(From Ricoh/Pentax lens literature) The HD PENTAX-DA* 11-18mm F2.8 ED DC AW adds a wide-angle model to the new-generation Star (*) series of lenses, which are optimized for use with today's cameras as well as the super-high-performance digital cameras of the future. It delivers high-resolution, high-contrast images without blurring at the edges, and assures excellent imaging performance, even at open aperture. The focal length of 11mm to 18mm (equivalent to 17mm to 27.5mm in 35mm format) is ideal for photographing landscapes, and other outdoor scenes, and the large F2.8 maximum aperture assures sharp, bright images of scenes with starry skies. The lens features high-grade HD Coating to enhance imaging power and minimize flare and ghost images.

HD PENTAX-DA* 11-18mm F2.8ED DC AW Review -- Product Image

Developed to be used in even the harshest conditions, this new Star series lens offers additional features that make it ideal for outdoor photography. These include dustproof, weather-resistant construction and a Focus Clamp Mechanism to lock the focal point even when the focus ring is rotated, improving operability when photographing landscapes and star-lit scenes. A unique feature of the HD PENTAX-DA* 11-18mm F2.8 ED DC AW is its ability to accommodate the addition of a dew heating strip to prevent condensation without affecting focus-ring operation, and a metal frame that enables the heating device to effectively transmit heat to the lens.

The HD PENTAX-DA* 11-18mm F2.8 ED DC AW lens will be available for pre-sale on Jan. 31, 2019, at www.us.ricoh-imaging.com and retail outlets nationwide for a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$1,399.95.
