Pentax SMCP-DA 17-70mm F4 AL IF SDM Lens
Shoot extreme close-ups, mid-distance action shots, and portraits without the bulk of longer lenses. This jack-of-all-trades for the on-the-go photographer provides the highest level of optical quality. It is ideal for the photographer who wants a quality standard zoom lens with extra telephoto performance and a silent SDM autofocus motor.


The smc PENTAX DA 17-70mm features extra zoom for a wide range of shooting applications from wide angle to telephoto.

Bringing together advanced optical technologies, including aspherical elements, this lens is superior in contrast, clarity and edge-to-edge sharpness.

The SDM system incorporated into this lens results in a smoother, quieter autofocusing operation using a built-in supersonic motor.*

The PENTAX-original SP (Super Protect) coating repels dust, water and grease to keep your lens clean and your image quality at its peak.

The PENTAX-original Quick-Shift Focus System allows instant switching from autofocus to manual focus operation.

The focal length is equivalent to 26-107mm in the 35mm format.

Developed specifically for PENTAX digital SLR cameras.

*SDM-only focusing lens can still be used with non-SDM PENTAX DSLR bodies in manual focus mode.
