question

will it work as a full frame on the new Pentax k1?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Pentax HD Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited Lens is designed for use on APS-C sensor cameras; however, many owners and users of the lens have often stated that they happily use this lens on their Pentax 35mm film cameras and the lens does cover the full image frame. As such, the lens should also work for use on the full-frame Pentax K-1 DSLR camera. (Do note this claim has only been made about the Pentax HD Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited Lens, and does not apply to other Pentax DA Limited lenses).

question

What are the differences between this HD lens and the less expensive version?Is it just coatings, is it an entirely different design, is it a different type of construction? It is a shame that it doesn't have the WR feature.
Asked by: Anonymous
The one you are referring to has has better coatings and is an updated version. With those coatings it will perform better and in most cases give you a sharper images.
