With a focal length of 70mm, this medium telephoto lens is a multi-talented masterpiece that gets the most out of portraits and grandiose landscapes from a highly portable lens. This lens produces unusually sharp, high-contrast imagery, and its extraordinarily efficient optical glass is the key to its compact design, with an overall length of only 1 inch and weight of a mere 4.6 oz. It is also equipped with “Quick Shift” Focus System for fast manual focusing in the AF mode, and its unique design incorporates high-grade aluminum construction with treatments of both SP (Super Protect) and the PENATX-original High-grade multi-layer HD (High Definition) coating, available in both black and silver models.
High-grade HD coating for exceptional image rendition
High-grade HD coating assures higher light transmittance and lower reflectance than conventional multi-layer coatings. Sharper, clear images free of flare and ghosting, even under adverse lighting conditions and backlight.
* HD stands for High Definition, and signifies the lens’s capacity to reproduce images that excel in transparency, definition, resolution and rendition.
Round-shaped diaphragm for beautiful out-of-focus rendition
Upgraded with a round 9 blades diaphragm at a wide aperture for optimal optic performance and gorgeous bokeh effects.
Premium quality of the Limited Lens-series
While inheriting the design concept of the Limited Lens series, these lenses were designed by combining a series of mechanical and numerical evaluations with human assessment of test-shooting samples to assure the ultimate in image reproduction. Their optical design has been optimized for digital photography to deliver sharp, clear images with outstanding contrast, even at the maximum aperture. In addition, their lens barrel, hood and cap are all made of a high-grade aluminum material, hand-machined for perfect proportions and beautiful texture.
