Designed specifically for Pentax's digital SLR cameras, the 55mm f1.4 DA* SDM Lens is an ideal portrait or still life lens and offers an equivalent focal length of around 85mm (in 35mm film terms) which is perfect for flattering portrait shots. The f1.4 maximum aperture produces soft graduation in out-of-focus areas of your images and also provides superb low-light performance, allowing the photographer to get the best out of available light sources. The SDM focus system incorporated in the Pentax 55mm f1.4 Lens results in a smoother, quieter auto-focus operation using a built-in supersonic motor, while the Pentax Quick-Shift Focus System allows instant switching from autofocus to manual focus operation. With its SP (Super Protect) lens coating that repels dust, water & grease and its weather-resistant construction that matches the weather-proofing of Pentax's DSLR bodies, the Pentax 55mm f1.4 DA* SDM lens is a truly top class piece of glass.

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
