Pentax Announces Affordable DA-35mm F2.4 Standard Lens

Pentax has introduced the new smc PENTAX DA35 mm F2.4 AL standard lens.

Mounted on a PENTAX digital SLR camera body, the company said this standard lens offers an angle of view equivalent to a 53.5mm lens in the 35mm format for a natural, comfortable perspective similar to the naked eye for a variety of subjects and applications, including snapshots, landscape and portrait.

The new lens features a hybrid aspherical optical element in its optics to deliver high-quality images with enhanced sharpness and contrast, from minimum focusing distance to infinity, and assures exceptional image-resolving power with outstanding brightness levels even at the edges (even at an open aperture) while effectively compensating various aberrations to a minimum, according to Pentax.

Available in mid-October, the Pentax smc PENTAX DA35 mm F2.4 AL will retail for about $220.
