I have a confession to make. I’ve been a backer of Peak Design starting with the original Capture Clip back in 2012 when they had their first Kickstarter. I got the Capture Clip version 2 when they updated it in 2013. And now in 2017 I backed them again for version 3. And tonight, as of this writing, late December, 2017, is the very first time I’ve ever used it. Ever. Kinda sad huh?

After I got the Pentax K-1 I decided it was time to invest in some of the newly released full frame lenses. The first I got was the Pentax HD Pentax-D FA 24-70mm f/2.8ED SDM WR Lens, a gorgeous bit of kit that I’m happy to put together a “Real World Review” of. This is a big and chunky lens, which is not what Pentaxians are used to with their lovely small and light APS-C lenses, but it’s been the lens that’s on my camera most of the time since I got it, as the 24-70 is the canonical “walk around” lens.

I finally broke down and picked up the Pentax HD D FA 70-200/2.8. I took it out for a quick run today at Chilliwack River where there was a kayak race being held. I thought it would make a really good test of the capabilities of this brand new lens from Pentax. I wanted to share a few quick images and some thoughts from the first few photos before a more extensive real world review is posted.
