The professional PENTAX HD DA 560 mm is designed for photographing nature, automobiles, wildlife, and astronomical objects. Its rugged construction and special seals make it resistant against rain and poor weather conditions without compromising picture quality and high aperture.
The 521 mm lens has a new multi-layer HD coating that ensures sharp, clear images without ghosting and flare even under difficult lighting conditions such as backlight. Its optical system with 6 elements in 5 groups includes two ED (extra-low dispersion) optical elements. These deliver bright, high-contrast images, while effectively minimising chromatic aberration.
The AW (All Weather) series lens features a durable, dust-proof construction with 29 special seals to prevent the intrusion of dust and water into the lens interior. Used in combination with any waterproof PENTAX SLR gives you a reliable camera system that allows you to work even in rain or dense fog. Meanwhile, its white colour will be undoubtedly appreciated when shooting on a hot day under the blazing sun.
The front part of the lens is coated with SP (Super Protect) coating, which is a special fluorine compound applied to the outer surface of the front lens element. The coating effectively repels dust, water, and grease, and enables you to easily wipe fingerprints and smears left by cosmetic creams, keeping the lens clean. The lens is equipped with autofocus, though Quick Shift allows you to instantly switch to manual by rotating the focus control ring.
