Overview

HD PENTAX DA 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR

The HD PENTAX DA 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR is optimized to provide premium performance for use on PENTAX K-mount digital SLR cameras. Catering to the needs of the photographer, this lens provides a high zoom ratio of approximately 5.3 times to cover focal lengths from 16mm ultra-wide-angle to 85mm medium-telephoto for lengths equivalent to 24.5mm to 130mm (in the 35mm format). This versatile zoom lens comes in handy for a wide variety of scenes and subjects, including sweeping landscapes and cramped rooms. Equipped with the PENTAX-exclusive, HD coating, this lens is sure to offer sharp, clear images even under challenging light conditions.

Versatile, 5.3-times zoom lens covering ultra-wide angles

This zoom lens offers a zoom ratio of approximately 5.3 times to cover the ultra-wide-angle to telephoto ranges (for focal lengths equivalent to 24.5mm to 130mm in the 35mm format). In addition to the most commonly used focal lengths, it provides ultra-wide-angle coverage to produce distinctive, creative visual expressions, such as an exaggerated perspective or an extra-wide depth of field.

Exceptional imaging power to optimize the performance of super-high-resolution cameras

Consisting of 16 optical elements in 12 groups, this lens features one ED element and three high-grade aspherical elements to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations and improve color rendition. In order to accommodate high-resolution image sensors in DSLRs, its MTF is programmed to be more acute than those of conventional models in the same class to deliver high-resolution, fine-detailed images.

HD Coating to improve image description

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 eight 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 — even in rain or mist or in locations prone to water splashes or spray.

Quick-Shift Focus system

This lens is equipped with the PENTAX-developed Quick-Shift Focus system, which allows the user to instantly switch to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system.

Other features

SP (Super Protect) Coating (applied to the front surface of the lens) effectively repels water and grease. Rounded diaphragm blades produce a smooth, beautiful bokeh effect; while minimizing the streaking effect from point light sources. Smooth, quiet autofocus operation, driven by the built-in DC motor.
