The three aforementioned lenses constitute the spearhead of Pentax's full frame lenses lineup, for the moment at least. Considering that full frame appeals to enthusiasts and professionals, a group of fast zooms is mandatory.

  • +

    Very good build quality, near star level, AF both fast and reliable, No chromatic aberrations to speak of, Flare generally well controlled, High resolution at all focal lengths in the center and at longer focal lengths on the edges, Pleasing bokeh, Fast aperture

  • -

    Large and heavy, No filter thread, Occasional ghosting, Strong vignetting (can be corrected in-camera or via software), Strong distortion at 15mm not fully corrected in-camera

The Pentax HD D FA 15-30mm F2.8 ED SDM WR is a huge lens, but one that covers an ultra-wide field of view with excellent sharpness, even at f/2.8.

  • +

    Quite sharp. Fixed f/2.8 aperture. Integrated hood. Ultra-wide field of view. Strong close focus capability. Weather-sealed design.

  • -

    Barrel distortion at widest angles. Dim corners. Bulky. Omits filter thread.

The introduction of the new Pentax K-1 full frame camera body means that the range of lenses available had a few gaps that needed filling. As a result, a number of new 35mm-format optics have arrived, including this imposing 15-30mm.

The Pentax D FA 15-30mm f/2.8 ED SDM WR is quite simply a beautiful, sweet lens to use. It is heavy and bulky and not inexpensive, but it delivers a very high standard of performance and maintains that standard equally well at all apertures and focal lengths.

  • +

    High and very even sharpness, Smooth bokeh, Fast silent AF, Weather resistance, Well controlled CA, Excellent flare resistance, Low distortion for an ultra-wide

  • -

    Quite heavy, Expensive

This lens was as expensive as my Pentax camera. Very big and heavy. This is not a lens to use everyday. Excellent picture quality. A superior lens.

way bigger than expected, not complaining though. when I pulled it out of the box I knew right away I had a nice lens. Beautiful tight build. nothing moves that isn't suppose to. smooth focus ring. took it for my first shoot lastnight. very good lens for night time urban shooting.

Even though the lens is on the heavy side. I have found that is tack sharp on photo even when I had hold it. I am very happy with this lens

One of my favorite Pentax FF lenses. Great for a landscape type walk around lens. The weather resistance and image quality was what sold me with this rather than having gone with the cheaper options. I don't see this leaving my K1 very often as it is a very versatile lens.

I haven't had a chance to give this lens a thorough workout yet, but from what I have seen, I really love it. Ultra sharp across the zoom range, great in low light, fast and quiet focusing, and the range at the wide end will make this an awesome addition to my K1 arsenal.
