PRECAUTION AND LENS MAINTENANCE
= Leaving the camera in direct sunlight without
covering the lens with the lens cap, may dam-
age to the inside of the camera.
When storing the lens in a case, attach the
front and rear lens caps supplied with the lens
to protect it from dust and scratches.
« After removing the lens from the camera body,
be sure to place the lens with its front side
down to keep it from rolling or falling.
» Moisture can cause serious damage to optical
glass elements - the nucleus of your lens. Avoid
storing the lens where temperature and humid-
ity are high, as this may cause mildew. Keep
your lens in as dry a place as possible.
If you do not expect to use the lens for an
extended period, store it in the case with a des-
iccant. It is also recommended that the lens
occasionally be taken out of the case and
placed in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place to
avoid the possibility of damage due to conden-
sation build-up.
Use a blower or lens brush to remove dust or
fingerprints collected on the lens. If the lens
becomes dirty, remove the dirt particles with a
blower brush, then wipe it off with a clean cot-
ton cloth or tissue paper moistened with lens
cleaning solution. Wipe in a spiral pattern from
the center to the outside.

The Pentax FA lenses are primarily designed to
work with the Pentax autofocus SLA (Karz- or
KarF-mount camera), making autofocus shooting
possible. When Pentax FA Power Zoom lenses
are used in combination with the same of the
Z-series cameras the camera features a Power
Zoom System. (Please verify your operating
manual of the camera).
CAUTION:
Be careful not to damage or dirty the lens infor-
mation contacts and AF coupler on the mount
surfaces of the camera and lens, which may
result in failure or malfunction. If this occurs, wipe
the contacts gently with a clean, dry cloth.
« The FA zoom lenses without
the power zoom contacts are
shown in the illustration do not

« Do not damage or dirty the
power contacts.
Power zoom contacts
« When using the FA zoom lens on the Karz-
mount Pentax camera for autofocus shooting,
the focusing ring automatically returns to the eo
position after the power is turned off.
« When using the FA lens with a K-mount Pentax
camera having no information contacts, be sure
to set the lens aperture ring to any f-stop other
than A. If set to the “A” position, the lens will
automatically be set to the minimum aperture,
causing improper exposure.

SMC PENTAX-A LENSES
The "A" (Auto) setting on the SMC Pentax-A lens
is used when the lens is used with a Pentax-KA-
mount camera in its Programmed AE mode, etc.
This setting, however, cannot be used with a
Pentax K-mount camera ( LX, K1000,etc.).
« When using the K-mount lens with a Ka-mount
camera, set the camera to the Aperture-priority
AE Mode or Metered Manual Mode.
« When using the Ka-mount lens with a KarFz- or
KAF- mount camera (autofocus camera), auto-
focus function does not operate.

K-mount lens does not have the lens-information
contacts.
LENS ATTACHMENT AND REMOVAL
1. To mount the lens on the camera, align the red
indexes on the lens and camera (see © and @)
and turn the lens clockwise until the lens seats
with a click.
2. To remove the lens, turn the lens counterclock-
wise while pressing the lens-lock-release but-
ton on the camera body.
FOCUSING
— MF
~ AF
To set the autofocus mode on your Autofocus
camera ( Karz- or KaF-mount camera ), slide the
focus mode switch to the AF (autofocus) position.
See the Operating Manual of your camera.
« During autofocus, do not touch the focusing
ring of the lens as this will interfere with proper
lens movement.
To set the manual focus mode, slide the focus
mode switch on your camera to the MF (manual
focus) position. In the MANUAL focus mode, you
can focus the lens by turning the focusing ring
and confirming the Fl signals < through the
viewfinder.
s When using FA lens with the non-Karz- or KaF-
mount camera body, focus the lens by turning
the focusing ring.
To set the aperture to “A” (Auto), align the aper- * When using a K-mount camera having no lens

ture to any other f-stop, turn the aperture ring to
the left while pushing the aperture-A lock button.
F-STOP OR F-NUMBER AND CLICK STOPS
There is a white dot next to the maximum
f-number engraved on the lens's aperture ring on
many Pentax lenses. This white dot indicates an
aperture which is darker by one stop (larger num-
ber). The illustration below shows the white dot
next to 14.5 is 1/5.6.
The click-stops between two engraved f-stops are
equivalent to intermediate f-stops. Some lenses
do not have an intermediate click f-stop on the
aperture ring due to limited space between the f-
numbers engraved on the aperture ring.

LENS HOOD
Pentax lens hoods come in
round and square shapes,
while others are built into the
lens. Make sure to use the
proper size lens hood spe-
cially designed for your lens.
Notes:
When the lens hood is fit-
ted on the front of the lens,
do not use the built-in flash
on your Karz- or Kar-
mount camera, as it may
obstruct the path of the
light coming from the flash,
causing vignetting in the
picture corners.
A lens hood cannot be
attached to the F Fish-Eye

How to Use the Round Hood
The round hood screws into the front of the lens.
s The FA24mm 2, FABSmm f/1.4, FA200mm
12.8, FA300mm 14.5 and FA400mm 1/5.6
require special lens hoods (see pages 31 and
33).
« A round type rubber hood can be folded when
not in use.
* When the hood is in use for any lenses, do not
use the built-in flash on your camera because
the flash light is blocked by the hood.
How to Use the Built-in Hood
To use a lens with a built-in hood, first extend the
hood to the fullest position. The 600mm f/4 lens
and 250-600mm f/5.6 zoom lenses come in
screw-fixed-type. Extend these hoods while rotat-
ing them for use. See the lens instruction manual
for details.

Precautions on Filters
« A filter, when attached to your lens, becomes
part of the optical system. Handle it as careful-
ly as you do the lens. Avoid using two filters in
combination, with the exception of the polariz-
ing filters, as a deterioration in image quality
may result.
Using a filter on the FA Zoom 28-70mm lens at
close shooting distance with the focal length
setting wider than 35mm may cause vignetting
in the picture corners.
« À filter cannot be attached to the A Fish Eye
16mm {/2.8, F Fish-Eve Zoom 17-28mm and À
15mm f/3.5 lenses.
Circular Polarizing Filter and Vignetting
When attaching a circular polarizing filter on Karz-
or KAF- mount camera, be sure to use the filter
alone. A circular type polarizing filter consists of
two glass elements, and is thicker than an ordi-
nary filter. For this reason, using the circular type
on a lenses as shown on the table below may
cause vignetting in the picture corners.

available in the PENTAX-range.
Built-in filters
The table below indicates what lenses come with
what built-in filters. As illustrated here, the white
dot on the filter ring indicates “neutral”(transpar-
ent glass) and it should be aligned with index
when no filter is required. No other filters can be
fitted on the front rim of the lenses shown in the
table. To change filters, just turn the filter ring and
align the index with the name of the filter you wish
to use.

Attaching gelatine filters
The Fish-Eye 16mm f/2.8 and Shift 28mm f/3.5
accept a gelatine filter on their lens mounts. With
the 16mm lens, unfold the ring-shaped frame off
the magnet, then place the cut-out gelatine filter
on the lens mount and fold the frame back to the
original position, as shown in the top illustration.
With the 28mm lens, insert a gelatine filter
beneath the gelatine filter retainer on the lens
mount, as shown in the bottom illustration.
* Use only one gelatine filter.

Some Pentax FA zoom lenses are “two-touch”
type; they have separate focusing and zooming
rings. Set the desired focal length by turning the
power zoom ring. Changing the focal length by
turning the power zoom ring means that the
focusing point may shift slightly. After zooming to
your desired focal length, make sure the image is
in focus by using the focus indication (Focus indi-
cator) in the viewfinder before releasing the shut-
ter.

Some models of the Z-Series in combination with
FA Power Zoom lenses, feature the following
capabilities (these functions don't work with
cameras of the MZ-series!)
(1) Image Size Tracking
(2) Zoom Clip
(3) Zoom Effect
The Auto Zoom switch and Zoom Set button are
used to select and set the Auto Zoom function: the
Auto Zoom switch has three positions:
P (Power Zoom) = Set to this position when
using the Power Zoom function,
A (Auto Zoom) = Set to this position when
using the Auto Zoom function.
AS (Auto Zoom Set) = Set to this position
when selecting the type of Auto Zoom
Funciton.
« When an FA Power zoom lens is used on the
Karz-mount Pentax camera, the following func-
tions work when the main switch is turned off.
(1) When the lens is used as power zoom, the
lens will automatically zoom to the focal length
setting at which the lens's length becomes
smallest.
(2) When the autofocus function is in use, the
focusing ring will move to the == position.

on the lefi-hand side of the white-bar index
serves as an index to align an f-stop other than A
when shooting at a longer focal length. For exam-
ple, when using the Zoom 28-80mm lens and
wishing to set the aperture to 1/8 with the focal
length at 80mm, align “8" on the aperture ring with
this dot.

HOW TO USE THE INFRARED INDEX
When taking infrared pictures with infrared film
and either a "R2" or “O2” filter, it is necessary to
adjust the focus because the point of focus is not
the same with infrared light as it is with visible
light. As shown above, note the focusing point on
the lens distance scale when viewed through the
viewfinder and then turn the focusing ring until the
point vou noted aligns with the infrared index.

Infrared Index of the Zoom Lens
When taking infrared photographs with a zoom
lens, the amount of focus compensation neces-
sary depends on the focal length setting of the
zoom lens. The distance scale on the zoom lens
has infrared indexes for each focal length. As
shown in the figure, the distance scale of the
zoom lens has infrared indexes for each focal
length. Compensate for the focus according to the
focal length in use (see page 22).
With lenses having indexes only for the longest
and shortest focal length, such as FA Zoom 70-
200mm, obtain the compensation value for inter-
mediate focal length by using the scale as a guide.

MACRO LENS
Focus-range limiter
Pentax 50mm {2.8 and 100mm {2.8 FA Macro lenses
focus from infinity down to life size (1X). The FA 100mm
ff2.8 lens is equipped with focus range limiter to control
the focusing range. It has an approx. 0.57m (1/4X) to
0.31m (1X) focusing range on the close-distance side;
from infinity to approx. 0.63m on the long-distance side.
Make the best use of this convenient range limiter accord-
ing to the camera-to-subject distance.
* When the focus-range limiter is set to the "MANUAL
position, you can focus the lens manually.

Magnification Scale
The magnification is indicated by denominators
on the distance scale. "5" indicates “1/5X". When
determining a set magnification, first set the mag-
nification in the MANUAL focus mode and then
adjust the position of the camera by moving the
camera closer or further from the subject.
phy, when using a
copy stand, or in any situation where the lens is
pointing down, turn the clamp screw to the ON
position. The rotation of the focusing ring
becomes tighter, helping to prevent the rotation
of the focusing ring due to the lensis own weight
and to avoid any shift in focus.
* When shooting in the autofocus mode, turn the
clamp screw to the OFF position. Activating the
autofocus mode while the clamp screw is in the
ON position slows down the focusing speed.
For normal use, turn the clamp screw to the

Focus-Range Limiter
When you set the knob on the focus-range limiter
at “LIMIT” with the distance scale set at es, the
focus range is set to the long distance side (nor-
mal photography), and when you do the same
with the distance scale set at the minimum focus
distance, the focus range is set to the close-dis-
tance side (macro shooting). To clear the setting
of the focus-range limiter, set the knob to “FULL”.
26
-
®
When the magnification scale is set near 4
(1/4X), the focus range limiter knob may not
turn.
With a KaF2- mount camera, when the focus-
range limiter is set at MANUAL (MF position),
manual focus is possible even if the autofocus
mode is set on the camera.
With a KaF2-mount camera, when the focus-
range limiter is set at MANUAL (MF position),
the shutter cannot be released unless the focus
indication appears in the viewfinder, if the cam-
era is set to the autofocus mode (AF single
mode).
When these macro lenses are used on the KAF-
mount camera, the built-in flash does not fire.
TELEPHOTO LENSES
Holding Telephoto Lenses
Telephoto lenses are longer than standard lens-
es. When using telephoto lens, take care to pre-
vent camera shake, which may result in blurred
pictures. Proper camera/lens holding is the way to
avoid camera shake. Hold the focusing ring
securely with your left hand, and support the cam-
era by pressing it to vour face.
Minimum shutter speed for unblurred pictures
When you are hand-holding your camera, the
surest way to prevent blur is to select a high shut-
ter speed. You can determine a comparatively
safe shutter speed simply by checking the focal
length of your lens. When you use a 135mm tele-
photo lens, select a speed faster than 1/135 sec.
With a 200mm lens, use 1/200 sec. or faster, etc.
As zoom lenses are longer and heavier than sin-
gle focal length lenses, particular attention should
be paid to shutter speed. However, if your hands
and your grip are steady, you may be able to take
unblurred pictures at slower speeds. When you
have to use a relatively slow shutter speed, stabi-
lize your camera/lens combination with a tripod.

FA™ 300mm f/4.5 lens has a focusing ring which
provides autofocus and manual focus setting.
Push the focusing ring or pull it towards you to set
the autofocus or manual focus mode respectively.
When used on the Kar2-mount camera, the man-
ual focus mode is set by setting the manual mode
on the lens even if the autofocus mode is set on
the camera.
When the lens is set to the manual focus position
and the focusing ring is fully rotated to the right or
left to manually focus the lens, it will keep rotating
as no stoppers are provided at the es (infinity) or
shortest distance positions.
« When the focusing ring on the lens is set to the
autofocus position, the focusing ring is locked.
e When used on the KAF-mount camera, set the
same focus mode on the camera and lens.
When the camera is set to the autofocus mode
(AF single) and the lens to manual focus mode,
the shutter cannot be released unless the focus
indication appears in the viewfinder.
Note on = (infinity) Mark (except the 85mm
f/1.4 lens)
The focusing ring of the telephoto lens stops
slightly past the == mark. This is because temper-
ature change causes the focusing point to shift,
making the lens focus on a point past the « mark.
Even when shooting at infinity, be sure the image
is in focus utilizing the focus indicator before
releasing the shutter.

When the lens is set to manual focus position
and the focusing ring is fully rotated to the right
or left to manually focus the lens, it will keep
rotation as no stoppers are provided at the es or
shortest distance positions.
When the focusing ring on the lens is set to the
autofocus position, the focusing ring is
released, allowing a full 360° rotation and pro-
viding a click stop at each 30° turn.
When used on the KAF-mount camera, set the
same focus mode on the camera and lens.
When the camera is set to the autofocus mode
(AF single) and the lens to the manual mode,
the shutter cannot be released unless the focus
indication appears in the viewfinder.
When used on the non-KAF2- or Kar-mount

Notes:
« Be sure that the PL filter window cap is in place
if no polarizing filter or circular polarizing filter is
used.
If strong light is entering the PL filter window,
either attach the PL filter window cap or reverse
the position of the PL filter window (to top or
bottom of lens). Strong light entering the PL
filter window will defeat the effect of the lens
hood and prevent the taking of clear, sharp
images.
Vignetting will occur when using a polarizing
filter or a circular polarizing filter at 20 mm focal
length, and the camera-to-subject distance is
about 0.3 m.
PRECAUTIONS WHEN THE FLASH IS USED
Built-in Flash
With the built-in flash in popped-up position, the
flash can be used if no warning indication
appears when the shutter release button is
depressed halfway down. However, some lenses
cause vignetting in the picture corners, even
though warning indication does not appear; some
do not, though the warning indication appears.
For more on this, see page 36 and 37.
« Remove the lens hood when the built-in flash is
used because the flash light will be blocked by
the lens hood.
PENTAX DEDICATED EXTERNAL FLASH
When the FA* 28-70mm f/2.8 AL lens is
attached
« When the Pentax dedicated external flash is
used with the FA 28-70mm lens, do not use the
hood because the flash light will be blocked by
the hood.
COMPATIBILITY OF LENSES WITH THE BUILT-IN FLASH
[ О = compatible X = incompatible because of vignetting ]
*1 Vignetting will occur with SF series, Z-1/PZ-1 and Z-10/PZ-10 camera.
*2 Vignetting will not occur. But when using the SF series camera, the flash will not be discharged.
*3 When using SF series, Z-1/PZ-1 or Z-10/PZ-10 camera, vignetting will occur at focal lengths between
28 to 38mm. When using Z-1r/PZ-1p camera, vignetting will occur at focal length 28mm if the camera-
to subject distance is closer than 1m.
*4 Vignetting will occur at focal lengths between 28-35mm. With the focal length set at 35mm, it will occur
when the camera-to-subject distance is closer than 3m. With the focal length set at 40mm, it will occur
when the camera-to-subject distance is closer than 1m. Vignetting will not occur at focal lengths from
50mm through telephoto
*5 Vignetting will occur at focal lengths between 28-70mm.
*6 Vignetting will occur at focal lengths between 80-135mm.
*7 Vignetting will not occur if the camera-to -subject distance is greater than 0.7m, even if the inappro-
priate lens warning is blinking. The flash will not discharge when using the lens wider than 35mm or
with the macro lens attached to SF series cameras.
*8 Vignetting will occur at focal lengths between 28-35mm. With the focal lengths set at 35mm, it will
occur when the camera-to-subject distance is closer than 1.5m.
*9 Vignetting will occur at focal lengths between 80-90mm.
