Retail S$7,499.00

This is a super telephoto lens that has a focal length equivalent to 859mm in the 35mm film format.
The new high-performance multicoating "HD Coating" and astrometric telescope-type optical system are used to enable sharp, crystal-clear images of distant subjects.




 

Superior distant view catching performance

An astronomical-type optical system with few lenses is used for enabling sharp, crystal-clear images particularly for photography of distant subjects. The optical system uses two ED (extra-low dispersion) glass lenses for correcting chromatic aberration and providing sufficient lighting for the edges and high resolution performance.


New "HD Coating" (Note 1)

A new high-performance multicoating "HD Coating" (Note 1) is used. This coating has less reflection and higher transmissivity than conventional coatings for providing sharp, crystal-clear images with reduced ghosting and flare even under backlighting and other adverse lighting conditions.

Note 1: "HD" is abbreviation for High Definition. Definition = Transparency, detail, resolution, imaging performance


Dust-resistant and drip-proof construction (AW)

The lens barrel has been sealed in 29 locations for enabling a dust-resistant and drip-proof "AW (All Weather)" construction that prevents the entry of water and dust into the lens.

New design expressing the spirit of the HD series

The lens outside is a white color for a sense of presence and preventing heat haze from occurring inside the lens barrel under hot, sunny conditions. The strap mounting fixture uses a machined stainless steel material for providing a sense of elegance. The red alumite ring in the center of the lens barrel is the distinctive symbol of the HD series.


Enables use of C-PL (circular polarized light) filter

The lens body includes a detachable "filter mounting frame". When the supplied C-PL filter (40.5mm size, specifically for this lens) is attached, an operation ring can be installed for enabling rotation from the outside for enabling easy adjustment of polarizing effects.


Internal lens motor for smooth AF

The autofocus uses an internal lens AF motor (DC motor) for smooth driving action. (Note 2)Note 2: The compatible models are the K-3, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-30, K-01, K-5, K-r, K-7, K-x, K-m, K20D, K200D, K100D Super, and K10D (firmware version 1.30 or later). If attached to other cameras, focusing is performed using the manual focus.


Quick-Shift Focus System

After focusing by AF, manual focus operation is possible without any switching operation.


SP (super protect) coating

A SP (super protect) coating is used for protecting the lens front surface from water and dirt and allowing any adhering dirt and oils to be easily removed


Round iris diaphragm (Open to F11)

This lens uses a round iris diaphragm for reducing the beam of light when shooting point light sources and for enabling representation of round out-of-focus (bokeh) effect.
