High-quality image description
Incorporating a hybrid aspherical optical element in its optics, this lens delivers high-quality images with enhanced sharpness and contrast, from minimum focusing distance to infinity, and assures exceptional image-resolving power with outstanding brightness levels even at the edges (even at an open aperture) while effectively compensating various aberrations to a minimum. It is treated with the PENTAX-original Ghostless Coating to minimize the adverse effects of flare and ghost images, assuring true-to-life images even under demanding conditions such as harsh backlighting.
Large maximum aperture
With a maximum aperture of F2.4, this lens offers a bright, clear viewfinder image and allows the photographer to use faster shutter speeds under poor lighting conditions to minimize the risk of camera shake and subject shake.
Compact, lightweight design
