The PENTAX 06 TELEPHOTO ZOOM lens for Q-series cameras covers focal lengths between 15mm-45mm, or 83mm-249mm in 35mm format, and a maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its entire zoom range. Since the focal-length range is linked to that of the PENTAX 02 STANDARD ZOOM lens, the photographer can enjoy seamless zoom coverage from wide angle to telephoto by combining these two lenses.
Since this zoom lens features a large maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its entire zoom range, it provides many benefits of a large-aperture lens to the photographer, such as a beautiful bokeh (out of focus) effect, and the use of faster shutter speeds to reduce camera shake during shooting at dimly lit locations.
This lens is super-compact and ultra-lightweight by design, measuring in a 2.2 inches in length and 2.0 inches in diameter, and weighing in at a mere 3.2 ounces. This extremely compact, light lens is designed to enhance ease of carrying and maneuverability.
Super Protect (SP) coating is applied to the front surface of the optics to block dust and dirt.
In order to optimize exceptional image rendition, this zoom lens incorporates two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one super-low dispersion glass element in its optics to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration over the entire zoom range.
The Quick-Shift focus system allows for instant switching to manual focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera’s AF system.
Comes with built-in Shutter-Release Lock to prevent zoom creeping. User will need to turn the zoom ring to at least 15mm to enable focusing.
A round shaped plastic lens hood accessory, PH-RBA 40.5, (sold separately) is available for exclusive use with the PENTAX-06 TELEPHOTO ZOOM lens.
