Features

  • The smc Pentax DA Star 55mm F1.4 SDM is a prime standard lens that is ideal for portrait, still-life, or low light photography.
  • Its fast F1.4 aperture offers outstanding depth of field control, and its rounded diaphragm blades create a more circular aperture for smooth, beautiful bokeh at large aperture settings.
  • Adding the Pentax Aero Bright coating on internal lens elements offers ultra high refraction index for improved light transmission with minimal ghosting and flaring.
  • The tightly sealed, weather-resistant and dust-resistant construction enhances durability for use in both rainy and dusty conditions, making the DA Star 55mm F1.4 SDM lens a perfect companion for the weather-resistant Pentax DSLR bodies.
  • The Pentax-original Quick-Shift Focus System allows instant switching from autofocus to manual focus operation.
  • The Pentax-original SP (Super Protect) coating repels dust, water and grease to keep your lens clean and your image quality at its peak.
  • The SDM focus system incorporated in this lens results in a smoother, quieter autofocusing operation using a built-in supersonic motor.
  • The focal length is equivalent to 84.5mm in the 35mm format

    Comments about Pentax 55mm DA f/1.4 Standard Lens:

    This lens gives amazing depth of field. It pulls the colors out in an image better and brighter that what your eye can see. Professional portrait quality images every time. This lens is so fast I can capture my daughter dancing Irish Dance indoors in mid air with no flash and I get pristine images. I have this paired with a Pentax K-7 wich is also amazing.
