PENTAX D FA MACRO 100mm F2.8 WR Lens

Pentax Imaging Company says the new smc PENTAX D FA MACRO 100mm F2.8 WR lens’ simplified weather-resistant construction is designed to repel water and moisture.

Combined with a weather-resistant PENTAX K-7, K20D, K200D or K10D digital SLR camera body, the lens performs well in damp, inclement outdoor conditions including rain, mist, water spray and splashes, according to the company.

The lens offers a focal length equivalent to 153mm in the 35mm format. For close-up photography, the PENTAX D FA MACRO 100mm F2.8 WR can focus at a minimum working distance of just over 5 inches or 13cm.

The new smc PENTAX D FA MACRO 100mm F2.8 WR lens will start shipping next month with a retail price of $850.
