Weather resistant construction makes Pentax 100mm macro exclusive
For improved performance, the Pentax D FA Macro 100mm F2.8 WR is the first Pentax interchangeable macro lens featuring a completely rounded diaphragm blade to create a natural, beautiful bokeh at wide apertures, while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources. Pentax WR lenses feature simplified weather-resistant construction to repel water and moisture. Combined with a Pentax weather-resistant K-7, K20D, K200D or K10D digital SLR camera body, the Pentax 100mm macro performs well in damp, inclement outdoor conditions including rain, mist, water spray and splashes.
