prone to water splashes or spray.

Three-position switch for Quick-Shift Focus System

The lens is equipped with the Quick-Shift Focus System, which allows the user to instantly switch to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera™s AF system. In order to improve its operability, a three-position switch is installed on this lens, allowing instant switching among QFS/A, QFS/M and MF modes. QFS/A is an autofocus-priority mode, which allows the user to switch to manual-focusing operation only when autofocus operation is completed. QFS/M is a manual-focus-priority mode, which enables the user to switch to manual focusing at any time - even when the AF system is in operation. MF mode allows the user to instantly switch to manual focusing with a simple twist of the focus ring on the lens.

Pentax HD D-FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW Lens other features:

  • Smooth, quiet AF operation using a lens-installed AF driving motor.
  • Round-shaped diaphragm to produce a natural, beautiful bokeh (defocus) effect, while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources.
  • Focus range limiter to minimize AF operation time by fixing the focus range to one of three sub-ranges
  • SP (Super Protect) coating to keep the front surface free of dust and stains.
  • Detachable tripod mounting with an antifalling mechanism.
