The HD PENTAX-DA 560mm F5.6 ED AW super-telephoto lens incorporates a Pentax-original HD Coating - a newly developed high-grade multi-layer lens coating, and telescope-type optics, this super-telephoto lens delivers clear, well-defined images of distant subjects.

When mounted on a Pentax K-mount digital camera body, this super-telephoto lens offers an equivalent focal length of approximately 859mm in the 35mm format. Since the lenses’ unique telescope-type optics require fewer optical elements than conventional lenses, it delivers sharp, well-defined images, particularly of distant subjects. By incorporating two ED (extra-low dispersion) optical elements, it also delivers bright, high-resolution images even at the edges, while effectively minimising chromatic aberration.

High-grade HD Coating

This lens is treated with HD Coating, a new high-grade multi-layer lens coating developed by Pentax. Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, it provides increased light transmittance with reduced reflection, to deliver sharp, clear images free from flare and ghost images, even under demanding lighting conditions.

Dustproof, weather-resistant construction

An addition to the Pentax AW (All Weather) series, this lens features a dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction with 29 special seals to effectively prevent the intrusion of dust and water into the lens interior.

Exterior design

The lens exterior has been painted an elegant white to minimize heat haze generated inside the lens barrel due to strong sun. Featured in the middle of the lens barrel is a red almite ring that clearly signifies the new HD PENTAX lens series. Strap lugs are made from aluminium to enhance its exclusive appearance.

Easy control of circular polarising filter

This lens comes with a built-in, removable filter holder in the barrel. By mounting the C-PL (circular polarising) filter (40.5mm in diameter; included as an exclusive accessory) to the holder, the user can easily obtain the desired polarising effect simply by rotating the filter with its control ring.
