RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. is pleased to announce the launch of the HD PENTAX-D FA 21mm F2.4ED Limited DC WR. Designed for use with PENTAX K-mount full-frame DSLRs, this ultra-wide-angle single-focus lens is the newest model in the PENTAX Limited series of lenses, highly acclaimed for their distinctive image rendition and superb exterior design
Developed as the latest model in the PENTAX Limited series — renowned for their meticulous attention to every detail, from distinctive image rendition to distinctive appearance with the ma-chined aluminum lens barrel — this ultra-wide-angle lens covers the image circle of 35mm full-frame digital SLR cameras. In the PENTAX Limited lineup, it is also the first D FA-series lens designed to optimize the visual characteristics of digital images. This is part of PENTAX’s at-tempt to reach a level of imaging performance that can’t be measured simply in numerical values. It captures the prevailing ambience and true-to-life sense of depth of the scene, and makes photography enjoyable for its users — essential elements of the PENTAX Limited series. The 21mm ultra-wide-angle focal length, not previously available in the FA Limited series, adds a new perspective of visual expression for the Limited series.
With the fast focusing speed, the high image quality and the elaborate construction, not only the buyers of the current model, the PENTAX K-3 Mark III, but also owners of older cameras of the PENTAX APS-C system are addressed.
