HD PENTAX-D FA 28-105mmF3.5-5.6ED DC WR
A compact, lightweight standard zoom lens: high resolving power combined with outstanding maneuverability to be the perfect partner for PENTAX full-frame digital SLR cameras
Despite its compact, highly maneuverable body, this versatile zoom lens is designed to accommodate the image circle of a large full-frame image sensor, thanks to the adoption of state-of-the-art optics and high-performance optical elements. When mounted on PENTAX 35mm full-frame digital SLR cameras, it delivers high-resolution imaging power as an ideal everyday-use lens.

- Standard zoom lens covering most frequently used ranges
- This standard zoom lens accommodates the image circle of a 35mm full-frame image sensor, and covers focal lengths between 28mm wide angle and 105mm medium telephoto. By incorporating the latest optics and a number of high-performance optical elements, it retains a sufficient brightness level even at edges of the image field, while effectively compensating for various aberrations. It delivers high-resolution images by optimizing the imaging power of PENTAX 35mm full-frame digital SLR cameras. Its compact, lightweight body and excellent cost performance make this lens a perfect regular lens.
- Excellent image description, complementing the full-frame digital SLR camera performance
- In its 15-element, 11-group optics, this zoom lens incorporates two high-precision aspherical optical elements, one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass optical element and one anomalous-dispersion glass optical element, to deliver bright, sharp images with minimal chromatic and spherical aberrations. Since its optics is designed to assure ample resolving power for the large, high-pixel image sensor, it produces well-defined, fine-detailed images.
- HD Coating to improve image description
- This lens is treated with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating.* Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, this PENTAX-original coating assures higher light transmittance and less reflection to deliver bright, high-contrast images that are free of flare and ghost images, even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight.
* HD stands for High Definition.
- Quick-Shift Focus System
- This PENTAX-developed system allows for flawless, delay-free switching from autofocus to manual-focus operation, after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system.
- Weather-resistant construction
- This lens features a dependable weather-resistant construction with eight sealing parts to effectively prevent the intrusion of water into the lens interior. Paired with a weather-resistant PENTAX digital SLR camera body, it creates a durable, dependable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings — even in rain or mist, or in locations prone to water splashing or spray.
- Other features
- ・SP (Super Protect) Coating applied to the front surface of the lens to effectively repel water and grease.
・Rounded diaphragm to produce a smooth, beautiful bokeh (defocus) effect, while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources.
・Built-in DC motor to assure smooth, quiet, high-speed autofocus operation
- 【MTF Chart】
- Geometric optics MTF (MTF calculated without referencing the effects of light diffraction phenomenon)
- Wave optical MTF (MTF calculated referencing the effects of light diffraction phenomenon)
Spatial Frequencies S:Sagittal M:Meridional 10 lines/mm 30 lines/mm
Since it is impossible to avoid light diffraction phenomenon on the actual lens, wave optical MTF is more realistic.
However, geometric MTF is appropriate if you want to compare only the effects of geometric aberration correction on MTF.
