Pentax 16-85 mm lens

Posted on

The HD Pentax-DA 16-85 mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR lens is designed for use with K-mount DSLRs and provides an approximately 5.3X range equivalent to 24.5-130 mm.

This new lens features HD coating, which Ricoh says delivers sharp, clear images reducing the occurrence of flare and ghosting, even under challenging lighting conditions such as backlight. Its weather-resistant construction with 11 seals makes it “remarkably dependable,” preventing water from getting into the lens interior.

The lens has 16 optical elements in 12 groups and features an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) optical element to compensate for chromatic aberrations, and aspherical optical elements to minimize colour bleeding.

It also has smooth, quiet autofocus operation driven by a built-in DC motor.

The HD Pentax-DA 16-85 mm f/3.5-5.6ED DC WR lens will be available in November for a suggested retail price of $799.99.
