Lens Description

The Pentax DA 12-24mm F4.0 ED AL (IF) is an ultra-wide to normal zoom designed for cameras with APS-C (1.5X) sensors. This constant-aperture zoom covers a 12mm to 24mm focal range.It provides the same field of view as a 18mm to 36mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This zoom is capable of focusing down to 30cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.12X. 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 to see all current compatible digital cameras: Pentax K mount cameras with APS-C (1.5X) or larger sensor.
