Medium telephoto lens with a viewing sensation that closely resembles the naked eye
This lens includes a host of powerful technologies, including high-refraction glass and ghostless coating for nicely-varied delineation performance up to a minimum shooting distance of 0.7m and expressive capability with abundant gradations capable of capturing even subtle shadows. The F1.8 brightness and 9-blade aperture enables a natural out-of-focus (bokeh) effect that instills depth to the image. The Shippo-yaki finger points stand out in this compact machined aluminum body.
Функции и характеристики
The design was based on the numerical evaluation by various testing instruments and also incorporates advanced evaluation using actual images. The result is an appropriate softness at aperture opening, and as the aperture closes, enables sharp imaging performance and rendering that provides a sense of space, gradations, and three-dimensional feel
This lens uses the FREE system that moves only the front group while keeping the rear group stationary in the lens system when focusing. This enables stable imaging performance from near to far distances.
The lens body uses an aluminum material for providing a design with a sense of elegance and precision. The camera body uses „finger points“ made of a deep purple Shippo-yaki material for providing a firmer gripping sensation.
*When attached to a PENTAX digital SLR camera, the focal length is equivalent to 118mm in the 35mm film format.
