Description:

The HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm F1.4 SDM AW is a professional full-frame prime lens designed to deliver impeccable image quality for today's demanding digital cameras.  It is the second star-series full-frame prime lens of the digital era, the first being the D FA* 50mm F1.4 lens.

The D FA* 85mm F1.4 is a short telephoto lens covering the full frame (24x36mm) format. It features the latest KAF4 lens mount*, which incorporates electromagnetic aperture control. It features a ring-type autofocus motor which delivers significantly more torque than previous SDM motors and the lens is weather sealed. The lens is rated for use from -10 degrees C to 40 degrees C and a humidity of 85% or less.

The lens features three super ED glass lens elements and one aspherical element.

The lens was officially announced on March 24, 2020 and is scheduled to become available in July 2020.

*  Cameras compatible with this system are K-1 Mark II, K-1, K-3 II, KP, K-70, K-3, K-S2, K-S1 and K-50. For K-1, K-3 II, K-3, K-S2, K-S1 and K-50, the camera’s firmware must be upgraded to the latest version. If this lens is mounted on a camera without proper firmware upgrade, its diaphragm control mechanism becomes inactive leaving the aperture fixed at F1.4, making it difficult to obtain correct exposure.
