Pentax smc DA-L 18-55mm / smc DA-L 50-200mm

Pentax smc DA-L 18-55mmThe Pentax smc DA-L 18-55mm / smc DA-L 50-200mm are the first two lenses in Pentax’s new and ultra-lightweight smc DA-L zoom lens series. The smc Pentax-DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6AL lens is a compact, standard zoom lens with a focal length of 27.5-84.5mm, weighing only 700 grams. The smc PENTAX-DA L 50-200mm F4-5.6ED lens is a super-compact, ultra-lightweight telephoto zoom lens with a focal length of 76.5-8307mm. In order to keep weight and price as attractive as possible, Pentax has adjusted the construction of these zoom lenses. Unlike other Pentax lens series these two lenses are equipped with synthetic bayonets and do not the Pentax Quick-Shift focal system. Initially, both new lenses will be offered only as a kit with the Pentax K-m which will be available in November 2008. The Pentax K-m / K2000 will retail at £399.99 with the new smc DA-L 18-55 lens or £499.99 with the smc DA-L 18-55 and 50-200mm lenses.

Pentax UK Press Release

Pentax U.K. is pleased to announce the launch of two new DA L-series interchangeable zoom lenses – the smc DA-L 18-55mm and the smc DA-L 50-200mm. 

The ultra-lightweight construction of the lenses perfectly complements the new and compact Pentax K-m D-SLR. These zoom lenses and the K-m D-SLR are ideal for beginners, but also for those D-SLR photographers who need high quality but light-weight equipment. 

The smc PENTAX-DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6AL lens is a compact, standard zoom lens with focal lengths from 27.5mm to 84.5mm (in the 35mm format) covering wide-angle to medium-telephoto ranges. It offers the latest optical design featuring high-performance aspherical lens elements and super-low dispersion glass elements for effective compensation of various aberrations. Weighing in at only 700grams, the K-m and 18-55mm combination is perfect for the first-time user or a great travel photographer’s kit.

The smc PENTAX-DA L 50-200mm F4-5.6ED lens is a super-compact, ultra-lightweight telephoto zoom lens with focal lengths from 76.5mm to 307mm (in the 35mm format). It is equipped with an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass optical element for effective compensation of chromatic aberrations over the entire zoom range and enhanced image-description.

In order to keep weight and price as attractive as possible, Pentax has adjusted the construction of these zoom lenses. Unlike other Pentax lens series these two lenses are equipped with synthetic bayonets and do not the Pentax Quick-Shift focal system.

Initially, both new lenses will be offered only as a kit with the Pentax K-m which will be available in November 2008.

Price
The K-m will retail at £399.99 with smc DA-L 18-55 or £499.99 with smc DA-L 18-55 + 50-200mm
