describes seven microscopically thin layers of
high quality coatings that are applied to the lens
elements. smc coatings significantly increase the
amount of light transmitted by the lens.
AL (Aspherical Lens elements) Unlike
spherical lens elements, aspherical elements
do not have a uniformly curved spherical
shape. The form of an aspherical lens is adapted
to a specific task and the curvature of each is
individually calculated. The production of these lenses
is accordingly complex.

To calculate the equivalent in 645 film format multiply the focal length by 1.3
To calculate the equivalent in 24x36mm film format multiply the focal length by 0.8
ED (Extra-low dispersion glass) Normal
glass lens elements tend to divide the incident
light into its various colour components,
just like a prism would. This happens particularly at
the edges, adding unwanted colour fringing to the
image. The longer the focal length of the lens the
more apparent the fringing effect. ED glass is an
exceptionally high-quality specialty glass that greatly
reduces this chromatic aberration.
IF (Inner Focusing) Each lens is composed
of several groups of lens elements. With an
Inner Focusing design only one of these
groups is moved. Inner Focusing brings a number
of advantages compared to a conventional focusing
design where all the lens groups are moved. Firstly
it works faster, and secondly, the overall length of
the lens remains unchanged so the centre of balance
remains constant. Additionally, since the front lens
element doesn’t rotate, filters do not have to be
readjusted every time the focus point changes.
SDM (Supersonic Direct-drive Motor)
Small motors manage the actual focusing of
an autofocus system. With the “Supersonic
Direct-drive Motor” PENTAX has developed a
technology that drives the focusing mechanism with
an ultrasonic motor. PENTAX SDM lenses drive the
autofocus system significantly faster and operate
more quietly than conventionally driven AF lenses.
Quick Shift Focus System The PENTAX
The PENTAX Quick Shift Focus System allows
instant switching between Auto Focus and
Manual Focus simply by turning the focusing ring
on the lens. A clever clutch mechanism takes care of
the rest.
SP Coating Based on a fluoride bonding the
coating prevents the contamination of the lens
by water-based or oily substances. SP coated
lenses are much more easily cleaned of finger marks,
smears or other substances than may come in contact
with the lens.
Water and dust protection
Humidity and dirt are the natural
enemies of high performance
electronics and precision optics. So that neither water
nor dust can penetrate, the latest PENTAX lenses are
protected by a comprehensive system of seals for
thorough protection..

This cord allows you
to control a flash to a
distance of 0.5m or 3m.
The O-GPS1 unit enables to record
shooting location data. It mounts on
the hot shoe and records the latitude,
longitude, altitude, universal time
coordinated (UTC) and direction of the
shooting location into captured images
Exif data. Using mapping software
such as Google Earth™, the user can
easily recall shooting locations and
directions on a map. The O-GPS1
offers a Simple Navigation function,
which calculates the direction and
distance to a given destination from
the current position. The user can,
either locate destinations using
location data stored on recorded
images, or register and/or assign them
by uploading location data created on
a PC. The O-GPS1 comes equipped
with an Electronic Compass function,
which displays the camera’s direction
on its LCD monitor with great
precision. With its weather-resistant
construction, it can also be used in
light rain.
