This lens has a focal length equivalent to 153mm in the 35mm film format. The FREE (fixed rear element extension) focusing system is used to minimize ghosting and flare and provide clear, high-quality images from the infinity end to macro distances. Closeups up to a maximum of 1:1 (1X) are possible.
A new round iris diaphragm is used from open to F5.6. This reduces the beams of light when shooting point light sources for enabling a more natural out-of-focus (bokeh) effect.
A SP (super protect) coating is used on the front lens for repelling water and oils to enable shooting with peace of mind even in outdoor environments.
This lens uses a simple drip-proof construction for preventing water from getting inside the lens. Combined with PENTAX digital SLR cameras also using a drip-proof construction enables use in rainy or foggy conditions, or other locations exposed to water for enhanced durability and reliability.
