The two new lenses from Pentax, the HD Pentax-FA 35mm f/2 and HD Pentax DA* 11-18mm f/2.8 ED DC AW leaked yesterday, are now official. People have been waiting a long time for that 11-18mm f/2.8, although the 35mm f/2 has been something of a surprise for Pentax shooters. Here are the full specs and prices, and now both lenses are available to pre-order.
It’s been a long wait. The HD Pentax-DA * 11-18mm f/2.8 ED DC AW was first announced way back in October 2017 at PPE. And, as Pentax shooters often do, they’ve been sitting patiently waiting for it to actually become a reality. Now, according to Nokishita, it’s finally coming. And there’s also a full-frame 35mm f/2 lens coming, too.
