Pentax D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro Lens
The Pentax D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro is a short telephoto prime designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This bright prime has a 100mm focal-length.
This prime can focus down to 30cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 1X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. While this lens is capable of AF, it does not have a built-in focus motor. It can only focus with a compatible camera body which features a mechanical AF-coupling.
This lens is only available for Pentax K. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Pentax K mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors.
