All-metal construction, engraved markings, and excellent optics. Ultra-compact, it’s perfect for travelers. The close-focusing distance of 7.25 inches and magnification of 1:5.7 promise great vacation close-ups.
One of Pentax's exclusive Limited series lenses, the lightweight and compact 21mm f/3.2 ($470, street) features all the traits that have made a name for the Limited series: solid all-metal materials, extremely high manufacturing standards, engraved barrel markings, and uncompromising optics. Its high-tech pluses include a hybrid aspheric element and Pentax's relatively new SP coating that the company claims will make glass surfaces unusually easy to clean. Mounted on a Pentax DSLR, the 21mm's angle of view is equal to that of a 31.5mm lens on a 35mm film SLR.
