This HD Pentax DA 20-40mm f/2.8-4 ED Limited DC WR Lens covers the range from wide angle to medium telephoto and provides a natural perspective that is close to the view of human eye. This 2X lens is suitable for day-to-day use that supports a wide range of photography, including landscapes and portraits.
The black HD Pentax DA 20-40mm f/2.8-4 ED Limited DC WR Lens from Pentax is a high performance standard length zoom lens for K-mount APS-C cameras. Its 35mm focal length equivalency is 30.5-61.5mm providing a versatile and practical range for wide-angle to standard length shooting. It is the first zoom lens in the Pentax Limited Series line and brings with it a durable, weather-sealed body, HD lens coating and an optical design consisting of one ED element and one super-low dispersion element.
The f/2.8-4 maximum aperture enables effective low light shooting and, at the wide-angle end, control over its shallow depth of field for images that place sharp focus on the subject with a pleasing out of focus background. An in-lens direct current (DC) focus motor provides smooth and quiet autofocus action and its Quick-Shift Focus System enables rapid shift from autofocus to manual focus mode.
The lens barrel and the included hood are made from high-grade aluminum alloy, distance and depth of field scales are clearly marked on the barrel and a smooth rotating, knurled ring provides manual focus control. SP (Super Protect) coating on the front and rear lens elements repels dust, water and grease to help maintain peak performance.
This coating reduces the reflection rate up to 50% more than the conventional coating (compared to PENTAX multicoating) for reduced flare and ghosting even under backlighting and other adverse conditions where strong point light sources can enter the lens.
A 9-blade, round iris diaphragm is used. This enables natural reproduction of illumination and other scenes and softer out-of-focus (bokeh) effects for making the subject stand out more prominently from the background.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass and Anomalous Dispersion Glass are used to minimize color blurring over the entire zoom range and even at the edges of the image for providing superior resolution.
For the first time, the Limited series now uses a DC motor inside the lens barrel for providing a focusing mechanism. Compared to body AF, this focusing mechanism provides a quieter drive sound and smoother AF operation.
Photography when exposed to water or sudden rainfalls A weather-resistant construction is used for overcoming adverse conditions. The focus ring and zoom ring also have a weather-resistant design for preventing the entry of water.
The lens barrel, cap, and hood use a machined aluminum material. You will feel the presence and elegance of the Limited series whenever you look at or touch this lens
