Product Features in Detail

Outstanding image rendition of distant subjects
When mounted on a PENTAX K-mount lens-interchangeable digital camera body, this super-telephoto lens offers an equivalent focal length of approximately 859mm in the 35mm format. Since its unique telescope-type optics requires fewer optical elements than conventional lens optics, it assures sharp, well-defined images, particularly with distant subjects. Also by incorporating two ED (extra-low dispersion) optical elements, it delivers bright, high-resolution images even at the edges, while effectively minimizing chromatic aberration.

New, high-grade HD Coating
This lens is treated with HD Coating,* a high-grade multi-layer lens coating newly developed by PENTAX. Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, this new coating provides higher light transmittance with reduced reflection, to deliver sharp, clear images free of flare and ghost images, even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight.
* HD stands for High Definition, and signifies the lens’s capacity to reproduce images that excel in transparency, definition, resolution and rendition.

Dustproof, weather-resistant construction
As a new model of the AW (All Weather) series, this lens features a dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction with 29 special seals to effectively prevent the intrusion of dust and water into the lens interior. By coupling this lens with a dustproof, weather-resistant PENTAX lens-interchangeable digital camera body such as the PENTAX K-5 or PENTAX K-30, the user is assured of a durable, reliable imaging system that performs superbly in demanding outdoor settings — even in rain or mist, or at locations prone to water splashes or spray.

New exterior design signifying HD series
The lens exterior has been painted an elegant white to minimize heat haze generated inside the lens barrel due to a blazing sun. Featured in the middle of the lens barrel is a red almite ring that serves as a distinct, radiant symbol of the new HD PENTAX lens series. Strap lugs are made from machined aluminium to enhance its exclusive appearance.

Easy control of circular polarizing filter
This lens comes with a built-in, removable filter holder positioned within the barrel. By mounting the C-PL (circular polarizing) filter (40.5mm in diameter; included as an exclusive accessory) to the holder, the user can easily obtain the desired polarizing effect simply by rotating the filter using its control ring.

Super-telephoto lens
When mounted on a PENTAX K-mount digital camera body, this super-telephoto lens offers a focal length of approximately 859mm in the 35mm format.

Painted white to minimize heat haze
The lens exterior is painted an elegant white to minimize heat haze generated inside the lens barrel, and a red ring is featured in the middle of the barrel to serve as a distinct, radiant symbol of the new HD (High Definition) lens series. Strap lugs are made from machined aluminum to enhance its exclusive appearance.

Smooth autofocus
Incorporates smooth autofocus operations using an AF driving motor (DC motor) installed inside the lens barrel. When not installed on a listed K-mount camera body with version 1.30 or later firmware, the focus mode is automatically switched to manual.

SP (Super Protect) coating
SP (Super Protect) coating is applied to the front surface of this lens to effectively repel water and grease, and for easy wipe-off of dust.

Two ED (extra-low dispersion) optical elements
Incorporates two ED (extra-low dispersion) optical elements to effectively reduce chromatic aberration and delivers bright, high-resolution images, even at the edges. This lens also incorporates unique telescope-type optics, which require fewer optical elements than conventional lens optics, and thus greatly improves sharpness and definition of subjects in images, particularly with distant subjects.

29 weather seals
Features a dependable dustproof and weather-resistant construction with 29 special seals to effectively prevent the intrusion of dust and water into the lens interior. With this lens, the user is assured of a durable, reliable imaging system that performs superbly in demanding outdoor settings—even in the rain, or locations prone to water splash.

Built-in, removable filter holder
Includes a built-in, removable filter holder in the barrel. By mounting the C-PL (circular polarizing) filter (40.5mm included as an exclusive accessory) to the holder, the user can easily obtain the desired polarizing effect simply by rotating the filter using its control ring.

Quick-Shift focus system
The Quick-Shift focus system allows for instant switching to manual focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system.

Rounded diaphragm
This lens is designed with a rounded diaphragm to produce a smooth, beautiful bokeh, while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources.
