Pentax Announces New 18-250mm Zoom Lens

PENTAX-DA 18-250mm F3.5-6.3ED AL [IF] Zoom Lens

Pentax today announced a huge 18-250mm zoom lens designed for exclusive use with Pentax digital SLR cameras.

The new smc PENTAX-DA 18-250mm F3.5-6.3ED AL [IF] interchangeable zoom lens offers 14x zoom ratio that covers the range from 27.5mm wide angle to 383mm super-telephoto in the 35mm format.

Without the need for lens changes, it can be used for a wide variety of applications – ranging from such standard applications as landscape photography, snapshots and portrait at frequently used focal lengths, to specialized applications like sports and wildlife photography at the super-telephoto range.

It incorporates one extra-low dispersion (ED) and two aspherical (AL) optical elements in its optics which can effectively compensate for the adverse effects of various aberrations.

The lens will be available this month for $500.
