The HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm F3.5-5.6 ED DC WR plays an important role in the Pentax full-frame zoom lineup. First and foremost, it's a compact yet versatile walkaround lens perfect for photographers who wish to travel light and still have access to a high-performance all-in-one lens.

The new 35mm-format or “full frame” Pentax K-1 is now with us, and here we have the HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR standard zoom to go with it. This is the least expensive of the kit options and also the lightest and most compact of the initial batch of full frame zoom lenses.
I wanted a digital zoom lens for my new K-1, having only older FA limited lenses and not wanting to shell out almost the same amount as I did on the camera. It focuses very quiet and fast, it takes good pictures outdoors, as stated buy another review, get the DA F 24-70 f2.8 if you plan to do any...
This is a very good lens for traveling. The zoom range allows for both wide-angle panoramas and close-ups on the go. At f8 - f11 apertures the sharpness is more than decent so it's basically a day lens, although on a tripod by night or when using a ND filter it also delivers.
Whether you're using it on a current APS-C Pentax or the new full frame K-1, you'll find the Pentax 28-105 to be very satisfying across the range, corner to corner and dead center. It's surely one of the better 28-105 lenses that have been produced over the years and miles ahead compared to most kit...
I bought this lens with the K-1 and have been very happy with the picture quality. Up until recently, kit lenses were of lower quality and people viewed them as good entry level purchases.
I bought this to use as a general purpose , walk around lens. It fits the bill perfectly. Great image as well as build quality. I was considering the 24 ~ 70. I am extremely happy with my choice . I use this lens with a Pentax K1-II.
This is a great lens. This is actually my 2nd lens my first one fell over on the tripod and hit head on. It still worked, the the zoom ring was a little stiff to rotate. It's nice and clear and a great all around lens.
i was between dfa 24-70 and dfa 28-105. i tried both but finaly i went with dfa 28-105 for its versatill and of sure for the price. the lens is sharp even at 28 mm and very sharp at 70 mm. it is my walk around lens and for this reason it is on the camera all most the time.
Excellent walk-around lens for K1. Color rendition is great, small size, light weight and works well with my Nisi filter system. It just doesn't make sense to me people spends premium price on similar items on other brands. Go Pentax !
I use it for routine photo outings, hiking, and trekking. Lightweight & Weatherproof, so good for hiking and trekking. It could be wider at the lower end and longer at the upper end but considering the light weight it is a very nice lens to have. Much lighter than the better Pentax 24-70
Superb walk around lens. I use it on a Pentax K1 and edge to edge sharpness at various focal lengths is good to excellent, although not quite in the class of prime lenses. Highly recommended, especially for travel photography.
