The new Pentax DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 AL [IF] DC WR becomes the 4th water-resistant lens in Pentax’s affordable WR series which gives access to environmentally sealed lenses to people with limited budgets. This moderate zoom ratio lens fits the typical idea of a walk-around lens, except this time the walking can be done rain or snow.
This lens, designed exclusively for use with Pentax DSLR cameras features an internal focusing system using a built-in DC motor. As with most Pentax lenses, this one features quick-shift manual focusing and water-and-grease repellent SP lens coating.
The DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 AL [IF] DC WR will be available in October from Pentax Canada authorized resellers. No suggested retail was given.
