Pentax DA* lenses - Digital SDM zoom lenses
These Pentax-DA* series lenses feature tightly sealed, weather-resistant and dust-resistant construction to enhance durability for use in rain or dusty conditions making each a perfect companion for the weather-sealed Pentax K10D digital SLR. The lenses also feature the Pentax original Quick-Shift Focus System for instant switching to manual-focus operation and Pentax-original SP (Super Protect) coating to repel dust, water and grease. A new SDM system has been incorporated for smoother, quieter autofocusing operation using a built-in supersonic motor.
