Full Details


F2.8 aperture throughout its entire zoom range

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. When mounted on a PENTAX Q-mount digital SLR camera body, it covers focal lengths from 83mm medium telephoto to 249mm telephoto (in the 35mm format) to accommodate a wide range of subjects and applications, including portraits, sports events and landscapes.

Exceptional image rendition

In order to optimize 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.

Super-compact, ultra-lightweight design

Measuring 56 millimeters in length and 50 millimeters in diameter and weighing a mere 90 grams, this zoom lens is designed to be extremely compact and lightweight to enhance ease of carrying and enhanced maneuverability. By turning the zoom ring to the click-stop storage marker positioned next to the 15mm focal-length index, the front portion of the lens can be retracted and locked into the lens barrel to further reduce its overall length.

Other features

  • Quick-Shift Focus system for instant switching to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera's AF system
  • SP (Special Protect) coating applied to the front surface of the optics to block dust and dirt
