Pentax HD D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW Lens
A new standard in the ultimate image quality.
Pentax is ushering in the next generation of high performance camera lenses with the Pentax HD D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW Lens. This large-aperture, prime lens delivers stellar imaging performance and maximum light transmission -- the hallmarks of the acclaimed Star series line -- and is the perfect companion to any K-mount digital SLR camera.
In addition to the initial design concepts of optimum image quality and large apertures for maximum light transmission, Pentax premium-quality Star-series lenses have embraced the additional concepts of exceptional toughness and outstanding operability, achieved through the development of a dustproof, weather-resistant lens housing. The resulting lenses provide superior dependability in wide range of shooting conditions.
This lens delivers exceptional resolving power from the center to the edges of the image field, even when set to open aperture. It incorporates state-of-the-art Pentax-developed lens coating technologies -- including the new Aero Bright Coating II for exceptionally low reflectance and high-grade high-definition (HD) Coating -- that enable it to produce extra-sharp, high-contrast images free of flare and ghost images. The lens's dustproof, weather-resistant body also makes it extremely dependable and durable for shooting in demanding outdoor conditions.
New-generation, high-performance Star-series lens with large F1.4 maximum aperture:
State-of-the-art optical technology:
By coupling this advanced lens coating with the high-grade, multi-layer HD (high definition) Coating, average reflectance in the visible ray spectrum is reduced to less than 50% compared to conventional multi-layer coatings. As a result, the lens effectively reduces flare and minimizes ghost images even in demanding lighting conditions, such as backlighting. The lens incorporates three super-low dispersion glass elements and one aspherical element to effectively compensate for chromatic and spherical aberrations, enabling it to produce brilliant, high-contrast images with edge-to-edge sharpness. Since distortion is minimized even at a focusing distance of approximately one meter, the lens produces crisp, distortion-free images over the entire focusing range, from the minimum focusing distance to infinity.
