Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Zoom Lens
Enhanced autofocus and outstanding optical performance.
The weather-resistant Pentax HD DA 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE telephoto zoom lens provides enhanced autofocus (AF) performance and outstanding optical performance in an ultra compact and lightweight package. It provides effective focal lengths between 84.5-460mm when mounted on a Pentax APS-C format digital SLR.
Its design enables quiet, high-speed AF operation in still-image shooting, as well as smooth and quiet AF tracking operation during video recording, with minimal noise created by focus and aperture shifts. Multi-layer HD (high-definition) coated optics deliver bright, high-contrast images free of flare and ghost image, and a minimum focusing distance of 37.4 inches (0.95 meters) expands the range of photographic applications.
With a fully retractable design, it measures only 3.5 inches (89mm) long and weighs less than one pound (442 grams), making it easy to carry around, even for casual shooting. Fully-weather-sealed, this lens is a durable and dependable companion for outdoor shooting -- even in rain, snow or other wet conditions -- when used with one of the many weather-resistant Pentax DSLR's available.
