Details

The HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED WR is a versatile telephoto zoom lens for Pentax K-mount lens-interchangeable digital SLR cameras, featuring high-grade HD coating and dependable weather-resistant construction.

This lens features Pentax original HD coating to deliver sharp, clear images even under such demanding lighting conditions as backlight. Its weather-resistant construction also enhances reliability and durability during challenging outdoor shooting conditions, allowing the photographer to capture high-impact telephoto images without worries.

Approximately 5.5-times zoom ratio in telephoto range

With its wide zoom coverage of approximately 5.5 times, the lens offers focal-length coverage from 84.5 medium telephoto to 460mm super telephoto (in the 35mm format), making it ideal for use with a wide variety of subjects and applications including portraits, sports and landscapes. It incorporates two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements in its optics to effectively compensate for chromatic aberrations over the entire zoom range and deliver well-defined, true-to-life images.

High-grade HD coating for exceptional image rendition

The lens is treated with HD coating, a PENTAX-exclusive multi-layer lens coating that assures higher light transmittance and lower reflectance than conventional multi-layer coatings. This means it produces sharp, clear images free of flare and ghost images, even under such adverse lighting conditions as backlight.

Dependable weather-resistant construction

The lens features weather-resistant construction to prevent the intrusion of water and moisture into the lens barrel. When the lens is mounted on a PENTAX weather-resistant digital SLR camera body, the user is assured of greater durability and reliability when shooting in rain or mist, as well as at locations subject to a spray or splash.

Quick-Shift Focus System

The lens features the PENTAX-developed Quick-Shift Focus System, which allows the user to instantly switch to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system.
