Pros: Colors, construction, blurred, WR

Cons: Yield at the edges, cost

Opinion: This 24-70 is everything you would expect from a standard zoom of its generation. It is based on the optical scheme also used for the Tamron 24-70, which costs less, even half, and is not available with Pentax mount (but does it go?). In this regard, the pentax surcharge is unjustifiable. The rings have a stroke with a constant resistance over the entire length, I really appreciate the fact that the zoom ring is the front one, which allows faster zoom interventions while trying to keep a good frame stability. The optical rendering is generally valid, with some chromatic aberration from time to time and a slight barrel distortion on the lower focal lengths, ordinary administration. In portrait it is very pleasant because it returns beautiful colors and a respectable blur on long focal lengths, as well as well managed even on shorter focal lengths. In the landscape you can see that it makes better in the center even closing the aperture of some stops, on the edges with the 36 megapixels of the K-1 in hyperfocal you almost never get a resolution at the height of the sensor. Good in backlight, limited to the front element that is well ø82mm and therefore more prone to create flare and ghosting. Autofocus not infallible but stable and solid, the times of failed SDM are abundantly over. I would have appreciated a tab on the hood to use more easily a polarizing filter, and some switches of the type AF / MF or additional button, but I assume that they are optional that will be relegated to a possible standard zoom series star future. This, in order not to be a star, remains for the moment the best standard full frame zoom available in Pentax, and actually covers without problems all the situations in which you find yourself using such a lens, reaching or exceeding the sufficiency.

Pros: Construction, materials and tropicalization, lock closed lens.

Cons: Optical yield not really in "Pentax style", price, AF in sharp contrast.

Opinion: I had the chance to buy the lens with the K1. As you can easily understand, both of these products have been designed to be used together, indispensable tools for anyone who wants to make photography something more than a passion. To the touch you can perceive important dimensions (diameter of 82 mm) and a construction that, even for materials, is really top notch. It's tropicalized and the ultrasonic focus engine is silent. It is therefore an overall objective with excellent peculiarities but with some aspects that can be improved. 1 The price: It's a good product, really remarkable when you think it came out earlier than K 1. I believe, however, that the current price is around EUR 200-300 higher than the real value of the optics; 2 Readiness of autofocus in conditions of high contrast, as in the case of a dark subject with a light source behind it: the AF point flows back and forth for a while before "hooking". I have personally remained grounded in the face of this situation, it lacks the incisiveness typical of Pentax; subjects are "pasty and glossy", if the user expects a surgical performance as for other products of the brand. As you can see I did not report the weight (790g); If you want a professional perspective of this level, you have to look at it. I report, for vision, the weight of optics of other brands of the same kind, including the Tamron from which this Pentax product comes, although with a whole series of improvement measures. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM II 805 g; Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Of VC USD G2 905 g; Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 E ED VR 1070 g;

Pros: Excellent image quality, excellent construction, tropicalized

Cons: Heavy and cumbersome, autofocus not lightning, difraction that manifests itself early, price high enough to new

Opinion: There's nothing to say, a very good lens. Sharp the right in the center even at full opening with a soft blur, closing at f/4 becomes sharp on all areas in focus, and at f/5.6 reaches its maximum without decaying too much even to f/16, limit beyond which, however, suddenly begins to show disreaction. In addition to tropicalization, the solid and robust construction of a professional level is appreciated, only the lampshade seems to me a little miserable. On the other hand, it is heavy (more or less like the 200 mm f/2.8) and carrying it around for long sessions is business for sturdy necks (and no cervical problems...). The footprint is also relevant and you need a large bag or backpack to store the camera-lens set. The front lens with a diameter of 82 mm also makes a "basic" kit of filters expensive. The autofocus, once calibrated in-camera, is accurate. Mine suffered from a bit of back-focus, easily solved with fine adjustment. It is not lightning, also because of the weight of the lenses to be moved, but it is very quiet. Finally the price; the quality is all there and you know that the quality you pay, despite this it is not cheap, and from my point of view I think it should cost a good 100-150 euros less. The problem, unfortunately, is that for Pentax full-frame alternatives there are none. Vote 8 full

Pros: Construction, sharpness, weatherproof

Cons: Weight but with the K-1 are well balanced

Opinion: I have this lens for a couple of years now and I have to say that it is an irreplaceable piece of my kit. It covers a wide range of focal lengths and for this it is very versatile. Luminous, it is 2.8 on all focal lengths, and in my opinion it is sufficiently resolvent a bit on all. The bokeh is very pleasant and has a very effective flare resistance. What about, a professional goal.

Pros: Compact, construction, optical yield

Cons:

Opinion: Compact lens with a solid construction against dust and Interperie. The possibility of zoom blocking and a very interesting gem. The yield is good at all openings and at all lengths. It holds the flare well with both artificial light and sunlight. To use with a FF to get the best from this lens. The price is perhaps a bit excessive
