HD Pentax D-FA 150-450mm F4.5-F5.6 Review Posted
High-performance full frame telephoto zoom lens
By bdery in Review Announcements on Jun 22, 2017
We reviewed the HD Pentax-D FA 150-450mm F4.5-5.6 ED DC AW on APS-C back in 2015, before the launch of the Pentax K-1 full frame camera. Today we are proud to present an updated version of this review, presenting a defailed performance analysis on full frame. This completes our series of reviews of the current D FA zoom lineup.
The 150-450mm is currently the longest zoom available new for Pentax DSLRs, and has the second longest focal length overall. It has a variable aperture, an extremely rugged, all weather design, a 3x zoom range and an impressive array of external controls. We had been impressed by the lens's capabilities on APS-C. Read our review to find out how this new lens fared in our full frame tests!
Price Alert! As of the writing of this post, this lens is retailing at just $1995 in the US— the lowest price we've seen in over a year.
