The HD Pentax-DA* 11-18mm F2.8 is one of the most recent additions to the Pentax lineup. This extreme wide angle lens, which is designed to cover the APS-C image circle, complements the 16-50mm and 50-135mm F2.8 lenses launched in 2007. Together, these lenses create a trio of fast, professional-grade zooms for the APS-C format.
The new 11-18mm has All Weather sealing, uses Pentax's fast and silent DC focusing motor, and includes modern HD coatings. It also incorporates several elements meant to facilitate its usage in cold weather, which makes it a rather unique product.
