Pentax announces the development of the new smc Pentax-D FA interchangeable lens series, designed to optimize image quality in digital SLR photography. The series also features an image circle covering accommodating the 35mm-format film. As the first models of this new series, PENTAX will market two compact, lightweight macro lenses for close-up photography up to a life-size magnification. Taking advantage of its advanced optical design technologies, Pentax successfully optimized the optical characteristics of these new lenses for digital photography, including lens coating and curvature and positioning of optical elements. In particular, flare and ghost images have been reduced to minimum for clear, high-quality digital images.

Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC lens introduction : The characteristics of digital SLR cameras were taken into consideration when designing the lens power layout. The new advanced Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC lens design corrects various aberrations. This lens provides the utmost correction against lateral chromatic aberration which is a serious problem for digital SLR cameras. This lens is coated to get the best colour balance whilst cutting down flare and ghost caused by reflections from the digital image sensor and lens. It has excellent correction for vignetting and superior peripheral brightness is ensured. A Special Low Dispersion (SLD) lens and two aspherical lens elements provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations.
