Pentax DA 16-85mm f3.5-5.6 ED DC WR Camera Lens

The HD PENTAX DA 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR is optimized to provide premium performance for use on PENTAX K-mount digital SLR cameras. Catering to the needs of the photographer, this lens provides a high zoom ratio of approximately 5.3 times to cover focal lengths from 16mm ultra-wide-angle to 85mm medium-telephoto for lengths equivalent to 24.5mm to 130mm (in the 35mm format). This versatile zoom lens comes in handy for a wide variety of scenes and subjects, including sweeping landscapes and cramped rooms. Equipped with the PENTAX-exclusive, HD coating, this lens is sure to offer sharp, clear images even under challenging light conditions. Consisting of 16 optical elements in 12 groups, this lens features one ED element and three high-grade aspherical elements to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations and improve color rendition. In order to accommodate high-resolution image sensors in DSLRs, its MTF is programmed to be more acute than those of conventional models in the same class to deliver high-resolution, fine-detailed images.

Versatile, 5.3-times Zoom Lens Covering Ultra-Wide Angles  
This zoom lens offers a zoom ratio of approximately 5.3 times to cover the ultra-wide-angle to telephoto ranges (for focal lengths equivalent to 24.5mm to 130mm in the 35mm format). In addition to the most commonly used focal lengths, it provides ultra-wide-angle coverage to produce distinctive, creative visual expressions, such as an exaggerated perspective or an extra-wide depth of field.  

HD Coating to Improve Image Description  
This lens is treated with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating. Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, this PENTAX-original coating assures higher light transmission and reduced reflections to deliver bright, high-contrast images free from flare and ghosting, even under demanding backlit conditions.  

Weather-Resistant Construction  
This lens features dependable, weather-resistant construction with eight special seals to effectively prevent intrusion of water into the lens interior. When used with a weather-resistant digital SLR camera body, it assures a durable, reliable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings — even in rain or mist or in locations prone to water splashes or spray.
