Super thin Design
Measuring just 41mm in height, the HD DA 18-50mm lens’ super thin construction assures outstanding portability when used in combination with PENTAX DSLR’s. This standard zoom lens offers a zoom ratio of approximately 2.8 times to cover the wide-angle to standard ranges (for focal lengths equivalent to 27.5mm to 76.5mm in the 35mm format), which are the most frequently used ranges in general photographic applications.

HD Coating
This lens is treated with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating. Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, this PENTAX-original coating assures higher light transmission and reduced reflections to deliver bright, high-contrast images free from flare and ghosting, even under demanding backlit conditions.

Weather-resistant construction
This lens features dependable, weather-resistant construction with nine special seals to effectively prevent intrusion of water into the lens interior. When used with a weather-resistant digital SLR camera body, it assures a durable, reliable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings.

Exceptional Image Rendition
Incorporating super-low dispersion glass elements and aspherical elements in its 11-element/eight-group optics, this lens effectively compensates various aberrations for high-contrast, high-resolution, fine-detailed images with minimal colour bleeding.

Quick Shift focus System
The PENTAX-original Quick-Shift Focus System allows instant switching from autofocus to manual focus operation.
