Additional information:

The SMC Pentax-FA 28-70 mm f/ 4 AL is a standard autofocus zoom lens for film and digital SLR Pentax K cameras.

The optical scheme includes aspherical elements, which is positive for contrast and minimizing aberrations.

The front filter rotates on focusing, which makes it difficult to use gradient and polarizing filters.

Macro scale: 1:4
