Pentax’s latest lens, the HD PENTAX D FA 70-210mm f/4 ED SDM WR, combines an impressive zoom with a lightweight and weather-resistant build, perfect for carrying out into nature. Three Extra-Low Dispersion glass elements and two anomalous dispersion glass elements provide sharp, low-distortion images. A minimum focusing distance of 0.95m means this lens is as useful for capturing a lion on safari as your cat on the sofa.

A ring-type Supersonic Direct-Drive Motor (SDM) keeps focusing quick and quiet, while its extension-free design maintains a relatively compact form factor. Quick-Shift Focus System simplifies moving between auto and manual modes, and a two-step focus range limiter adds further precision to operation in the field. A nine-bladed, rounded diaphragm provides smooth focus falloff for subject separation. Video shooters will appreciate electromagnetic diaphragm control when used with compatible camera bodies.

A new HD coating improves light transmission and reduces flare and ghosting, while an SP coating repels water and grease. When combined with a weather-resistant camera body, you should have no problem shooting in the wet environments.
