The PENTAX 08 is the most compact, ultra-wide angle zoom lens available today. This ultra-light, super compact zoom lens has the shortest overall length (approx. 38 millimeters) among the Q-mount zoom lenses, and weighs a mere 75 grams. It offers the flexibility of focal lengths from 17.5mm to 27mm (in the 35mm format) when mounted on a Q7, making it the perfect companion for on-the-go snapshots, landscapes, architecture and street photography where zooming flexibility is desired.
