The Pentax 100mm macro lens also features the Pentax original SP (Super Protect) surface coating to repel dust, water and grease and to minimize fingerprints. Mounted on a Pentax digital SLR camera body, this lens offers a focal length equivalent to 153mm in the 35mm format for high-quality, true-to-life images, while minimizing flare and ghost images. The maximum life-size magnification allows photographers to capture dramatic close-up images with great ease.
Other significant features of this latest WR Pentax 100mm macro lens include: a working distance of just over five inches (13 cm) facilitates close-up photography of subjects including flora, insects, and wildlife. The Pentax developed Quick-Shift Focus System for instant switching to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system. An image circle to accommodate 35mm film-format camera image size. Compatibility with the macro adapter included in the Pentax AF160FC dedicated Auto Macro Ring Flash.
