Bit of a stupid question...

    Bit of a stupid question, but search as I might I cannot find any info as to if there is a Pentax version of Nikons 24-70mm f2.8.

    I know Pentax does not currently have a full frame body, but was there a top quality full frame version, maybe from the days of film?

    Many thanks in advance :)

    There was a 28-70f4 AL, constant aperture and surprisingly good, not megabucks at the time and probably still not.

    I don't recall Pentax ever having a 24-70/2.8 lens, albeit AF or MF, and, as mentioned above, there is the 28-70/4 and in the 24 zoom range they came out with a 24-90 with the MZ-S camera and, if memory serves, it was a 3.5/4.5 lens.

    EDIT: also, there was the Tamron 28-105/2.8 Adaptall mount ... if ya don't mind "not quite as wide and a wee bit longer" :)

    There was also an FA*28-70 f2.8, never actually seen one though.

    I have the SMC Pentax FA 28-105 f/4-5.6 power zoom that came as standard with my Z1-p. It is a fantastic lens and I can thoroughly recommend it IF you can find one. I have never seen it anywhere s/h.

    Being a Film lens, it has excellent chromatic aberration correction and is very sharp with good contrast. It is a trifle too long though on an APS-C.

    I am just waiting to try it on the Pentax FF dslr, when they eventually get around to building it. :confused:
