Pentax-DA series lenses

The smc Pentax-DA lenses can be used exclusively with Pentax digital SLR cameras. Their image circle is specialized for image sensors in Pentax digital SLR cameras and their optical systems are optimized for the characteristics of digital images. The DA lenses are not compatible with film SLR cameras.

The DA lenses do not have an aperture ring. Aperture settings are controlled automatically as if set to the auto "A" position.

When autofocusing is finished, it is possible to make fine adjustments by hand using the "Quick-Shift Focus System".

There are four mounts for the DA lenses, the KAF (with AF coupler), KAF2 (with AF coupler AND supersonic motor), KAF3 (with supersonic motor ONLY), and KAF4 (with electromagnetic diaphragm ONLY).
