Pentax Introduces Weather Proof Lenses

smc PENTAX-DA18-55mmF3.5-5.6AL WR and smc PENTAX-DA50-200mmF4-5.6ED WR Weather-Resistant Lenses

The Pentax K-7 DSLR is weather-resistant – it’s sealed from dust, moisture and temperature. So Pentax also came up with two weather-resistant zoom lenses to go with the new K-7.

The smc PENTAX-DA18-55mmF3.5-5.6AL WR and the smc PENTAX-DA50-200mmF4-5.6ED WR are two standard zoom, kit grade lenses offered with the new Pentax K-7 DSLR. They both feature newly designed, simplified weather-resistant construction, the company said, and these zoom lenses offer excellent reliability in various outdoor conditions — particularly rain, fog and mist.

The DA 18-55mm will retail for $200 and the DA 50-200mm $250, when they ship in July 2009 along with the new K-7 DSLR.
