50mm lenses are some of the most versatile lenses available for DSLRs but the new Pentax Star-Series 50mm lens enhances the already amazing qualities of 50mm lenses. Designed for the Pentax K1 and K1 Mark II cameras, this lens pulls the highest performance out of a full-frame K-mount camera.
The Star-Series 50mm lens features construction you would expect from high-end lenses and is completely weather-sealed to protect it against dust and water. The lens itself also contains some physical features that improve its performance. Firstly, the lens is coated in Pentax’s Aero Bright Coating II, which reduces surface reflections across a wide wavelength and produces a high-quality image.
The Star-Series 50mm lens is slated for release in late July, 2018 and will be available for $1,200.
