The PENTAX 06 Telephoto Zoom lens for the Q-series cameras is perfect for zooming in on that great shot from afar. Since the focal-length range is directly linked to the PENTAX 02 Standard Zoom lens, you can enjoy seamless zoom coverage from wide angle to telephoto by combining these two lenses.
It’s super-compact (2.2 inches in length; 2 inches in diameter) and ultra-lightweight by design (a mere 3.2 ounces) and designed to enhance ease of carrying and maneuverability. And by turning the zoom ring to click-stop storage maker, the front portion of the lens can be retracted and locked into the lens barrel, further reducing overall length.
This lens for Q-series cameras covers focal lengths between 15mm-45mm, or 83mm-249mm in 35mm format, and a maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout its entire zoom range. Since the focal-length range is linked to that of the PENTAX 02 STANDARD ZOOM lens, you can enjoy seamless zoom coverage from wide angle to telephoto by combining these two lenses.
Super Protect (SP) coating is applied to the front surface of the optics to block dust and dirt.
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 and optimize exceptional image rendition.
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.
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.
