New Pentax SLR lenses: 560mm f5.6 DA and 18-270 f3.5-6.3 DA SDM (and new HD coating)
Pentax is a gift that keeps on giving today! They have revealed two new DA SLR lenses, the 560mm f5.6 DA teleprime and the 18-270mm f3.5-6.3 DA SDM superzoom. Unlike the 90mm medium format lens, this is not stabilized since Pentax DSLR bodies come with sensor-shift stabilization. Still I think it is a mistake not to offer image stabilization in the lens since that would give photographers two options when it comes to stabilization, and the two options would give Pentax a choice-advantage over the other DSLR manufacturers. But I digress.
But Wait, there's more: new HD Coating technology
What is that HD you keep seeing next to the lens names? It is the new Pentax High Definition (HD) coating technology that promises reflections reduction and other benefits.
