The Pentax SMCP-DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited Lens is designed to be extremely compact and lightweight, compared to conventional macro lenses. Designed specifically for digital SLR cameras, this lens provides one-to-one magnification in a normal focal length. It provides a focal view equivalent to 53.5mm in 35mm format.
The 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited's elements have been treated with Pentax's acclaimed Super-Multi-Coating for maximum light transmission, sharp definition, and high contrast, while minimizing flare and ghost imaging. In addition, SP coating is used on the exterior element to protect the lens against water and grease. The high-grade aluminum construction of the lens barrel, hood and cap ensure maximum durability.
SP (Super Protective) coating made of a special fluoride compound has been applied to the front surface of the new lens through the use of a unique evaporation process. As a result, the lens offers excellent water- and oil-repellant performance and makes for easier cleaning should the lens be accidentally smeared with fingerprints or cosmetics.
Close focus capability of 5.5" (13.9cm).
Quick-shift Focus System for instant switching from auto focus to manual focus.
