The FA 85mm f/1.4 SDM AW Lens from Pentax is a standard length prime lens with a bright maximum aperture that enables accurate low-light shooting as well as providing a wide range of depth of field control. While designed for full-frame Pentax K-mount cameras, the lens can be used on APS-C format cameras. 

Aero Bright Coating II and HD Coating on the 12 lens elements reduces flare and ghosting even when shooting in harsh lighting, and a front element SP Coating repels water and fingerprints from affecting the front of your lens. Autofocus is powered by Pentax's Ultrasonic Motor SDM, providing fast and accurate focus while shooting. Additionally, the rounded 9-blade diaphragm produces smooth bokeh for portraits or other types of shots. This lens is also weather-sealed, ensuring consistent performance during adverse outdoor shooting conditions.

With is wide f1.4 aperture this lens creates fantastic bokeh, seen with the likes of the Canon L Series lens, which is very impressive.

Pentax has created this lens with there start of the art Aero Bright Coating II, which is a lens coating that features nanotechnology providing a super-low refractive film fabrication process (In other words it reduces surface glare/reflections/ghosting). Since it minimizes distortion even at a focusing distance of approximately one meter, it produces crisp, distortion-free images over the entire focusing range, from the minimum focusing distance to infinity.

Dustproof, weather-resistant construction.

This lens features a dependable dustproof, weather-resistant structure with eight special seals to prevent the intrusion of water and dust into the lens interior.
