Product Overview

Pentax HD Pentax DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited is an ultra wide-angle prime lens for Pentax K-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Pentax in 2013, it has 8 elements in 6 groups.
As an ultra wide-angle prime lens that is quite compact, the HD Pentax DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited can be an interesting supplement for those occasions where a normal lens just won't do. Even though the lens is not stabilized, at this focal range it does not usually matter. In fact, some may be able to get cleaner corners without image stabilization.
