The User's Review: SMC Pentax FA J 28-80 mm 3.5-5.6 AL Zoom Lens and Comparison with FA 28-80 and FA 28-80 AL lenses

This FA J zoom lens was released with the last 35 mm AF SLR camera *ist from Pentax. With this body, Pentax claimed that the kit was the smallest among 35mm AF SLR cameras.

What I like about this FA J zoom lens: the compact size - its diameter is only a few millimeters wider than 58 mm filter.

What I do't like: plastic lens mount, and no aperture ring.

As shown in the following images, yes, this FA J zoom is the smallest among the three brothers of Pentax FA 28-80 although the FA J at full extension (80mm and 0.4m) is longer than the FA AL, the oldest one.

This FA J lens covers a regularly used focus range, but the lens is not common to find. I do not think that you should have one except for collection.
