DA 50mm

This month, we have a fantastic prize to offer you courtesy of Pentax in the October 'Autumn' competition. Hurry, as you only have until midnight tonight to enter!

Pentax are giving away a brand new HD DFA  50mm f/1.4 SDM AW lens! The 50mm f/1.4 is a familiar standard lens that will become a special partner in terms of your photography. ePHOTOzine recently reviewed the 50mm f/1.4 and gave it a 5-star Editor's Choice award!



Pentax's HD DFA 50mm f/1.4 Key Features

This KAF4 mount lens is dust and weatherproof, featuring 8 special seals. There's a large minimum aperture of f/1.4, allowing for bright, clear images. A 9-bladed round diaphragm helps produce a natural bokeh effect up to f/2.8. With a close focusing capability down to 40cm, the lens has you covered whether your subject is near or far. Adjust the focal point easily with Quick-shift focus - use AF to focus on a subject and then make fine adjustments using the manual focusing ring. Aero bright coating II, SP coating and HD coating are all employed to reduce light refraction, repel oil and dirt from the surface of the lens and reduce flare and ghosting to a minimum. An SDM ultrasonic motor provides smooth and fast focusing operation. An electromagnetic diaphragm control mechanism offers high precision exposure control during video recording.
