Product Overview

Pentax HD Pentax-D FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW is a telephoto zoom lens for Pentax K-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Pentax in 2015, it has 19 elements in 16 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Pentax-D FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW is externally-zooming. Fortunately, Pentax has provided a zoom lock that at least stops zoom creep. For incremental weathers, Pentax is kind enough to include weather sealing.
As a telephoto zoom lens with a bright maximum aperture, the Pentax-D FA* 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW is well suited for sports and portrait photography. Owners will also like the available tripod collar.
