HD Pentax-D FA
A compact, lightweight standard zoom lens for use with PENTAX K-mount digital SLR cameras. It allows a high resolving power combined with outstanding manoeuvrability to be the perfect partner for the new PENTAX K-1.
Despite its compact, highly maneuverable body, this versatile zoom lens is designed to accommodate the image circle of a large 35 mm full-frame image sensor, thanks to the adoption of state-of-the-art optics and high-performance optical elements. When mounted on the PENTAX K-1 camera body, it delivers high-resolution imaging power, making it an ideal everyday-use lens for this new 35 mm full-frame digital SLR camera.
Standard zoom lens covering most frequently used ranges
This standard zoom lens accommodates the image circle of a 35 mm full-frame image sensor, and covers focal lengths between 28 mm wide angle and 105 mm 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.
DC Motor to assure smooth, quiet and high-speed autofocus operation
High-precision aspherical optical elements, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass optical element and Anomalous-dispersion glass optical element, to deliver bright, sharp images with minimal chromatic and spherical aberrations.
Excellent image description, complementing the full-frame digital SLR Camera
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.

But although I have some reservations about the design, the fact remains that this lens is a top-notch performer and a worthy addition to any Pentax lens bag.
In conclusion, well worth the money. A lovely lens.
Ok, caveat out of the way. :-)
It's a superb lens- light, weatherproof and it allows you to take great photographs. The 'macro' refers to it's ability to take close up shots- you can take astonishingly detailed shots from just a few inches away. Ever missed that amazing looking beetle or spider because you just couldn't focus? Problem solved. It's great for jewellery, crystal and other small, intricate, precious objects. Models- that's as in scale ones, not fashionista clothes horses- are a joy to capture. Under decent light you can see every effect you painstakingly applied in glorious, true life colour (as well as all your worst brush strokes! ;-) ).
Being light and not at all bothered by rain, mist or drizzle makes it a great choice when you're out and about.
And of course, it's beautiful, high quality glass takes lovely portrait shots.
Is it worth the expense? The macro ability is the reason I bought it . I paint 28mm miniatures- standard lenses are a pita for that. They require very powerful lighting and it's awkward to get close to the subject. The high quality glass and the ability to get right up next to the piece allows for better results with less light. It's a much easier, far more pleasant exercise. With space and money constraints it allows for decent results without having to revert to bulky and expensive studio lights. So it definitely improved my photography experience. If macro is your thing, then the ability to swing up and take a snap shot at the myriad little things that you see while walking/rambling is fantastic. You could use light tubes and possibly a portable light source to get similar results, but the ease of use and speed the macro offers is, again, a big improvement to the photography experience. A nice bonus is just how well it adapts to everyday shooting. It's not limited to close shooting, it's just very, very good at it!
Some comments on ease of use. The zoom is fairly quick. There's a manual focus ring on the end to further improve response time, if needed. It's pretty quiet- if your subject is a small animal, that can help. The Pentax pre-focus can get the lens partially focused on trickier subjects, you can manually fine tune it using the ring to get the desired effect. On a weather sealed camera- and most of the Pentax range are- it can be used in almost any conditions. I'm looking forward to playing around with that this winter! The light weight helps in every situation.
It is very expensive. You could get similar results spending a lot less on things like light tubes and high powered torches. But if you can justify the outlay it's money well spent. The improvement to the shooting experience and the ability to concentrate more on composition or even opportunity, rather than set up, makes it an absolute bargain. There's a reason the Pentax buyers love this thing!
