This fast, standard lens designed specifically for use with the PENTAX 645D. It features an advanced optical design tailored for digital photography, quiet SDM autofocus, and it's fully weather sealed for field use. Fast f/2.8 maximum aperture allows outstanding depth of field control, while maximizing shutter speeds for existing light photography. Fixed 55mm standard-length focal length lens. Advanced optical design, including lens curvature and optical coatings, is optimized for the exacting needs of digital photographic sensors. Fully weather-sealed design works with the 645D weather-sealed body for maximum reliability in the field. Curved aperture blades provide a circular aperture at f/5.6 for extremely smooth image bokeh.

The HD PENTAX-DA645 28-45mm f/4.5 ED AW SR is optimized to provide premium performance with the PENTAX 645 medium-format digital cameras. While this ultra-wide angle zoom lens captures expansive views for landscape photography, it's also the perfect lens for architectural photography requiring a wide-angle view with minimal distortion. The lens offers a zoom ratio of approx. 1.6X to cover ultra-wide-angle to wide-angle ranges; (equivalent focal lengths of 22mm to 35.5mm in the 35mm format), when mounted on a PENTAX 645Z or 645D camera body. Producing visual effects (i.e., exaggerated perspective and expanded depth-of-field), this lens can be used for a wide variety of scenes and subjects, such as sweeping landscapes, architecture and cramped rooms, adding more versatility to advanced medium-format digital SLR photography. Designed as the HD PENTAX DA-series model in the PENTAX 645 lens series, the image circle of this lens is optimized for the image sensor of the PENTAX 645Z camera body. Optics feature 17 elements in 12 groups, including two high-performance aspherical elements and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements, to enhance image resolution and brightness at edges, while minimizing various aberrations. Coupled with innovative lens coatings and an anti-reflective coating (applied to the interior of the lens barrel), this lens is designed to bring out the best performance of PENTAX medium-format digital SLR cameras. This lens is treated with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating to optimize light transmission and minimize reflections. HD coating delivers sharp, clear images free of flare and ghost images, even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight. By coupling this coating with the PENTAX-exclusive, high-grade Aero Bright Coating, this lens is designed to provide exceptionally high light transmission and super-low refraction. PENTAX-innovated SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism is incorporated within the lens barrel. It effectively compensates for camera shake up to approx. 3.5 (shutter) stops. So you get sharp, blur-free images even under conditions prone to camera shake, such as when hand-holding the camera in poorly lit locations without flash, photographing sunsets, or using a long lens. As the newest member of the AW (All Weather) series, this lens features dependable dustproof, weather-resistant construction with 11 special seals to effectively prevent the penetration of dust and moisture. When used on the PENTAX 645D or 645Z camera body, you are assured of a durable, reliable digital imaging system that performs superbly in demanding shooting settings: rain, mist, or locations prone to water splashes or spray. SP (Super Protect) Coating applied to the front surface of the lens to effectively repel water and grease.

When mounted on a PENTAX 645D medium format digital SLR camera body, this medium-telephoto 645 Macro 90mm lens offers a focal length of approximately 71mm (or approx. 65mm when mounted on a PENTAX 645 film-format camera body) in the 35mm format. Enjoy macro photography at a maximum magnification of 0.5 times. In close-up applications, its floating lens mechanism effectively compensates for the curvature of the field to assure sharp, well-defined images. With the incorporation of PENTAX-original HD coating and the PENTAX-innovated lens-installed SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, this medium-telephoto lens assures bright, velvety imagery that is ideal for portrait photography. Dependable dustproof and weather-resistant construction includes 11 special seals to effectively prevent the intrusion of dust and water into the lens interior, plus many more features. This lens incorporates two ED (extra-low dispersion) elements and one glass-molded aspherical element in its optics to assure high-resolution image reproduction over the entire image field and effectively reduces chromatic aberration. At larger apertures, this lens defines the subject with fine, delicate lines and soft velvety edges that are ideal for portrait photography. At smaller apertures, this lens produces sharp, solid images to make it useful for applications other than portraiture, such as scenic and still-life photography. This is the first lens to incorporate the PENTAX-innovated SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism within the lens barrel. This mechanism effectively compensates for camera shake up to approx. 3.5 shutter steps and assures the user sharp, blur-free images, even under conditions prone to camera shake, such as hand-holding, poorly lit locations, and photographing scenes at or near dusk. Treated with the newly developed, high-grade, multi-layer lens HD (High Definition) coating. This new coating offers higher light transmittance with reduced reflection to deliver sharp, clear images free of flare and ghosting, even under demanding lighting conditions. By coupling the HD coating with the PENTAX-exclusive, high grade Aero Bright Coating, this lens optimizes light transmittance while minimizing refraction. Features a dependable dustproof and weather-resistant construction with 11 special seals to effectively prevent the intrusion of dust and water into the lens interior. With this lens, the user is assured of a durable, reliable imaging system that performs superbly in demanding outdoor settings-even in the rain, or locations prone to water splash. SP (Super Protect) coating is applied to the front surface of this lens to effectively repel water and grease, and for easy wipe-off of dust. Along with the traditional PENTAX medium-format lens design including twill-patterned focus ring and metal rings, this lens features a red ring at the front end of the focus ring to signify the new HD (High Definition) PENTAX lens series and enhance its exclusive appearance. The Quick-Shift focus system allows for instant switching to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera's AF system. This lens is designed with a rounded diaphragm to produce a smooth, beautiful bokeh, while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources. The D-LI90(E) Lithium-Ion Battery from Pentax is a rechargeable power source for select digital cameras. It has an output of 7.2V, a capacity of 1860mAh, and a power consumption rate of 14Wh.
