This is the first zoom lens in Ricoh Imaging’s Limited Lens series, and features the Pentax high-grade multi-layer High Definition (HD) coating and is the first Limited Lens to feature Ricoh’s durable and dependable weather-sealed construction.
The lens combines Ricoh’s optical technology and premium construction for rich images with exceptional visual description and meticulous finish in every detail.
With a zoom range equivalent of 30.5-61.5 mm, it features rounded diaphragm blades.
At higher aperture numbers, its superior optical design incorporates ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and a proprietary HD coating that delivers clear crisp, high-contrast images free of flare and ghosting, says the company.
It also features a lens-based direct current (DC) focusing motor providing quiet and smooth autofocus functionality.
The HD Pentax-DA 20-40 mm f/2.8-4 ED Limited DC WR lens, available in black or silver, will be available in December at a suggested retail price of $999.99.
