The Pentax smc P-D FA Macro 50mm f/2.8 is designed to be extremely compact and lightweight, compared to conventional macro lenses. The drastic downsizing and weight reduction were achieved through the development of compact, high-performance optical elements and the incorporation of durable yet lightweight exterior components. This lightweight macro lens features an image circle to accommodate up to 35mm format and offers close-up to 1:1 life-size magnification. The smc P D lens series is designed to optimize image quality in both digital SLR and film photography. Improvements include optimized lens coating along with curvature and positioning of optical elements. In particular, flare and ghost images have been reduced to minimum for clear, high-quality digital images.
Offers 1:1 image magnification for true-to-life macro photography.
Aperture ring for traditional aperture control or automatic body-controlled depth of field.
Large lens hood to shield the lens surface from excessive incident light.
The PENTAX-original Quick-Shift Focus System allows instant switching from autofocus to manual focus operation.
Full-frame lens is optimized for digital photography, including lens coating, curvature and positioning of optical elements.
Developed for PENTAX digital SLR cameras, however full-frame optics are also compatible with PENTAX film SLR cameras.?
