DA* Lenses

The DA* lenses are designed for use with Pentax digital SLR cameras. DA* lenses have higher quality optics than the DA series and typically have the distinction of being weather sealed to match the weather sealed capabilities of the Pentax K10D, K200D, K20D, K7, K5, K-30, and K-5ii/K-5iis DSLR camera bodies. The DA* lenses are more expensive and generally feature improved light transmission and larger aperture openings for better low light performance. Some DA* lenses also feature both body driven screw drive focusing and the Pentax SDM (Supersonic Drive Motor) lens based focus mechanism

Famous quotes containing the word lenses:

    Life is a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue, and each shows only what lies in its focus.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
