The housing of the 60-250mm f/4 ED is ready for harsh conditions,with great dust and weather sealing to go along with the improvements incoating technology to repel moisture and debris from the glass.TheDA* 60-250's complex 15-element optical formula features a pair of EDExtra-Low Dispersion glass elements to help reduce any effects ofchromatic aberration.Shoot the action into the sun, and expect theedges of your subject to be crisp and clean.
The focusing system of this lens is both SDM and normal Pentax KAF2 (with a screw on lens barrel to drive AF from body-based motors).Thisallows the lens to move incredibly quickly with the SDM system, drivenby an internal motor and with the Quick-Shift system providing manualfocus override capacity to you at all times with no buttons to switch.You'll also retain the standard AF performance with the older Pentaxdigital SLR bodies not featuring SDM capacity.
