The Pentax SMS DA 18-55mm AL WR is a compact, lightweight, weather-resistant zoom lenses designed for exclusive use with Pentax digital SLR cameras

This standard zoom lens covers focal lengths from 27.5mm wide angle to 84.5mm moderate telephoto (in the 35mm format). Incorporating a high-performance aspherical (AL) optical element and a super-low-dispersion glass optical element in its optics, it ensures outstanding image resolution and remarkable brightness, even at the edges, while effectively compensating various aberrations.

Key features

Simplified weather-resistant construction
These new zoom lenses feature a simplified weather-resistant construction designed to minimise the intrusion of water and moisture into the lens barrel. Mount on Pentax weather-resistant digital SLR camera bodies, assures the user of improved durability and reliability during shooting in rain, fog or mist.

SP coating to block dust and dirt

The front surface of these lenses is treated with Pentax-original SP (Super Protect) coating, which applies a special fluorine compound to the lens surface through a vapour deposition process. This SP coating not only repels dust, water and grease, but it also makes it easy to wipe off fingerprints and cosmetics.

Digital-SLR-exclusive optical design

Pentax has optimised the characteristics of these lenses - including lens coating, curvature and positioning of optical elements - to reproduce the finest possible digital images. As a result, they are practically free of flare and ghost images, and bring out the best in the Pentax digital SLR camera bodies they are used with. Their image circle is also perfectly proportioned to the size of the image sensor used in Pentax digital SLR cameras, helping to reduce the camera's overall size and weight and guarantee outstanding cost performance.

Quick-Shift Focus system for instant AF/MF switching
After the subject is captured in focus by the camera's AF system, the unique Quick-Shift Focus system allows the photographer to instantly switch to manualfocus operation for final pin-point focus adjustment.
