Details

The Pentax D-FA 645 55mm F2.8 AL (IF) SDM AW lens is a fast, standard lens designed specifically for use with Pentax's 645 medium-format digital SLR cameras. It features an advanced optical design tailored for digital photography, quiet SDM autofocus, and it's fully weather sealed for field use.

State-of-the-art optics

Incorporating high-performance, hybrid aspherical optical element in its optics, this new standard lens offers exceptional image-resolving power with outstanding brightness levels even at the edges, while compensating various aberrations to a minimum. All lens characteristics are optimized for digital photography: for instance, flare and ghost images are minimized by applying exclusive lens coatings to optical elements and employing anti-reflection materials for the interior of the lens barrel. As the result, this lens can bring out the full potential of Pentax's 645 medium-format digital SLR camera

Versatile standard lens

When mounted on the Pentax 645 camera body, this standard lens offers a focal length of 43.5mm (in the 35mm format), which produces an angle of view close to that of the human eye. As the result, it can be used for many different kinds of subjects and applications, including landscapes and portraits.

Dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction

Using seven special seals, the lens’ dustproof, weather-resistant construction effectively prevents the intrusion of dust and water to the lens interior. By coupling this lens with a Pentax 645 camera body, the user is assured of a durable, reliable digital SLR camera system that performs superbly in outdoor settings, even in rain or mist or at locations prone to water splashes or spray.

Aero Bright coating to dramatically improve image description in backlight

The lens is treated with Pentax-original Aero Bright coating, which delivers brilliant, high-quality images by preventing annoying flare and ghost images more effectively than ever before. Born as the fruit of Pentax’s advanced nanotechnology, this exclusive coating effectively reduces lens reflectance and greatly increases light transmittance by forming a silica aerogel layer with uniform pores on the surface of optical element.

Rounded diaphragm to produce a beautiful bokeh

This is the first Pentax medium-format interchangeable lens to features a completely rounded diaphragm. It creates a natural, beautiful “bokeh” (out-of-focus rendition), while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources.

Smooth, quiet SDM autofocus mechanism

The SDM (Supersonic Direct-drive Motor) autofocus mechanism operates smoothly and quietly using the supersonic motor installed inside the lens barrel.

SP coating to block dust and dirt

The front surface of the lens is treated with Pentax-original SP (Special Protect) coating, which applies an exclusive fluorine compound to the lens surface through a vapour deposition process. This SP coating not only effectively repels dust, water and grease, but also makes it easy to wipe off fingerprints and cosmetics.
