Zoom Lock Switch

The zoom lock switch prevents the lens from extending under its own weight while you are carrying the camera.

HD Coating to optimize image rendition

This lens is treated with the high-grade, multi-layer HD Coating.* Compared with conventional multi-layer coatings, this PENTAX-original coating assures higher light transmittance and less reflection to deliver bright, high-contrast images free of flare and ghost images, even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight. * HD stands for High Definition.

Four AF buttons installed on the lens barrel

In order to provide more stable AF operation and better hold of the lens regardless of the camera’s orientation,  horizontal or vertical, this lens provides four AF buttons on its barrel — one at every 90 degrees.The user can assign preferred settings to these AF buttons, including: a Focus Preset mode to preprogram the focus position and instantly shift the focus to that position; and an AF Cancel mode to intentionally fix the focus at a desired point during Continuous AF operation.

Focus Range Limiter

Focus Range Limiter minimizes AF operation time by allowing the user to fix the focus range to one of three sub-ranges -- Full, close range (2 to 6m)* or far range 6m to ∞). *This limiter does not operate in manual focus.

DC Autofocus Motor

A Direct Current (DC) autofocus motor benefits from an internal focusing design and delivers fast, smooth, and quiet focusing performance.
